Monday

 Lovely day, lovely day
Alyson is getting ready to embark on an incredible journey
 and in preparation had a little home sale yesterday.
 I brought homemade chai, which I discovered is great with coconut milk because I don't like to use sugar and Alyson made amazing lemon bars.
Her apartment is super cozy, which made it such an inviting and comfortable way to shop!

Ashley - what is your chai recipe like? I've been working on the perfect chai and I'm curious, yours looks amazing!

Mmm I immediately want to make a cake and drink chai (also very good with rice milk :))

Alexa- I am still figuring a solid recipe, but realized the first time I made it I don't think I used the right ratio of spices to water. But here is what I did this last time:

Fill large pot with distilled water, bring to simmer, add in two tea bags full of assam tea, two bay leaves, 6 roughly sliced pieces of ginger, three cinnamon sticks, a few shakes of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cloves, 12 green cardamon seeds (pinched to release flavor), two anise flowers, and a tablespoon each black and red peppercorn (like it kind of spicy)

The trick I found was adding coconut milk which seemed to make the tea taste more full bodied
