Mocha Chai Latte

Hot spicy chai (tea) is boiled milk, spices and sugar. The most
important spice in chai is cardamom (ground up or crushed) and
after that you can take your pick from cinnamon, cloves, ginger
and black pepper. Here is a way to elevate already delicious chai
latte to chocoholic heaven.

2 tablespoons loose-leaf Asam tea
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup whole milk or 1/4 cup unsweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon cocoa
Whipped cream (optional)
Cocoa for dusting

1. Steep the tea in the water for about 5 minutes. Add the milk, spices, and cocoa and simmer over low heat about 2 or 3 minutes more.

2. Prewarm two mugs. Pour in your mocha chai, add a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa, if you like, and enjoy. Serve immediately.
