DIY Chai Tea Latte

Welcome to The 12 Days of Christmas DIY series! I am sharing 12 Christmas DIYs with you all now through Christmas! I'm so excited for this series, and I'll hope you'll join me each day for a new project!
 
With all of the Christmas shopping, wrapping, preparing, cooking, and more, I know I need a little time in the day for ME, to relax and put up my feet. Today I have a DIY Chai Tea Latte to bring an easy luxurious drink to your day to soothe and warm you up!

For this recipe, you will need:

Boiled Water/Hot Water Pot
Mug
Small Saucepan
Any Chai tea bag, mine is the Vanilla Chai
Milk
Spiced Latte Coffeemate Creamer
Vanilla extract
Ground Cinnamon

Step 1: Boil water

Step 2: Make your "steamed" milk
Pour about 3/4 cup of milk (your favorite kind) per mug of tea into a saucepan.
 
 Add in about 1/4 cup Spiced Latte Coffeemate into the saucepan per mug as well. Don't worry, there is no coffee flavor in the Coffeemate! So it could also be called "Tea Mate"! :) Add more creamer or milk to taste.
Add in a sprinkle or 5 of Ground Cinnamon to the saucepan, again to taste.

 And then some vanilla extract for a fuller flavor! About 1 tsp. for 2-3 servings.

Whisk everything together and bring to JUST a boil, then turn to low and simmer until needed. The whisk creates more of an airy texture, to mimic the steam.

Step 3: Steep your Tea
Place your Chai tea bag into your mug. It can be ANY Chai tea you want. Mine is Twinings Vanilla Chai for a sweeter flavor!
 
 Once your water is boiled, pour some into your mug, about 1/3 full.

Steep WELL, at least 5 minutes, until the water is nice and dark.

Step 4: Mix it all Up!
Pour your steamed milk into your mug.
 Stir it up all good!
ENJOY! Put your feet up, Get the Fire Going, and take some time for YOU!
