Chai Tea Recipe: Another Winter Warmer

More Winter Warmer Recipes

Hot drinks warm you from the inside out. If it’s not the right time of day for our mulled wine recipe, try one of these:

Indian Chai Tea Recipe
3 cups water
3 whole cloves
3 tea bags (black tea)
1 tbsp. whole cinnamon (pieces broken)
2 cups milk
Sugar or honey to taste

In a medium pot, place the water, cloves, and cinnamon on medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Let it boil for at least five minutes or until the water is fragrant and medium caramel colored. Add the tea bags and return to boil an additional minute. Add the milk and let it come back to a boil. Remove it from the heat and take the tea bags out. Pour up a mug of tea and season it with sugar or honey to taste. You’ll be warm and toasty in no time!

Or if you prefer coffee to tea:

Eggnog Latte Recipe
(You will need a steaming pitcher and steaming wand for this recipe)
1/3 cup skim milk
2/3 cup eggnog
1 espresso shot (about 1.5 fluid ounce)
1 pinch ground nutmeg or cinnamo

Place the milk and eggnog in the steaming pitcher and heat to about 165 degrees F with the help of the steaming wand. Make your shot of espresso and pour into your favorite mug. Add the steamed milk and eggnog into the mug, but hold back the foam using a spoon. Add the foam on top and sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon.

Of course, you can also simply add egg nog to coffee (in place of creamer) for an easy winter warmer with festive holiday flavor.
