Cookies and chai

by Jessie K on December 18, 2012

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJune made her first batch of cookies this weekend.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWith absolutely no help from dad whatsoever. Nope. No help from dad.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANothing pairs better with chocolate chip cookies on a cold December day than homemade chai.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy friend Chin of Soothing Herbals Apothecary makes THE BEST, freshest chai blend I have ever tasted.  If there’s a chai lover in your life, this tea blend would make a great, last minute gift.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShe uses whole herbs and spices…no powder here.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATo make, simmer the spices in water for 20 minutes. Strain and add dark brown sugar or honey (I’m partial to the dark brown sugar). To serve, pour in a mug and stir in equal parts heated milk; it’s Christmas in a mug.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALets check on those cookies.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALookin’ good, Jake, I mean, June.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADoes December get any better than this?


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe spent the rest of the afternoon (okay, it was really more like 20 minutes) listening to Christmas music and coloring. And consuming lots and lots of cookies and chai.

You can purchase Chin’s chai blend here.

Jake and June are the best presents you have ever received Jessie but I suspect you already know that.

Merry Christmas!!
