Chai Latte (Homemade)

 Chai Latte (Homemade)

Chai what is it?  The word means tea in many parts of the world so when we say Chai Tea, we are really saying tea – tea.  It is usually made with black tea but you can also find it with green or white tea.  It is made  up of various spices  ~cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper being the most common.  Other spices that can be used are fennel seed, Anise Star, nutmeg and coriander.   This tea is usually drank  with milk and sweetener.  The sweetener is to bring out the flavours of the spices.   

This tea is drank hot in India but here in the Western Countries we now drink it over ice, in milkshakes and even with chocolate.  The traditional tea is made with a heavy milk, but now it is drank will low fat milks, is decaffinated and low cal sweeteners are used.  To me it is the perfect drink warm to take the chill away on these cold, snowy days.
