Day 8: Chai Tea for You and Me
Here is a recap so far of the 12 Days of My Mug and Me:
Day 1: Favorite Coffee Shop Drink
Day 2: Anyone Care for a Cuppa Tea?
Day 3: Eggnog Shake and a Smile
Day 4: Unleaded Cocktails Anyone?
Day 5: Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Day 6: No Soup For You?
Day 7: Creative Use for a Common Problem
Today’s Travel Mug use is for another great hot beverage. The temperature is a mighty -9 this morning in Minnesota so this next hot beverage was a welcome addition to the list.
What’s in the Mug?
Today’s mug contains a wonderful Chai Tea. What is Chai Tea? It is a fabulous combination of black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, sugar, milk, and cloves. The ingredients can vary from recipe to recipe but these are the basics. You can make Chai Tea at home or order it at your favorite coffee shop, either way it is a nice change from coffee or regular tea.
