Make your favorite coffee shop beverage right at home! This Chai Tea recipe is very easy to make and full of spices and flavor! Comfort in a cup!

I started drinking Chai Tea about 12 years ago after I met my husband. I never had it before and after he introduced me to it, I was hooked!

I’ve tried so many different types from coffee shops and really I only like my own recipe. Now, whenever the weather starts getting brisk and cool, I want a delicious chai tea.

This Chai Tea recipe is my go-to when I need some comfort. It’s so soothing and wonderful to me.

While, yes, you can buy Chai Tea concentrate in stores, I find that is often not as flavorful and usually full of a lot of additives. Making your own Chai Tea recipe right at home is easy enough.

I really appreciate this tutorial! I love chai tea and although I don't have the chance to grab a cup of it at my favorite cafe all the time, it would be awesome to be able to make it at the comfort of my own home!
