|Luuuurve chai lattes.|
The hypothesis: that making my own chai latte will be cheaper, healthier and tastier than purchasing one from a coffeeshop.
The experiment: trying out three different recipes for chai concentrate to see if the hypothesis is true.
The test subjects:
Chai concentrate recipe A: a basic top-secret recipe from a coffee shop owner I happen to know. Includes peppercorns, fresh ginger, cardamom whole pods, cinnamon sticks, and tea bags (obviously).
Chai concentrate recipe B: includes all of the above + star anise pods.
Chai concentrate recipe C: includes all of the above + orange zest, nutmeg.
I will update you on my progress. Today, I picked up peppercorns, star anise, cardamom pods and cinnamon sticks from the Bulk Barn ($3.24 total!) and tomorrow I'll get fresh ginger and some vanilla almond milk to begin my delicious taste tests.
Never before have I found science so mouth-watering.
