This came from mangopowergirl.com. I tweaked the recipe just a little bit. I love this drink, but I love ginger. It was a little too spicy (in the way that ginger is spicy) for Zach.
Ginger Chai Latte
1 cup of water
2 inch piece of ginger root (peel and chop)
2 cups of soy milk
1 - 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
pinch of cinnamon (optional)
1-2 teaspoons loose leaf black tea (we had oolong)
Bring the water and ginger to a boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes, you want it to reduce by about half. Add the soy milk, and, if you are using them, the vanilla and cinnamon. Bring back to a boil, remove from heat, and add the tea leaves and maple syrup. Wait 3-4 minutes to give the tea a chance to steep. Strain into 2 mugs, and enjoy!
