Genuine Authentic Homemade Chai Tea

IMG_1837
I am at it again. I am notorious for finding a food, beverage, or snack that I love, but then I read the ingredients and its all over.  When I want to indulge in something tasty I want it to have real ingredients.
Why does the FDA add natural flavors, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial colors to so many of our foods?… thats for another post, but for now, sip on this authentic Indian chai tea.
This is nothing like the sugary, super spicy, or the ones that don’t even taste like chai. This is the r.e.a.l deal.
This tasty organic//gluten free// authentic chai tea comes from real herbs and spices that will make you slip out of your shoes and snuggle up to a good book and probably finish the whole batch (at least I did) ~Enjoy!
