Now I know I haven’t posted in a while, mainly because I’ve been really trying to work on my thesis/been at a conference. I do have a whole bunch of things I have baked just waiting to get shared but in the mean time for all you chai loving lactose intolerant people out in the world (like myself) I give you chai tea you can make at home!
This recipe is really simple and only takes 15 mins to make. I based my recipe off of the one I got from Around my family Table, mainly I upped the spices as I’m not one for subtle flavours (burnt my tongue one too many times on hot choc and tea..). Another great thing is this can be served either hot or cold..
Soy chai tea:
1L of soy milk (sweetened or unsweetened doesn’t matter. Just up the sugar if unsweetened)
1/8 c sugar (1/4c if unsweetened soy)
3 cinnamon sticks
1/8 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
6 black tea bags
Bring the soy, sugar, and the spices to a simmer for about 10 minutes, making sure the spices are incorporated into the milk. Then add the tea bags and simmer for an additional 5-6 minutes. Strain into a clean pitcher and chill or serve immediately.
