For years and years I have been spending waaay too much money on chai lattes. I used to buy the pre-made Starbucks Chai concentrate to save on my chai latte obsession (pro tip- just mix the store-bought concentrate w/ milk and it makes the same exact chai that Starbucks serves), but even that has so much artificial flavoring and is way too sugary. So, I decided to try making one completely homemade (& vegan) recently with my roommates...
It is so simple. All you need is any brand of chai tea bags (I used Black Tea's Double Spice Chai), milk, water, and sugar. I chose coconut milk & coconut sugar to make the drink vegan.
For two servings, I boiled 1/2 cup of water and put 2 chai tea bags in to make the chai concentrate. Mix your desired amount of sugar into the hot concentrate so it dissolves-- I usually do ~3 tablespoons for two servings to make it medium-sweet. Then, all you do is mix in 1 cup of heated milk if you want the chai latte to be hot (if you want it cold, then put the milk & concentrate over ice). VIOLA!!!
Lastly, you can sprinkle some cinnamon on the top if you're feelin' extra fancy :) Enjoy! XO
