There is nothing better than a hot latte on a cold day. I love to enjoy Chai Tea at Starbucks so I decided to make this aromatic tea at home. It is simple to make and now I can enjoy it without leaving home.

  • Iced Chai Latte – If you prefer to have serve your Chai Tea Late cold, Ice Latte is always delicious.

How to Serve a Chai Tea Latte:

We love to serve Chai Tea Latte with a dusting of cinnamon on top or whipping cream. Chai Tea Latte can be served warm or ice chai tea latte depending on what you prefer.

This makes a sweet hot chai tea similar to Starbucks.  If you want a less sweet tea, reduce the amount of sugar or honey to 1 tablespoon.
