Chocolate Chai


I have never been too much of an Indian chai drinker; I always have my tea black with mint. I saw this recipe and thought I would try it and I was extremely happy with it. This was an amazing cup of chai with nothing to overpowering. I know it may sound like a weird combination but something about all of this just works.

1/2 cup water
1 bag black tea
1 3-inch piece stick cinnamon
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom

1. In a small saucepan, combine water, tea bag and cinnamon. Bring to boiling. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Discard tea bag and cinnamon stick. Stir milk, sugar, cocoa, vanilla, ginger and cardamom into tea. Cook and stir over medium heat just until mixture is heated (do not boil).

Yields: 2 servings
