Chai Tea On Cold Days

It's been pretty cold in Southern California. At least for Southern California standards. And I wake up craving something hot. 

So, I made fresh spicy, flavorful, sweet homemade chai tea. It was a perfect way to start my early, cold morning. 

An afternoon in a La Costa Resort {we became members back in December - thank you WES!} hot tub is also a great way to beat the chill. 

Happy Monday!


1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp cloves {about 4 or 5}

1/4 tsp ground cardamom {or 4-5 whole}

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

2 bags or black tea or 1 Tbls loose leaf

Using a mortar pestal, grind all spices together. Pour enough hot water over tea bags or loose leaf tea to fill a standard mug. Let steep. Remove tea and add the ground spices. You can add as much of it as you'd like. About 1-2 teaspoons. Add cream {creamer} of choice and some raw honey. PERFECTION!!
