Chai Tea

I remember when chai was the new thing. I was never a big fan. I guess I had to make it myself to fall in love. I love drinking tea, but this mixture of tea, almond milk, and spices just calms every nerve in my body! It’s perfect on a chilly winter night when you’re snuggled up on the couch! It’s also great poured over a glass of ice in the summer! Enjoy.
