Homemade Chai Latte
Serves 1
6 oz hot water
1 tbsp raw honey (favorite of all time: White Gold)
6 tsp loose-leaf chai tea (favorites include: this one* and this one)
6 oz milk of choice
whole spices: cinnamon sticks, cloves, green cardamom pods, peppercorns, star anise
cinnamon powder, for sprinkling

Add honey to hot water, stirring until dissolved. Prepare loose-leaf chai for brewing method (infuser, teapot, etc.), then add hot water with dissolve honey and cover. Allow to steep for recommended time (note: black tea becomes bitter after about three minutes of steeping). Meanwhile, heat milk with whole spices of choice in a small saucepan on medium heat. Once the milk begins to bubble slightly (but not burn or stick to the edges of the saucepan-about five minutes), remove from heat and strain out whole spices. Pour tea into 12 oz mug. Pour in milk. Top with desired amount of cinnamon. Serve immediately.
