The Perfect Chai Latte
Ready to chai out the perfect Chai Latte? This recipe is our go-to at the brew bar and is absolutely delicious. Seriously, we love it a latte!
For an iced latte, pour the tea concentrate over ice and add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of milk--no need to heat and froth! We recommend using a plant-based milk to let the spices shine through, but if you prefer dairy milk and still want a good punch of spice, you can use a little extra loose leaf tea when brewing since the milk protein, casein, will cut the spice more.
