Iced Chai Tea



Iced Chai TeaI love all things Chai! I've tried many Chai flavored teas and the brand that I think has the most flavor is Good Earth...I always buy the decaf version! I love the strong spices that this tea has. Many tea brands are weak and bland. But I never let those other brands go to waste! That's where my Iced Chai Tea idea came from! I thought they tasted better cold than hot! I brew them real strong. Then just add a french vanilla creamer (yes, I love it with Coffeemate! It's not just for coffee) and a sweetener...either Splenda or regular sugar, along with some really good spicy hot ground cinnamon! I keep the Chai Iced Tea in a pitcher in my fridge. Then I just put some in a glass with ice and I'm good to go!
Iced Chai TeaHere is how I brewed this batch. I measured 2 cups of water in a microwave safe measuring cup. I microwaved it on high for 4 minutes. Then I added 8 chai tea bags, stir then covered it with plastic wrap and let it steep for 10 minutes...Then squeeze and remove tea bags!
I love my cute little pear kitchen timer!
I used this brand of chai for the iced tea because it was one of those tea brands that tasted better cold than hot! After I brewed the tea I added some spicy hot ground cinnamon powder (1/4 tsp.) to give it more flavor! Stirring til well blended. Then I added 8 packets of Splenda and 1/4 cup of french vanilla creamer and 3 cups of cold water. Stir again! It's so good! Perfect for a warm day...so refreshing and soothing! Chai always has that effect on me! People tell me that chamomile is a relaxing type of tea, but I don't agree! Chai does it for me! Even when it's iced! If you love the flavor of chai, give this a try...ha ha..it rhymes!

    3. Yes, I would love it if you 'Pin' it! I don't have a 'Pin' button, so you would have to do it through your own 'Pin It' button. I have my 'Pin It' button saved into my favorites for whenever I want to 'pin' something from the Internet. I do have the other buttons...Twiiter, Facebook, Email, etc...Thank you so much for asking! =)
