Have you heard of Bulletproof coffee yet, like me, you are highly sensitive to caffeine? Look no further: homemade Bulletproof Chai Tea sweetened with Melt® is destined to become a part of your morning routine. Before Chai Tea was commercialized in the US, I was making my own – Chai Tea couldn’t be easier or cheaper to make and allows you control over the caffeine content. I am highly sensitive to caffeine, yet this recipe is surprisingly energizing. (Black tea is considered an essential component of the recipe as a synergistic compound.) Makes 2 quarts of Bulletproof Chai Tea.
