Quick Chai Latte

While the weather is cold I’m constantly craving warm drinks. There’s only so much tea you can drink before you start getting creative with the basics. I usually have dozens of bagged and loose leaf teas on hand and plenty of herbs and spices stored in old jars. I use lavender in tea frequently and started storing it in an old spice jar so it's easily accessible (as you can see in the photo the jar says Bay Leaves but it's really lavender). This little treat is great when you need an afternoon pick me up. The combo of two black teas gives you a serious boost.
