Tea Loaf

This tea loaf is made with actual homemade brewed tea with lots of aromatic spices. I love tea, it’s definitely one of my favorite drinks. So I thought, why not put it into something else I love? So then this tea loaf happened, and it’s awesome. Even if you don’t like tea, you might like this. It’s perfect anytime of day, I love it in the morning for breakfast, or even in the afternoon with a cup of tea or coffee while I read a book. In honor of this tea loaf, I added a bonus and showed you guys how to make a real cup of chai, which is the tea in this loaf.
