maple chai tea

I have been enjoying the chai tea concentrate for the past month, 
yet when I saw this recipe, I still had to give it a go, 

particularly as I had some chai tea bags to use. 

Using maple syrup as the sweetener adds a lovely dimension, 

 and I changed the original recipe from all milk to equal parts water and milk.

As a total aside— I bought these owl mugs with a blog post in mind. Aren't they so cute? However, they are difficult to drink from and definitely are a case where form did not follow function, so this is the last that you'll see of the hoots.

Maple Chai Tea
adapted from foodnetwork magazine
1 cup water
1 cup milk
2 chai tea bags
¼ cup maple syrup

Bring the water and milk to a gentle simmer in a small saucepan. Take off heat, add the tea bags, cover the pot and let them steep for 10 minutes. Remove the bags and add the maple syrup. Stir until dissolved.
