What You'll Need

To make this delicious holiday chai tea, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 4 black tea bags
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 cloves
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup
  • Whipped cream and ground cinnamon for garnish (optional)

Let's Get Brewing!

Step 1: In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom pods, and ginger. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes to infuse the flavors.

Step 2: Add the tea bags to the saucepan and let them steep for 3-4 minutes. If you prefer a stronger tea, you can steep it for a bit longer.

Step 3: Remove the tea bags and add the milk to the saucepan. Stir in the honey or maple syrup to sweeten the tea to your liking.

Step 4: Heat the mixture over medium heat until it's hot but not boiling. Be sure to stir occasionally to prevent the milk from scorching.

Step 5: Once the tea is hot, remove it from the heat and strain it into a teapot or directly into your mugs. This will remove any leftover spices or tea leaves.

Step 6: Serve your holiday chai tea in festive mugs and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon if desired.

Cozy Mornings and Happy Hearts

Now that you have your steaming cup of holiday chai tea, it's time to gather your family around and enjoy the cozy moment together. The warm spices and creamy texture will instantly put everyone in a festive mood.

Feel free to customize your holiday chai tea by adding a dash of nutmeg or a pinch of allspice for an extra holiday twist. You can also adjust the sweetness according to your preference.

Remember, it's not just about the taste, but the love and care you put into making this special drink for your family. So, take a sip, savor the moment, and let the warmth of the tea fill your hearts with joy.

Wishing you a merry and cozy holiday filled with love, laughter, and delicious homemade treats!
