How to make Chai Tea Latte

I’ve learned how to enjoy a latte, homestyle. I found how to make a chai tea latte with just a few simple steps. Really you can get creative with it, as the options are endless!

Not to long ago, I discovered how to make a chai tea latte. I tend to stick with a caffeine-free hot beverage. As I’m sure you all have heard me mention, alot! LOL! I am a tea drinker at heart. You can play around with any of your favourite herbal teas to create any kind of Latte. I decided to give this a try, at home.

Some of my staple, favorite herbal teas:

  • Peppermint: soothing for digestion and bloating; love the slight bit of sweetness mixed with a siesty kick.
  • Green Tea: great for energy and rich with antioxidants.
  • Chamomile Tea: calming effects, referred to as the “sleep” aid

The world is your oyster. Sometimes, we can add flare to a cup of coffee or tea. Flavors (or spices) are everything, you never know what you’ll discover.

Chai Tea blend traditional ingredients:

  • Cinnamon: has been around for years, one of its powerful properties are known to target metabolism
  • Star Anise: stunningly beautiful, sweet spice helps improve digestion, alleviate cramps, and reduce nausea
  • Cardamom: has a cooling effect to relieve inflammation

HOW TO MAKE CHAI LATTE

All you’ll need is a teabag, non-dairy milk of choice: Almond Breeze or Silk are good, any sweetener you desire, and I recommend using an electric milk frother. I love it! You could use a whisk instead, but the frother really makes the foam and finishes off the look of the latte.

  1. Boil a cup of water in a pot, pour it over the teabag in the mug, let it steep.
  2. While the tea is steeping, heat a cup of milk in the same pot and bring to a soft boil.
  3. Once boiling, begin frothing with your frother for about 10-20 seconds. I use the low setting. I tend to tilt it (45 degrees) to get a more frothy effect. Keep the base mostly, but not entirely submerged in the milk to allow air in.
  4. Once it’s sufficiently frothed, pour the milk into the same mug and gently add the froth on top. It really makes the latte nice.
  5. Stir in your favorite sweetener, if desired, such as honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar.
  6. Enjoy!
