In the Reboot Kitchen: Homemade Chai Tea

I love this tea and find it a wonderful winter warmer! The first time I made it from scratch I was in the home of an Indian family whom I had met through my work in London and I fell in love. They offered me tea and asked if I was okay to have an Indian tea. I was happy to have what they were having but when the tea maker didn’t come back for half an hour I was curious as to what on earth he had been up to. I learned he didn’t just pour hot water onto a bag and stir in milk! He was off in the kitchen grating and grinding the spices for the chai tea and it was GOOD. I hope you enjoy this tea as much as I do!
