DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

How to Make Chai Tea

There is nothing like a cool spring rain or a winter blizzard to inspire you to make a hot drink. There is always good old herbal tea, or even the caffeinated kind. And who could forget hot cocoa?

But the king of them all is Chai–a mixture of either black or Rooibos tea and various other spices, a dollop of honey and lots of cream. It's easy to make and serve to your entire family or group of friends. You'll just need some common kitchen utensils and a few ingredients.

Materials and Ingredients

You will need a half gallon glass pitcher or mason jar, a long handled stirring spoon or skinny scraper, a cloth tea bag (unless your tea comes in tea bags), a kettle, a small pan, and some coffee mugs.

You will also need 3-4 tbsp of a Chai tea mix. My favorite is the Republic of Tea red full leaf Chai. It uses Rooibos tea as a base, which is naturally caffeine-free. Other important ingredients are about a quarter cup of honey, a pint of heavy cream, half and half or whole milk, and water. I prefer to use raw honey and raw cream or milk.

Step 1: Preparation

Fill a kettle with a quart and a half of water and set to boil. In the mean time, add the tea to the tea bag, and add the honey to the pitcher. Add the cream or milk to a small pan and set on the stove at low heat.

Step 2: Steeping

When the water comes to a boil, add it to the pitcher. Stir in the honey until it dissolves. Lower the tea bag into the water and allow it to steep for ten to fifteen minutes. Keep the cream warming up on the stove in the mean time. The goal is to bring the cream's temperature up from refrigerated to slightly warm so it doesn't cool down the drink.

Step 3: Serving and Enjoying

Once the tea has finished steeping, take out the tea bag and add the cream. Gently stir the tea. Pour hot into the coffee mugs and enjoy.
