Chai Tea Latte at Home


I was so happy to find this recipe.  A chai tea latte is something I would order more often at coffee shops, but when you don’t drink caffeine, there really isn’t ever the option.  At home, I can simply make this using decaf black tea.  And, my newest obsession and Amazon purchase, my hand held frother, takes it to another level.

Here is how you make the chai spices.  

Mix together:

1 T ground nutmeg

1 T ground ginger

1 T ground cloves

2 T ground cardamon

2 T ground cinnamon

Store in an airtight container.

To make one serving of chai tea latte:

Brew one serving of strong black tea.  In a small glass pitcher or measuring cup add 3 ounces of half and half, 1/2 tsp of chai spice mix and a splash of vanilla.  Heat  for 45 seconds in microwave, then froth.  Add 2 squeezes of honey to hot tea, stir and then top with the spiced froth.

This recipe is so simple, delicious, and a great alternative to coffee.  It also proves that anyone can be a barista, right at home.

Happy Monday!

    1. I read your blog post - yikes! You deserve this and a few glasses of wine after that experience.

  2. That's the only thing I order at coffee places. I don't drink coffee so I love chai latte. Thanks for the recipe, I truly appreciate it.

  3. Gosh, that tea latte looks so good.

    1. And I can make it decaf when I make it at home. No decaf tea at most coffee shops.


Thanks for reading!
