What I love about this drink is the way the Caro adds depth and richness to the spicy chai flavours. Our favourite chai-style tea is called "Bengal Spice", by Celestial Seasonings. The other tip to make this drink your own is to try a mix of different nut milks — soy milk tends to be rich, almond is lighter and usually sweeter, oat milk is very light. Ani likes to combine them to suit her taste.
- Place tea bag and boiling water into a small saucepan. Allow to steep for at least 3 minutes to get the flavour out.
- Add Caro and stevia and stir to dissolve.
- Add soy milk and vanilla essence then heat (hot but not scalding).
- Pour into cups and sprinkle with nutmeg to serve.
