So on Friday morning, I shared chai mixtures that I have been working on since moving to Ecuador this fall. My fellow English teachers were kind enough to sample the drinks and give me feedback. What I learned was that they all enjoyed the SuperMaxi (store-bought) chai tea bags more than my homemade drinks. Joke on me–spending all that time trying to figure out ingredients and measurements when I just needed to figure out how many tea bags to add to make it strong enough, lol. La vida es una cosa loca a veces.

So here is my recipe for Chai del Pueblo, chai that most people will like.

Chai del Pueblo

13 tea bags of Horniman’s Chai (number of bags will differ depending on Chai brand)

3 cups of water

1 cup of milk (whatever kind you like)

4 teaspoons of brown sugar

1-3 teaspoons of white sugar

Bring water and tea bags to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and then add milk and sugar. Cook for 5-10 minute. Turn of fire, but keep pot with lid on stove top for at least 20 minutes. Serve warm in your favorite mug/tea cup.
