Homemade Chai (Spiced Tea) Latte


Homemade Chai (Spiced Tea) Latte

I have been craving for hot chai latte. This beverage is heaven-sent! I absolutely love the aroma of spices in my cup of milk tea. After searching high and low for a recipe, I realize that I don't have much confidence in measuring the different spices - cloves, cardamom, peppercorn, ginger. So, I use a ready-to-use chai teabag to make my long-awaited chai latte. Hehe!

Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients: 
(Makes 1 cup)

1 chai teabag (I used Madagascar Chai by Pyramid Tea Bags from Gloria Jean's Coffees outlet)
1 cup full cream milk (you can use non-dairy milk as well)
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon molasses sugar

Madagascar Chai - a fine balance of clove and cardamom
with a mulled sweet spiced ginger finish.

How to:

1. In a saucepan, combine milk and water. Heat the mixture over low heat until it begins to simmer gently. Don't overboil.



2. Break open the chai teabag and pour the loose tea blend into the pan. Whisk the mixture and allow it to simmer for about 2 minutes or so. Make sure the mixture doesn't boil. 

3. Off the heat and let sit for about 5-6 minutes. Add in vanilla and molasses sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves.

4. Strain the tea leaves before serving.

The tea leaves are strained with this mesh strainer.

This special tea glass comes with a
removable, built-in mesh strainer.

Time to enjoy my cuppa hot chai latte!
