I’ve given up coffee, not caffeine, coffee! A cup of green tea or chai tea amounts to half the caffeine of a cup of coffee. I drink mostly green tea but I’ve started drinking chai tea lattes. I think I’ve given up one addiction up for another because I have grown to love chai tea lattes. However, going through the drive-through at Starbucks or Tim Hortons starts to cost me some bucks. So here is my version of a latte:
Chai tea teabag
Milk – enough for a cup
Use either a blender or the bullet and froth the milk for a few seconds.
Put the tea bags and the frothed milk in a saucepan and heat over medium heat.
Bring to a boil (watch that the milk doesn’t burn or froth over the sides).
Pour into cups and spoon the frothed milk on top.
Voila – much cheaper than Starbucks and really good….
Note: I make it with skim milk..
