I'm a sucker for Chai tea. My problem is that I don't like to pay for it. If I'm going to spend $5 on a drink at a coffee shop, I have to choose something with espresso, because I can make chai tea at home. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about espresso.
There are several ways to make your own chai, and people can get a little snobby about their methods and preferences. Some are simple, satisfied with tea bags from the grocery store. There are connoisseurs who keep a slew of spices around and mix it up fresh each time. Then there's boxed chai. I used to really like the boxed chai because of its ease. No boiling or waiting, just mix and go. What I didn't like about the boxed stuff is that I always felt guilty drinking it because it contains an enormous amount of sugar. I try not to overdo the sugar.
