The Making of Chai Tea

hgfk-17

Above are the ingredients I used to make my chai tea latte. The amount I made was just enough to fit into a 32 oz mason jar. This recipe was extremely easy and took no more than 2 minutes, 10 of which were spent just steeping the spices. I highly recommend this amazing recipe, it was so good!
