My current obsession is chai; whether that be a chai latte, chocolate chai, chai tea etc...I have been loving it all! If you don't know what chai is, basically it's tea made by boiling tea lies with milk, sugar and sometimes spices. I came across this chocolate chai recipe and, being the chai addict I am, HAD to try it out

Serves: 2

3 teaspoons loose-leaf black tea
8 cardamom pods
2 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
4 teaspoons sugar/sweeter
1/2 cup milk

Step #1- Combine tea, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, allspice, cocoa powder, sugar/sweetner and 1 1/2 cups of cold water in a saucepan.
Step #2- Bring to the boil over medium-high hear until bubbling. Then reduce to a medium-low heat and let simmer, stirring for 5 minutes until aromatic.
Step #3- Add milk. Leave to simmer and stir occasionally for 5 minutes or until hot. Strain into 2 heatproof glasses or cups and serve.

* If you don't have or can't find some of the spices, you can always just used a pre-made spiced chai tea mix. I get mine from Coles and it has 2 variations; spiced or vanilla.
* You could also get syrups which they sell at Woolworths.

I absolutely love this recipe, the end result is absolutely delicious and you save heaps of money 
by making it yourself!
