These cold winter mornings call for big mugs of Chai Tea Latte. But Starbucks is’nt always accessible and I’m a sucker for freshly brewed beverages. So the next best thing to do is DIY.Let’s get started!
Recipe for 2~
- 1 Cup of Milk
- 1 1/2 Cups of Water ,
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Black Tea (Orange Pekoe)
- 2 Tablespoons of Sugar (Add more if you like it sweeter!)
- A pinch of Cinnamon powder
- 1 inch piece of Ginger (grated)
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Black Pepper Powder
Quick tip: You can alternate the quantity of spices according to your preference.
Boil the water.
Add the tea, cinnamon powder, ginger, black pepper powder and sugar to it.
When the water comes to a boil, add the milk
Let it simmer on medium heat for 4-5 minutes.Then increase the heat to maximum till the tea comes to a boil.Switch it off and let it rest for a couple of minutes.
Strain the tea into the mixer.Close the lid carefully, make sure not to spill it on yourself. Switch on the mixer and turn it off after 35-40 seconds. The tea would have turned all frothy by now and your Latte is ready to be served!
Tall, Grande or Venti- what’s your pick? 😀 Until next time..
