Chai Latte Oatmeal

Since realizing I am a foodie, I have enjoyed reading about the latest trends, and what is predicted for the future. One of the trends predicted for 2014 is to use tea flavors in recipes. I decided to put my new knowledge to the test a few days ago, and put chai tea into a recipe. I decided to try and make a chai latte oatmeal using my Culinary Circle chai tea bags I usually drink to wake me up in the morning.

I was a little scared to try it, as this was some major experimentation, but somehow it worked, and actually tasted just like the chai lattes I enjoy sometimes. I added some marshmallows to make it a little more fun, and I look forward to trying this again with other tea flavors. The possibilities are endless!
