How to make a delicious cup of chai tea
I absolutely LOVE hot tea, especially when the weather turns chilly outside! This is my recipe for the perfect cup of chai - the spicy aroma of the tea & rich caramel scent of the syrup is my heaven.
Place one chai spice tea bag in your cup - brand doesn't matter, use whatever is your favorite.
Add a splash of Torani Salted Caramel Syrup - I use appx a tablespoon, but it's really up to your taste preference.
This is raw sugar simple syrup. I use appx a teaspoon, but again, it's a sweetness preference.
Here's the raw sugar syrup recipe, in case you'd like to make your own. I prefer raw sugar because it imparts a deep, rich, molasses taste.
If I don't have any syrup made, I use a heaping teaspoon of raw sugar granules.
One heaping teaspoon of creamer - I use powder simply for the longer shelf life, but have made it with half & half or liquid creamer as well.
Brew your hot water! I'm blessed to have a Keurig, but you can also heat water in your teapot, or in the microwave. If you microwave it, just heat the water as your first step, then add the rest.
