There’s nothing cozier than a warm, frothy Chai Latte on a cold Winter’s Day…
If you follow along with our adventures on Instagram, you’ll already know that just last week we were exploring Calgary, AB for the week. Not only were we adventuring all around the city, but best of all, we were enjoying the most lovely Spring-like weather, which of course, left me craving all things Spring each and every moment since.
And then (quite fittingly I might add), we came home to the biggest dump of snow we’ve seen all Winter and I found myself relishing in the coziness of it all once again.
I’m sure it’s no surprise that here in Alberta, we know how to handle a little cold + snow. Afterall, it’s our normal so much of the year. But, when temperatures drop even lower than the arctic, well, nobody wants to venture outside into that.
Those colder than cold temperatures start to creep in, the snow starts falling like it’s never going to stop, and every house in town is feeling cozier than ever. Everyone cancels any plans that might involve leaving the house and we all settle in for a few days tucked warm inside.
Fires are lit, blankets are scattered everywhere and marathons of baking, movie watching and fort building take over our days.
These cozy snow days are some of my very favourites.
And coziest of all of course, is an afternoon wrapped in a nest of blankets with a good book and a warm chai latte in hand.
So today, I’m showing y’all how to whip up my favourite go-to Winter drink…
Cozy Chai Latte
Start with a scoop of your favourite loose leaf chai tea (find mine here). Pour it into a mesh tea infuser and then pop that into a cozy mug (you can find mine here). Fill your mug with hot water (I like mine to be just nearly boiling) and then let it steep for 4-5 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour about 1/3 cup of milk into a milk frother (you can find mine here), or froth by hand with this handy little whisk. Then, carefully pour that warm, frothy milk on top, using a spoon to scoop out any bubbles left behind.
Then, curl up under a cozy blanket with a good book and drink down that coziness my friends!
