Chocolate Chai

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Mandy

I'm not really a big tea fan but I saw this recipe & just had to try it. I love the blend of spices with the cocoa, it's really great. I used vanilla tea with mine so mine was more like a chocolate vanilla chai, I suppose you could experiment with things like caramel or even toffee tea too. Recipe is from SFI.

Very rich tasting, and the cocoa was a nice addition. It helps to crack the cardamom pods a bit before using, to get more flavor from the seeds. Personally, I really like cardamom, so may use ground next time for more flavor. A nice comforting cuppa on a cold, dreary afternoon. Made for Winter 2010 Comfort Cafe game.
