Moneysaver: Chai Tea at Home

While nothing can replace the conversation and pampering feeling of treating yourself to a drink at a coffee shop, your wallet can feel a pinch in a hurry when you indulge too much (not to mention your waist in your jeans from all of the Vitamin D milk and fancy syrups.)  Below you will find a recipe for an easy spiced tea that makes you the creator, leaving the kind of milk (I substitute skim) and amount of spice in your hands! 


In large saucepan, combine tea, orange peel and spices. Add sweetened condensed milk; mix well. Over medium heat, slowly stir in water. Heat thoroughly but do not boil. Refrigerate any leftovers.

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened instant tea

  • 1 tsp. finely grated orange peel

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves

  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 6 1/3 cups water
