Sweet Morning Iced Chai

Property of #thepaleopact.
Standard

This is a great pick me up in the morning. My favorite part is that you don’t have to wait forever for it to cool down, which anyone whose’s made a jug of ice tea knows how long hot tea takes to cool down.

INGREDIENTS 

12 ounces of water
1 chai tea bag (Tazo is always great and it’s organic)
2 black tea bags (you can substitute decaf here if you’re not big on caffeine) 
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup of ice (you can adjust the amount depending on your drink container)

RECIPE

Bring 12 ounces of water to boil (an electric kettle is great for this). Place 3 tea bags into a glass and pour water over the tea bags and let steep for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes remove the tea bags and discard, mix in 1 tablespoon of honey. Fill your tumbler (or tea container) with ice and pour tea mixture over ice. Add more ice if necessary. You’re good to go!

Have a Chai-tastic Morning!
