Siobhan Muir & Chai Tea

I’ve loved Chai ever since I spent six months living in India. It is a hot, creamy drink that warms not only your body but your heart. The Indians drink it before their early morning prayers, to give them the warmth and energy while chanting. Each time I drink it, it reminds me of those quiet early mornings where I got to share a few silent moments with the divine, or just tried to wake up, lol. As a friend once told me, it’s so good to enjoy with your feet up and a good book. It’s a mini-vacation. :)

Indian Chai Tea

1 cup milk
1 cup water
4-5 cardamom pods crushed or 1/4 tsp ground
1 inch cinnamon stick broken up or 1/2 tsp ground
1/4 tsp fresh ginger minced or 1/4 tsp ground
2 tsp good quality black tea (Assam, Jasmine, Oolong)
Sugar or Stevia to taste

Crush spices up with a mortar and pestle unless using ground spices. Add spices to milk and water, and bring to a boil. Add the black tea and boil 2 to 4 minutes. Add sugar to taste and strain with mesh strainer.

Makes two cups of tea.

About Siobhan:

Siobhan Muir lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming with her husband, two daughters, and a vegetarian cat she swears is a shapeshifter, though he's never shifted when she can see him. When not writing, she spends time looking down a microscope at fossil fox teeth, pursuing her other love, paleontology. An avid reader of science fiction/fantasy, her husband gave her a paranormal romance for Christmas one year, and she was hooked. She’s been writing since childhood. Friends and family threatened to lynch her unless she published. Siobhan believes in happily ever after, redemption, and communication, which you’ll find in her paranormal romance stories.

Avalanches may bring down more than snow…

Working for the Search and Rescue team at the Cloudburst Resort in Colorado, Lily Sinclair figures she’ll do all the rescuing from now on. When hikers are caught in a spring blizzard, Lily and her partner head into the storm. Cut off from communication and facing deadly conditions, Lily fears she’ll never see her Ice Demon lover before death claims them.

Zach Snow encouraged Lily move to Cloudburst to grow and learn, but missed her every day of their months apart. His plans of moving to Colorado get pushed up when he receives her text explaining her situation, and saying goodbye. He must negotiate with the local Ice Demon clan to work in their territory to rescue Lily and the hikers before the Spring Fling blizzard kills them. But he’s running out of time.

Between the amorous hiker hitting on Zach, Lily’s self-doubts, and an avalanche bearing down on them, Zach and Lily must rediscover the love they first kindled in a Christmas ice cave, and create their own Cloudburst ice magic.
