Chai Concentrate

Recently I fell in love with Chai. My family has enjoyed it for years, but for whatever reason I had never tried it. I had a cup the other week as I have been delving into various teas as a part of my liquor avoidance. My enjoyment of loose leaf tea has been growing.

The other day, my wife decide she wanted to try her hand at making Chai Concentrate. She found the recipe on Tasty Yummies and set to work. She filled the slow cooker with ingredients we never had in the house before. After a few hours, the smell that flowed through our home was absolutely heavenly.

Once the process in the slow cooker was done, our oldest set to work filtering out the chai concentrate. A large pitcher was filled and then another half pitcher. The Chai was left alone to allow more of the sediment to form at the bottom.

We then sampled the Chai in some milk. I was astounded at how delicious it was. My wife has since had about a half dozen glasses and there is plenty leftover remaining.

Besides a delicious beverage to be had, my wife found pleasure in constantly saying “Chai Tea” in order to irritate our 18 year old. Random had to correct my wife by asking why she insisted on saying “Tea Tea”. I was just amused by the banter throughout the process.

I recommend others to make the Chai concentrate- especially if you drink Chai lattes on a regular basis.
