Well there’s really nothing better on a blisteringly cold day than a hot & spicy cup of chai.

We drink this all year round at home because it’s just too good. This is kinda my cheats, impatient way of making it, but for the best result you can leave this to simmer for over half an hour until it’s a deep almost terracotta. I also like to drink it super sweet, so I’m not sparing with the sweetener. But of course adjust it to your preference!
