Autumn is, by far, my favorite season. The crisp breeze, the morning light, the changing foliage, the sweaters, the smell of burning wood in the air, apples apples apples. Did I mention the sweaters? It also means the return of my favorite warm beverage which takes me all the way through winter. The easiest and tastiest spiced cider made with just two things: 2 cups of apple cider and 1 chai tea bag. Just heat the cider until it comes to a simmer then add the tea bag and let steep for 2 minutes before removing. I prefer the tea bag over liquid chai because I find most of them are too sweet. The chai provides the perfect amount of spiciness both in terms of taste and aroma. My normal morning beverage is a vanilla latte but starting in the fall it is replaced with this drink. I think you’ll fall in love with it, too. P.S. If you want to make this an adult beverage, add a shot of brandy or whiskey…ooh baby.
