Whew, it is hot! I love teas, but it is just too hot to enjoy a cup of hot tea. This cold version is so flavorful, it makes the heat bearable. At least for a while. I picked up this new ginger flavored chai tea last weekend at Big Lot's sale. I have a hard time shopping there without buying a new tea...
The spice mix is great, and this is a super low cal version of a summer cooler. Even better, it is made with green tea, which is so good for us. If you aren't watching calories, then by all means, up the cream. This tastes great just as it is though. It tastes like a high carb, high calorie treat. No need for all that frozen yogurt RR uses in her recipe. The spices are really the star.
1 cup prepared chai tea (I used Celestial Seasonings Vanilla Ginger Green Tea Chai)
1 mini-moo or 1 Tablespoon cream or milk
sweetener to taste
1 cup ice
Brew tea and cool to room temperature. In a bullet blender, whip remaining ingredients. Adjust sweetener and enjoy.
