What do you do when its too hot but you are craving some masala chai. Make Iced Masala Chai! And then since you are a blogger, you amp it up with turmeric milk to make Turmeric Iced Tea ;).
This is a turmeric and spiced version inspired by a Thai Iced tea. Turmeric is a warming and drying spice. Too much tastes bitter and also dries one up. Use to taste preference.
Bring your tea to a boil with the masala chai spices and fresh ginger. I use my Chai Masala Spice from my book. Cool and strain. Prepare your turmeric coconut milk, Or use plain coconut milk (let me know what you loved!). Pour tea in a glass full of ice cubes. Pour some turmeric milk. Serve immediately. This tea also works great hot. Add the turmeric coconut milk in the hot tea.
