Easy to make and dare I say, better than Starbucks!
Milk teas are hands down my favourite type of tea! What would we do without a warm cuppa in the winters? This ones for the milky tea lovers. Creamy, Foamy and delicious!
Fun Fact: The word “Chai” is of Indian origin meaning tea.
Here are 2 different ways I like to make Chai, right at home! This blog post shares a hot chai recipe, followed by a chilled chai recipe!
-Chai (any kind works)
-Brown Sugar or Honey
-Milk ( substitutes include but aren’t limited to almond milk and soy milk)
- Ground Cloves
- Vanilla Extract
- Whipped Cream
- Ground Cinnamon
In a small saucepan, bring water to a simmer.
Steep tea along with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
After 5 minutes, remove the tea leaves from the saucepan Note: this part of the drink has a shelf life of 12+ months when stored properly!
Hot Chai Latte:
Bring the concentrate to a simmer in a small saucepan. Add vanilla extract and sweetner. Mix well.
Slowly add your milk, while stirring the mixture! Use whole milk for maximum froth:)
Pour into a mug. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle cinnamon!
Enjoy your yummy homemade drink.
Cold Brew Chai:
Add ice, and fill the serving glass about ⅔ full with milk.
Fill the last ⅓ of the glass with chai concentrate.
Ready to serve!
NOTE: some chai lattes are stronger than others! Everyone likes their chai different:)
