Chai tea is black tea with spices which is my favorite hot tea that I love to order at the coffee shop every time when I stop by. I love the flavor of the tea with all spices they put in it make me curious what inside this type of tea and I actually research how to prepare it. It is really interesting that originally of this Chai Tea Latte is from India. Indian spices are all well known which they are very clever of how they put all spices blend well into a cup of black tea and add some milk then they called it "Chai Tea Latte".
I often drink this chai tea latte in the morning to refresh myself before I start my day. Also, this tea can be serve at English afternoon tea time with blueberry scones and raspberry sauce, I would enjoy this time with my favorite people to chit chat and relaxing. Or serving this tea with evening dessert like cream puffs or cake which is also go well together.
