How To Make A Chai Latte

RECIPE

Chai Latte

The Master Blender’s Chai blending philosophy is to use only high-quality fresh herbs and spices with strong, aromatic character and to carefully balance the competitive notes of cardamom against the mouth-numbing cloves and strong cinnamon. This tea’s natural digestive and carminative properties make it an ideal component for a rich, spicy after-dinner cocktail.

Steep using equal parts hot water and warm milk for a classic preparation. Or, try as a Chai tea latte – steep the tea in hot milk and add sugar. Alternatively, a tasty variation of this Chai blend is to serve with some condensed milk, thin slices of almond, and some saffron flowers. Adding some fragrant red rose petals and a spot of organic honey makes for a wonderfully cozy experience.
