#pinaddicts challenge no. 5 - Chai Tea Loveliness
This month I decided to put the sewing machine to one side and focus on Chai Tea having become recently addicted to the stuff.
The following pins on Pinterest inspired me to have a go at making my own.
The first version required spices and condensed milk so was more time consuming, fattening and expensive to produce. The second version used teabags, milk and a couple of cloves so was quicker, had fewer calories and was cheaper to put together!
I did, however, have a go at both.
I played around with a couple of recipes and used the above ingredients plus black peppercorns...and TEA!
Next time I will ditch the ginger - it didn't work for me.
Mistake - I should have added the tea at the end!
An hour later: Iced Chai Tea Latte!
The easier version just involved steeping the teabags and cloves, cooling off in the fridge and adding cold milk and ice.
I actually preferred the latter version as it was less sickly sweet. I do, however, plan to tinker around with using fresh spices to make it a more authentic chai tea taste.
I wasn't content with stopping with the tea though and wanted to have a go at these:-
Chai Tea Cookies
Here's my attempt!
They were delicious, with or without the chocolate!
Not wanting to be left out the children grabbed some dough, minus the tea leaves, and made their own Jubilee Crown biscuits.
What do you think?!
