Coconut Chai Latte.

Coconut chai latte, 1 mug

1 large mug oat or soy milk
1 portion/bag of black tea (I used PG Tips, but any black tea is fine)
3 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
3 pods of cardamom
a few pinches of dried ground ginger
1 tsp good quality coconut oil
ca 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
Pour milk in a mug to measure and then transfer all of it but about 1 dl to a pot (if you have a milk frother, otherwise transfer all of it). Add the tea bag and the spices, and heat until almost boiling. Lower temperature and let simmer for a few minutes, then turn off the heat and let it stand for a few minutes more.

Meanwhile, if you have a milk frother, froth the 1 dl of cold milk (if not you can skip this step). Put it to one side.

Strain the tea and pour into a mug. Add the coconut oil and the maple syrup (if using). Stir, and as the final step add the cold milk.
