Authentic Chai Recipe

It's time once again for the Taste Creations Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is Warm Drinks.

I like warm drinks, but I live in Phoenix, so I typically opt for iced beverages, but it's been cool and rainy here lately--perfect weather for this month's Taste Creations theme.  I decided to try making real chai, that delicious, creamy, Indian, spiced tea drink.

There are plenty of instant chai mixes out there, and quite frankly, I like them, but I'd never had really authentic chai, and I was eager to taste the difference.

I still have plenty of ground spices in my spice drawer, but I'm accumulating more and more varieties of whole spices, too.  I can always taste the difference when I take the time to use the whole spices--a delicious difference.  I researched a bunch of different chai recipes, and in the end decided to use this one.  It was straightforward, and I happened to have all of the whole spices on hand already.  

Ready for the authentic chai recipe?  Head to Page Two to see how to make this warm delight for yourself.
