When I discovered this drink as a teenager it quickly became a favorite of mine. I have many good memories of sitting around with my siblings and friends, drinking this hot chai tea latte and playing games during the cold and dismal winters we have here in the Northeast. Another plus for me with this drink is that is has some caffeine but not enough to keep me from sleeping at night, making it a great afternoon pick me up!

French vanilla creamer can also be used in the milk mixture. Add creamer to taste.
