Chai Latte

Ingredients

  • 2 cinnamon sticks, broken into pieces
  • 2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 6 green cardamom pods, cracked
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons loose-leaf black tea
  • 1/2 cup sweetener, such as brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup (optional)
  • 3 cups cold whole milk, coconut milk, or other non-dairy milk

Instructions

  • Place the cinnamon, peppercorns, cloves, and cardamom in a small saucepan over medium heat and toast, shaking the pan occasionally, until fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Remove from the heat and add the loose-leaf tea or tea bags. Cover and steep for 10 minutes.
  • While the tea is still warm, add the sweetener and stir until combined or dissolved.
  • Strain the tea through a fine-mesh strainer into a pitcher or teapot. Discard the spices and tea leaves. Store in the refrigerator for future use, or keep it warm while you froth the milk.
  • For whole milk, froth the milk by shaking it in a jar or by whisking it vigorously over medium-high heat. For non-dairy milks, use an immersion blender to froth before heating.
  • Heat the frothed milk in a small saucepan over low heat until warm.
