Easy Chai Latte

Chai Tea Latte

If you live in the Edmonton area, you have dealt with the neverending insurmountable amount of falling snow this weekend. Add the wind, and your sidewalks don't ever look fully shoveled clean. My muscles decided on payback and I sit here typing, sore and knotted. Does anyone else get knots? I get them a LOT, it's painful and annoying.

Snowed in, between shoveling and nursing muscle knots, I drank a plenty of tea and it dawned on my that I could make chai latte with one of the teas. Any tea that has a spicy/cinnamon blend will work. It's very simple to make and it was really tasty.

And with all the snow, I decided to take pictures of my chai latte with a much more brighter and cheerier tone. I can at least pretend I'm in a tropical paradise with every sip. Where it's warm, free of snow, sunny and bright, oh Mr. Pool boy, why yes, you can slather some lotion on my back, why, yes, that is a painful muscle knot...

SNAP.

Oh.

Back to snow shoveling.

Don't forget to watch Top Chef Allstars tonight and join me for my recap tomorrow.
