I am back. After a long sleep, I have awoken.
What is better to awake to than kisses? Chai. I like to think of it as a hug in a mug.
This tea enlivens me from the bones to the rose on my cheeks. My eyes open a little wider, my breath deepens, and my mind is cleared from a fog of dreamy sleep.
Chai, I have a love affair with you.
Yes, frigid winters are warmed with this spiced delight, but I am talking about sipping Chai tea all year long. I drink it daily, alongside my honey nut granola (try Viki’s Original Honey Granola) or a simple Fuji apple. Pair it with fresh Bing cherries or stone ground wheat crackers (my favorite is Carr’s Whole Wheat Crackers).
Chai tea doesn’t stop at the bag. The spiced medley can be incorporated into almost anything. Sauces, icings, baked goods, even meats. Add Chai to your next chocolate cake recipe and prepare for the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’.
