I'm usually a coffee drinker, coffee lover, coffee addict. But when it's freezing cold outside I suddenly develop a craving for a a nice cup of chai. I had my first "real" homemade chai about 8 years ago in Sofia, Bulgaria. I thought the girl who prepared it for me would never be finished - adding more and more spices and ingredients. But then it was the best tea I had ever tried.
Looking for a chai recipe on the internet I stumbled upon this very cool illustrated Chai syrup recipe by comic artist/author/illustrator Lucy Knisley. Nice, ha? (Check out some more of her work, it's worth it!)
