If you enjoy a hot cup of chai tea in the cooler months, brew it and ice it for summer. Here’s a recipe from the Republic Of Tea.

To add another dimension of flavor, the recipe uses maple syrup as the sweetener (that’s real maple syrup, not pancake syrup, which is artificially flavored corn syrup).

If you’re not not keen on maple, use honey, half as much agave*, another sweetener, or no sweetener at all.
