Exactly like my local coffee shop makes it, only I didn’t use steamed milk. Plus my version is a heck of a lot cheaper!
Chai Latte for One
- 1 cup water
- 1 black tea bag
- 1/4 tsp of ginger, cardamon, ground cloves, and ground cinnamon
- Sugar to taste
- 1 cup milk
In a small saucepan, combine the water with tea and the spices. Boil gently until the tea is steeped well. Add your sugar and the milk. Simmer until heated through. Strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer. Serves 1 but multiplies well.
