Ok, so I'm addicted to Tazo's liquid concentrate chai latte mix. It tastes great, and you just mix it with equal parts milk, simple. I had been buying them at Starbucks, but for a few weeks now I have been buying the carton of concentrate to make them at home. Now that it's so easy to have one, I'm having at least 3 iced chai lattes a day. At least I'm getting my calcium... but I'm going through these cartons like crazy. The price isn't awful if you consider that I can make about 6 for the price of one of the same size at Starbucks, but at $3.99 each (Target, Whole Foods) it seems to me like there must be a cheaper way to enjoy a chai latte without too much work. The problem I see is coming up with something just as tasty after rounding up all of the spices. I don't want to waste $20+ on a bunch of spices and then not get the results that I want. I want a concentrate I can keep in the fridge and use just like the Tazo brand mix.
So if anyone has any thoughts, ideas, recommendations, have made some before, etc. please let me know! I would love to see your suggestions.
Here's what I'm considering:
Tazo Chai Tea bags, 20 bags per box - make it very concentrated and mix with milk?
Keep buying the Tazo chai mix - maybe it's the best I can do?
