Spiced Chai Tea


With four kids, sometimes a mid-day tea break is necessary and this Spiced Chai Tea is just perfect for that!

I love to take just a few minutes out of each day to sit down with a hot cup of coffee or tea and relax…quiet time to reflect on the day and to prepare for what’s coming next.

Even during the warmer months, a cup of tea can provide comfort and can relieve stress when you take the time to pause life and enjoy it.

One of my favorite afternoon teas is a spiced Chai tea. I love the blend of spices and how the aroma of cinnamon and ginger fills your home. One can’t help but stop and take a breather when you have a cup of this goodness in front of you. Go ahead, make a cup and relax. You deserve it!
