The sun is shining this morning. What a perfect light to take a photo. However, my throat feels a little like I swallowed a frog, so I really really wanted tea this morning and not my usual coffee. But I don’t have an espresso machine at home. My husband did buy me one for my birthday, but I had something else in mind that I wanted which I gave him big hints about, which he ignored. Can you guess what it was? Well, I’ll give you a hint. I had to buy it myself. And the espresso machine went back to the store. So anyway, back to the chai. I got a recipe for you.

I love chai latte. It’s my new addiction. Thanks to my friend L. who has introduced me to it a long time ago. But hers was from a coffee shop that starts with an “S” (no need to name names), so I wasn’t that impressed with the flavors. But I did get curious because she likes that drink so much. So I have tried it in other, better coffee shops, Seattle has many of those, and I got hooked.
