Dustin's Chai Tea

As requested, Dustin's Chai Tea:

Take a small pot and fill it about 2/3 full of water.
Bring water to a boil.
Turn off heat. Add 2-3 bags of Chai Tea (We use Celestial Seasoning, Original India Spice...)
Let it sit for 5 minutes.
Remove tea bags.
Add milk (fill nearly to top of pot)
Add sugar to taste (2-3 tablespoons)
Stir until sugar dissolves.
Turn heat back on for 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour carefully.

DISCLAIMER: Following the recipe doesn't guarantee results. It is a trial and error process. I can't make it quite like Dustin's. With enough sugar and practice, however, you can get it pretty stinkin' close to Starbucks quality... and save a few bucks!

Mmmmm...trying it tonight! The best feeling in the world? Sitting with your husband in your warm, cozy house on the couch in your jammie pants sipping something warm when it is cold outside.

This sounds delicious but seems like way too much trouble.

No Rich, it's WAY easy. I promise. It just sounds hard.... It's just like brewing regular tea... basically. We'll have you guys over sometime and make you some. You can do it!

Thanks for stopping by!
