Chai Time

Another kitchen adventure with my good friend Tamara (if you click on her name it will take you to her blog. You should totally check it out since she is AMAZING!) Tamara and I seem to find strength in each other when trying out new recipes that we find to be a bit daunting as well as life's journey. We've known each other since we were kids and even though we life took us in separate directions for a bit I am very glad that life has brought us back together!

What better way to spend a morning then with a good friend making chai syrup! For those of you who don't know what chai is it's tea! I didn't write down the recipe we used but I found a similar one online here. We doubled the recipe so that we both would have chai syrup.
Our ingredients

Boil all dry ingredients

with cinnamon sticks broken into pieces.

After mixture has boiled add tea bags for about 10 minutes.

Remove teabags and strain (saving the liquid and returning it back to the pot and back on the stove).

Add honey and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Then add vanilla and let boil again.

Let syrup cool and funnel into your chosen container.

Mix 2-4 tablespoons into warm milk and enjoy!
Happy crafting!
