Ingredients

  • ½ cup water
  • 2 chai tea tea bags
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, add more or less to taste
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • cinnamon, for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  • Bring the water to a boil.
  • Place the chai tea bags in a mug and add the water. Let steep for 3 to 5 minutes (or according to the directions on the package of tea). I like to steep mine for at least 5 minutes for a stronger chai flavor.
  • While the tea is steeping, heat the milk in a small saucepan over low heat until hot (do not boil).
  • Squeeze out the tea bags into your mug (be careful and use a spoon - the bags will be hot). Add the maple syrup and vanilla to the tea; stir to combine.
  • Remove the milk from the heat and carefully whisk, using a quick left-to-right motion, until the milk is frothy and foamy.
  • Pour the milk into the mug with the tea. Spoon any foam that is left behind in the pan onto the top of your latte.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • An alternative method for foaming the milk is to place the hot milk in a mason jar with the lid on tightly and shake until foamy. Be sure to use oven mitts or a towel, as the jar will be hot!
  • You can use almond milk instead of whole milk to make a "skinny" or non-dairy chai latte (the flavor will be different, and it won't be as creamy).
  • Use decaf chai tea bags for a relaxing nighttime sipper!
