Chai lattes are delicious and my husband hadn’t met one that tasted quite like those at Starbucks – until now! I think I finally mastered the concentrate recipe to be as sweet and strong as the Tazo Tea concentrate used at Starbucks (we’ve been buying for $1 each at Target w/ sale and coupon the past few weeks!!!) but nothing beats practically free and homemade. This is super duper simple! I do suggest going all out and using a shaker with some ice to mix the concentrate and milk. You’ll get that amazon froth on top and you’ll be ensured that everything is mixed.
  • Chai Concentrate:
  • Water – 3 cups
  • Chai Tea Bags – 6 each
  • Sugar – 1/3 cup
  • Chai Latte:
  • Chai Concentrate – 1/2 cup
  • Milk – 1/2 cup
  • Ice – 1/2 cup (ish)
  1. Heat up your water (however you like, we use an electric kettle or just boil it on the stove) then steep your tea bags for 10 minutes
  2. Squeeze tea bags out before tossing them, then dissolve sugar; chill
  3. For latte, add chai concentrate, milk, and ice to a shaker – then shake for a good 10 seconds and add everything (including ice) to your favorite glass!
I prefer this drink “Shaken, not stirred” because it’ll get you that froth on the top that you get at coffee shops[br][br]You can add or take away sugar onthe concentrate – if it seems like a lot, it’s because it’s a “concentrate” and if you buy it in the store, that has a lot of sugar as well which gets dilluted with the milk[br][br]I keep the concentrate in a leftover, flip-top coffee creamer bottle in our fridge. This makes it easy to pour and reuses something I would have otherwise recycled (upcycle is the best!)[br][br]You can use whatever form of “milk” that you like – we usually have coconut milk or almond milk in the house and I think those would pair nicely, as well!
