Chai Tea

While we were still in Texas, a sweet friend taught me the basics of how to make a delicious, healthy chai tea. For those of you interested, I wanted to pass on the recipe so that you can enjoy it's warm yumminess. :-) Here is our recipe that you can adjust to your liking...
  • 8 cups water
  • 5 bags Lipton tea or 5 bags Red Rooibos tea
  • approx. 20 cardamon pods
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 T. fennel seeds
  • 5 c. milk
  • approx. 3/4 c raw sugar, maple syrup, or honey

Put the water, tea bags, cracked open cardamon pods (cracked open with the back of a spoon), cinnamon stick, and fennel seeds in a big pot. Bring it to a simmer, cover, and let simmer for 10 minutes or so. Add the milk and your choice of sweetener. Let warm on low for 5-8 minutes. Take off heat and let cool for 10 minutes or so. Pull out your favorite tea cups or mugs, gather some friends, your family and ENJOY!

Hey Andrea,
I love you and I just wanted to send you a little thank you note for the awesome granola ("super food") and the beautiful soap. I am so enjoying them. I really want you to know that I appreciate you being in the journey of weight loss and endurance in Jesus! I love you and miss you.

Love,
