Easy Chai Tea Latte
Everyone loves a good cup of tea now and then. If you are not a tea drinker, this recipe will convert you! I have been replacing my morning cup of coffee with this tea because I am trying to cut down on the amount of caffeine that I consume. With this tea, I don’t even miss that morning coffee! The tea is slow brewed for deep rich flavor with a winning combination of spices. Make a big batch because you will want more and more! It’s also delicious iced.
Don’t forget to share it with your family, my teenage boys love it! It’s so much healthier than soda, and very inexpensive to make.

The coconut milk really makes this tea amazing! You can also try Almond Milk, but I highly recommend the coconut milk. There are so many good health benefits to this tea! This combination of spices has been around for ages in the middle east and is known to have benefits such as blood purification, aids in digestion, aids the nervous system, strengthens the bones, and gives you increased energy. Did I mention that it’s low calorie? It is! Honestly, it’s a win, win!
