I love chai, but it’s so warm and spicy that I can’t bear to drink it in the spring and summer. I usually just stare at it forlornly in the cabinet and look forward to fall. Luckily my favorite local tea source, Tin Roof Teas, posted this iced chai recipe on facebook recently. I’ve been making it almost daily ever since. I never would have thought of putting maple syrup in tea, but it’s pretty genius.
By the way, these glass straws are the best.
This serving board is also the best.
2 tsp of your favorite loose leaf chai (steeped in 6oz boiling water for 5 minutes)
1 tsp maple syrup
2 oz milk (or use half milk, half cream to make it extra creamy)
1 glass of ice
Combine the chai, maple syrup and milk. Pour over ice. Guzzle!
