Chai latte. Perfect cool-weather spicy comfort in a cup.
But it's a bit of bother to make from scratch. Which I've done for years using a real-deal chai recipe (straight from a missionary in India!): chopped and smashed fresh ginger, crushed green cardamom pods, simmered with cinnamon, black tea, sugar and finished off with milk.
Then I was introduced to essential oils. Transformative!
So here's a quick and easy way to make chai. Honestly, my from-scratch recipe is a 10 on the 1 - 10 scale of goodness. This quick version is a good solid 9. If I can get 90% of the goodness with about 2% of the effort, that's a pretty decent trade off, right?!
And this recipe has nice health benefits from the addition of essential oils: immune and digestive support in particular. Especially important as we head into winter!

* drop: For recipes, I highly recommend removing the dropper top and using an eye dropper for better control of quantity. Usually the drop-size is smaller, too, giving you even more control. The difference between one drop and two is huge!
** how do you subtract and use less than one drop? You can dip a toothpick into the oil and then swirl into your tea. Clever!
