DIY Chai Latte

As with any recipe, you need quality ingredients. 
If you buy cheap products, it may taste that way.
Just saying.
We love these drinks and they can be a pretty penny at the Bux.
We started making our own
Chai Lattes
You need really good milk {whatever floats your boat}
I've tried:
Soy
Almond
Coconut
The best BY FAR has been glass jar whole milk.
Go figure.
There are two great choices for the chai:

via
The recipe:
Equal parts of each & bring to a light roaring boil
(ex. 1 cup of tea = 1 cup of milk)
{When it begins to bubble, WATCH it otherwise you will have milk runneth over}
{I get caffeine free because of Joe's Crohn's}
I like to make it boil so that gives the frothiness
that an actual espresso/latte maker would give you.
Pour into adorable mugs and enjoy with your sweetie 
{or friend, loved one, whomever!}
We still enjoy them out and about, but when at home...
DIY!
Do you have any at home hot drink recipes?
