You may already know chai tea tastes good. Did you also know? Chai Tea is good for you!
“Tea began as a medicine and grew into a beverage.” ~ Okakura Kakuzo
15 benefits of Chai Tea:
Typically your cuppa chai contains:
Black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, milk (usually whole) sugar/sweetener. Some variations also include: nutmeg, pepper and star anise.
Most chai tea blends contain caffeine because it’s a black tea. Black tea contains about ½ the amount of caffeine as coffee. Rooibos Chai doesn’t contain caffeine.

ALMOND CHAI LATTES
Yield: 4 - Adapted from Bon Appetit
You can adapt the recipe for an individual serving. Store your chai and refrigerate. When you want to serve your tea, warm it on the stovetop or in the microwave. Enjoy!
3 1/2 cups filtered water
1, 1½-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely grated
1 3-inch cinnamon stick, lightly crushed with the flat side of a knife
14 green cardamom pods, lightly crushed, or ¾ teaspoon cardamom seeds, lightly crushed
6 black tea bags
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
ground cinnamon, optional
Combine filtered water, grated ginger, cinnamon stick, and cardamom pods in a 3-quart saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to a heavy simmer, then reduce heat and simmer steadily for twenty minutes; until the mixture has reduced by one third.
Drop in tea bags and allow to steep for five minutes.
In the meantime, pour the almond milk into a glass jar or measuring cup and microwave for 3 minutes, or until steaming. Stir in almond extract and froth with an electric frother.
Strain the tea into a small tea pot and stir in granulated sugar until dissolved.
Divide the tea amongst four mugs (if you are using 6-ounce mugs this should be halfway) and fill to the top with frothed almond milk. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and serve immediately. Enjoy!
