Chai Latte.... Oh Momma!!!!

So those of you who know me... know that I am a  huge Starbucks fan!!! Times are tough and although I still indulge in the occasional Latte... I have to be $$ wise.  So, I learned how to make one of my favorite drinks.  ***Disclaimer... I still L O V E Starbucks and continue to spend my husbands hard earned money there... !!! :)
Here is what you will need...

4 Chai Tea Bags (I used Tazo Tea)
3 Cups Water
Almond Milk, Soy Milk, Reg Milk, Skim Milk... this will work with any of these.
Bring water to boil... Turn Heat off and add the Tea Bags... let it Seep for at least a couple of hours. I let it sit over night.... to make it nice and strong.

In a large glass fill 3/4 of the way with ice.
Add about 3/4-1 cup Chai Tea
Add Sugar, Simple Syrup, or Sugar Substitute to Taste.
Fill to top with Milk
Stir to combine well.

Really Quick... to make simple syrup simply combine equal parts sugar and water... cook on med-high heat until sugar is dissolved.
