I enjoyed drinking this a lot – this was my first week of student teaching, and it was a really rough week. Everything went well, and my kids and cooperating teacher are great, but the 12 hour days so far are killer. I made this each morning from a sample I had to take in the car with me and it was great. I didn’t get any caramel flavors, but it was definitely spicy and very good when prepared with a little honey and almond milk like traditional chai. I have a 30 minute drive to my placement each day, and this makes me think chai will need to become a very regular part of the morning routine.
