Easy RumChata Vanilla Chai Tea Recipe For Fall

 

It is starting to feel a little bit like fall here in Northwest Iowa. I love the fall but I really hate to see the summer fly by so fast.  I am getting into the spirit of fall this year  by collaborating with other bloggers and creating a series of fall cocktails.  This week I have made an easy RumChata Vanilla Chai Tea.  It was pretty yummy!

I called in some help for these posts!  Peggy will be helping me create these awesome cocktail recipes for the next 5 weeks.  I hope you enjoy what we come up with.  If not…at least we are having fun.  Haha!  If you love camping she has a great blog all about their camping adventures in their cute T@B teardrop camper.  You can check it out at tabcamp.blogspot.com

Step 1:

Brew the tea.  Boil the water and add 2 tea bags.  Let steep.  We liked the drink better with strong tea.  It tastes a little watery if the tea isn’t strong enough.  I don’t drink much tea so I don’t have a kettle.  We used a regular pot to boil and brew.

Step 2:

A drink is always better with a bit of “rimming”.  This one calls for a cinnamon/sugar combo rim.  This is more sugar than cinnamon.  We liked the ratio of 2 tablespoons sugar to 1/4 tsp of cinnamon but the best way is to taste.  Some people may love more cinnamon than others.  Mix the cinnamon and sugar and place in a shallow dish.

Pour a small amount of RumChata in a separate shallow bowl.  

Dip the top of your cup into the RumChata.

Then into the cinnamon/sugar mixture.

We rolled it around a bit to make sure the rim was completely covered.

Step 3:

Carefully pour the tea into the cup.  We transferred it from the pot to a pyrex measuring cup with a pour spout.  This way the cinnamon/sugar mixture will remain untouched.

Step 4:

Add the RumChata to the tea.  It is fun to watch it swirl into the cup.
