Chai is the Hindi word for tea, despite the fact that most people in the English-speaking world think of it as a "flavour" of tea. After the British colonisation of India, it wasn't too long before Indians made their own version of a sweet and milky black tea, with the addition of spices.

Easy Apple Cider:
Add the apples, cinnamon sticks, all spice, and cloves to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and cover with water, leaving about an inch of space at the top so that it doesn’t boil over. Let it simmer until the apples have softened entirely and everything becomes fragrant, about 15-20 minutes.
Once done, remove from heat and carefully scoop spoonfuls (using a large cooking spoon) of the mixture and place it into a strainer over a large bowl, squeezing the apples to remove the excess juice. Continue this until all of apple cider is strained into the bowl. Discard the apples, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan on medium-high heat, add the milk and bring to a boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove the milk from heat and add tea bags and let them steep for 5-6 minutes.
Once fully steeped, remove tea bags and whisk in 1 tablespoon chai tea spice mix, ½ cup apple cider, vanilla, and Agave until well combined.
To serve, pour apple-chai mixture in prepared mugs and top with CocoWhip, if preferred and sprinkle with additional chai spice mix.
Sip up and enjoy!
