Homemade CHAI Tea Latte Recipe
This recipe is the best homemade Chai Latte recipe you will find. You can either make it on the stove top, but I prefer to use my coffee machine.
I've been trying for months testing out Chai Latte recipes and I believe I have come up with one of the best tasting Chai Tea Latte's you can make at home. The best thing is that it is unsweetened so you can add sugar to suit your taste. I always find that many commercial Chai Latte's are very sweet as many are based on syrups or mixes which have been pre sweetened. This is a great alternative which I think you will love.

How to Make Chai Tea:
Please note there are many ways to make Chai Tea and this is one which I prefer. Listed below are other tips and variations you can try.
Step 1: Using a coffee/spice grinder or mortar and pestle, grind up spices.
Step 2: Add tea to spice mixture. Fill tea pot or coffee plunger with boiling water and add spice mixture. Use 3/4 cup boiling water and 4 teaspoons of tea/spice mixture per serve. Let stand 3-4 minutes. Heat milk using stove top, microwave or even better use a coffee machine so you can produce frothy milk. This gives a cafe style chai tea latte. Add heated milk and sweeten to taste.
Tips and Hints for making Chai Tea:
- If you don't have a grinder, you can use a mortar and pestle, however you should grind the ingredients seperately to avoid mix becoming too fine.
- This recipe is unsweetened so you can add sugar to suit your taste.
