Traditional Chai Tea

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Nurse Rain

This is a spicy, creamy tea that I make every Christmas. Its more my tradition than the authentic tea. Its tasty and sure to warm you from the inside out. Great for those with a cold or flu... clears your sinuses and settles your tummy.

Chai tea is one of my favorite warm drinks, but so many of them are too sweet and artificial tasting. This chai is a perfect mix of spice and sweet. It is delicious!! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is definitely a keeper!!
