Any other chai lovers out there?!
Chai was my go to before pumpkin spice was a thing and before I got on the coffee train. But now I love a big cup of chai tea latte and if I really need a caffeine kick, I add a shot or two of espresso. (Dirty Chai’s are the best!)
It’s such a versatile flavor too, you can bake with it in August when you’re just not ready for pumpkin through winter.
