Even though I make all of these fun fruit tea drinks, I don’t consider myself a big tea drinker. At least, I didn’t consider myself a big tea drinker. Now I am a convert.
In the past I would only drink iced sweet tea with three lemon slices. Yes, three. Not one, not two, three.
Now I am experimenting with all of these different types of tea and accompanying flavors and I really love it. Recently, I jumped on the Chai bandwagon – I know I am like six years late, but better late than never, right?
My favorite is this vanilla chai. I use my Keurig to make my tea so I set it to the smallest possible setting (6 ounces) place the tea bag in my cup and let the hot water pour over it, and then I let it steep for awhile.
While the tea is perfectly lovely just like that I have become obsessed with this iced version. I just brew my tea, rather strongly, drizzle a little honey and vanilla extract in the hot tea and stir it until the honey melts completely then let it cool.
When I am ready to drink it I pour it over ice and add a teeny bit of cream to it. It is perfectly sweet and creamy with a nice touch of vanilla and that signature spice that chai is known for.
I am not even sure I can even call this a recipe. The measurements below are meant to be a guide, adjust them as necessary for your personal preferences.
