Chai Tea
Serves 8
While the coffee shop variety of chai tea is certainly not healthy (way too much sugar, loads of full-fat milk), this homemade chai recipe is. It yields eight servings, meaning each cup has just over a teaspoon of sugar. Plus, it’s brewed with many nutrient-packed herbs and spices.
