Spicy Yogi Chai

Even though winter isn’t officially here, it sure feels like it!  When the weather is cold there’s nothing better than I hot cup of tea to warm up.  This spicy warming masala chai perfect for chilly days.  I like my chai really spicy but if you want a more mild cup of tea just scale back on the pepper and cloves.
