Chai Almond Latte

Every weekend, my husband, 3yo, and I head over to the big shopping center and buy groceries for the week. After a couple of hours, we're just beat. Today, I had to battle a huge crowd around the kiwi bin at the T&T supermarket. 6 kiwis for $1. It was just madness. That store is usually super busy on weekends. I had to squeeze my arm in without looking to get my kiwis. Madness, right?! The good news is that I did score 18 kiwis for just $3 :)

All the exhaustion from our grocery trip made the afternoon coffee break even more rewarding. Today, we had tea. We have so much tea in our house, you would not believe your eyes. We're probably what you would call tea hoarders. We have enough to last us years but if we saw others that we really liked, we'd probably buy more :)

One of our favorite chai teas is sold in Victoria at Silk Road in Chinatown. It's so fragrant and strong. It's perfect for making lattes with! Here is one of my favorite ways of making chai latte and it's super easy. As an added bonus, it's also vegan :)
