Weather forecast says we could expect more snow in next few days. So, this is an excuse to make a large cup of salted caramel Chai Tea Latte (not that we need an excuse).
The recipe is simple: cook tea with spices, warm milk brown sugar and caramel sauce. Combine both liquids and serve with whipped cream. At first glance it may seem that there are lot of spices used, but they are not so strong tasting. If you’re sensitive to powdered spices, you may strain the liquid in the end.
Chai Tea Latte, with addition of salted caramel sauce, can both warm you and comfort you on a frosty winter day or night.
