Orange Chai Tea Recipe – Perfect for the Holidays

The Holiday season is all about making memories with friends and family. As the snow is falling here in Southern Ontario, we are unpacking the snowsuits, toboggans and finding warm drinks to enjoy with friends.  I am a BIG fan of delicious coffees and hot cocoas but sometimes I’m looking for something else; something to set my taste buds alight. 

One tea we love is this Orange Chai Tea which has that lovely subtle cardamom, combined with an orange hint to tease the taste buds. 

I do hope you enjoy the recipe and if you’re looking for more non-alcoholic drinks please do visit my Drinks section.
