A little cup of hot chai before jetting off for the day. I once attempted to make my own from scratch and well…never again (until I find an easier method). For now I’m delighted with the “slow brew” chai from Tipu’s Chai. They make instant, decaf, and concentrate versions, but the slow brew is my favorite. Steep in hot water and whole milk.
I used to get individual bags from Dean & Deluca’s, but the four-pack set online is a better deal. Protect from moisture (they keep well in the fridge) and share with friends. I’ve yet to find someone that turns down an offer of hot chai. Especially in this weather. Sometimes I even grate in fresh ginger. The slow, spicy burn makes it truly amazing ^_^
