I'm a huge lover of Chai Tea Lattes, they are the perfect treat if you don't feel like drinking coffee, but still want something sweet. Since Starbucks and other coffee shops can be expensive, I wanted to try and make my own Chai Latte, and I found an awesome recipe that is way better than ones from coffee shops!
What you'll need:
-2-3 Chai tea flavored tea bags. I use the Bigelow Vanilla Chai Tea (Teavanna has amazing loose leaf Chai if you can get it! If not just choose one from your local grocery store).
-1 to 1.5 cups of water (1 cup for 2 tea bags, 1.5 cups for 3)
-1 tsp of cinnamon
-2 cups of your choice of milk (I use rice milk)
-Sugar your taste (I use raw cane sugar)
-Vanilla Coffee creamer of your choice to taste
This recipe is for 2 servings. The extra tea bag/water is use depending on how large you coffee mugs are.
-Use your coffee maker to brew your tea. Place your tea bags and tsp of cinnamon in a coffee filter. Add the 1 to 1.5 cups of water and press brew/start on your coffee pot. You can brew them on the stop top but this method is super easy and only takes a minute or two.
-In a sauce pan heat up the 2 cups of milk. Add in your sugar to taste and stir. If you are using liquid coffee creamer, add this in as well to taste. If you are using a powdered kind, wait until the milk is hot and then add it in to taste. I use a tbsp or two or each.
-When the tea is done brewing and the milk is hot, pour them both into a mug and it's done! You can add whipped topping or extra cinnamon on top of you want.
-If you want an iced chai latte, put this into the fridge to cool down and then pour over ice!
This recipe is super delicious and I definitely recommend trying it if you love Chai lattes!
