Living so close to the beach, I often wake up to a cool marine layer hovering over the loft. Instead of turning on the heat, I like to make my coconut chai tea latte to warm up my toes. It uses classic chai spices: cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and assam black tea, along with a little fresh ginger. I hope you enjoy it!
Coconut Chai Tea Latte
- Grind the cardamom pods, cloves, cinnamon stick and ginger with a mortar and pestle. Add the mixture to a small saucepan along with the 2 cups of water. Place over high heat and bring to a rolling boil.
- Remove from heat and stir in the honey and tea. Let steep 4 minutes.
- Combine the milk and coconut milk in a medium saucepan and bring to low rolling boil. Pour the milk in to the tea mixture. Strain the tea into 2 mugs.
