Ch, Ch, Chai ...

Ok it's official - I just love a good chai latte!  This is my standard Tuesday afternoon fix while waiting for CJ at gym - there's nothing better!!

For those poor uninitiated souls - a chai latte is a spiced tea mixed with milk that’s steamed from an espresso machine.  The spices vary from recipe to recipe, but usually consist of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, pepper and ginger. The best part is the smooth foamy texture the steamed milk adds to the chai. You can make these yourself at home with packet mixes or with an expresso machine if you are lucky enough to own one but the best way to enjoy them is in a good coffee shop where you can sit back and relax and have someone else prepare this little glass of wonder for you.
