We live in North Carolina and I am a foodie. I love researching and changing recipes to fit my own needs and desires. My posts will be the Stephanie way of cooking so you will probably recognize some things and others might leave you saying that isn't for me but thanks anyway. This will allow me to share something I truly love, food and preparing it in such a way that my family and friends can feel how much I care for them.

Spiced Red Chai (Roobios Herbal Tea) Latte
I had a sip of a real Chai latte when I was in college and have fantasized about them throughout the years. It was just a lovely pumpkin pie spice flavor with so many yummy memories. Silly really, I had a sip and that was it. I don't drink tea, as in black, white, green. I do drink herbal tea. I mentioned to my friend Leah that I wanted something like a Chai Tea (traditionally a black tea with spices) and she said I should try Roobios (pronounced Roy boss) Tea. Roobios is a African herbal tea. Recently I looked up how to make a Chai Latte and decided to use the basic idea and create a Red Chai Latte with the Roobios tea. My ingredients include Trader Joe's brand Roobios Tea packets, hot water, sugar, and homemade whipped cream.
Need a warm drink on this cold morning?
Ingredients for this recipe are: 1 cup hot water (I used an electric kettle), two Roobios Tea Bags (Trader Joe's), 1 tablespoon sugar (I used turbinado sugar), and 3 tablespoons of whipped
I steeped my two tea bags in hot water for three minutes, then I pressed them against the side
of the cup using a spoon to get all the good stuff out.
I added the sugar and the whipped cream.
Stir it together, and sip to your hearts content. This really is a wonderful substitute for that
sip of Chai Latte I had so many years ago. I love food memories.
