Recipe: Sweet Diana Chai

I am not a milky tea person, but I do make an exception when it comes to Chai – an invigorating, spicy brew that always makes me feel warm, tingly and all is well with the world. My friend, Diana also loves Chai and painstakingly made some of her own Chai earlier this year. She has kindly allowed me to share her recipe with you.

Step #1: Get ONE (1) teabag.

Step #2: Add the spices – because Diana doesn’t like it too spicy, she just added 1.5 aniseeds and 1 clove (not indicated how many sticks of cinnamon – but I assume a stick or two?) If you’d like, you can also include cardamom  and black pepper.

Step #3: Open up cans of evaporated milk and condensed milk. Fatty creaminess + sticky sweetness = winning combination.

Step #4: One ladle of evaporated milk, 3 tablebspoons condensed milk. C’mon, live a little.

Step #5: Put everything into a pot with 1 1/2 mugs of water, boil. Important, secret sub-step: Stir for 15 mins.
