A chai latte is a delicious mix of healthy spices, with a touch of sweetness, and a small amount of caffeine. Chai is the Hindi word for “tea” and it’s a type of black tea. I’m a big coffee and tea drinker and enjoy the complex taste of chai. It’s an excellent midday pick-me-up and can be made hot to warm you up in the winter or iced to cool you down in the summer.
As it’s currently summer, I’ve mainly been sticking to the iced version. While the drink contains a variety of spices and it may seem easier to grab an expensive one at Starbucks, I can teach you how to make a chai latte at home that’s simple, tastier, and more sustainable.
