Chai Tea


One of my favorite things about Autumn is the cozy blanket of spice and warmth, not just provided by a pair of fuzzy socks but from the wealth of spices that nature has to offer.  A steaming mug of chai is the perfect swirling mixture that is just enough familiarity wrapped up in the novelty of something different that provides a nice break from the regular pumpkin spice.  Not to mention, if it’s not quite cool where you are, it stands up on its own to a glass full of ice and pairs beautifully with any pastry kissed with fall flavors.
