Iced Chai Latte
This Iced Chai Latte is the perfect refreshing tea latte. Simple chai tea, foamed milk & simple syrup - easy to make & delicious!
Servings 2 servings
For the simple syrup (makes 1/2 cup syrup):
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3-4 whole cloves
- 3-4 whole allspice
For the tea:
- 1 cup hot water (approximately 2 oz)
- 2 chai tea bags (or equivalent loose-leaf tea)
For the foamed milk:
- 2 cups whole milk
- 4 tablespoons simple syrup (recipe above) (substitute Maple Syrup or a few drops of Stevia, if desired)
- ice cubes
- cinnamon for topping (optional)
For the simple syrup:
Add the water, sugar, cinnamon stick, cloves and allspice to a pot over medium-high heat and cook until the sugar dissolves.
Let the mixture sit and cool to room temperature, and remove the whole spices before adding the syrup to a jar or bottle.
For the foamed milk:
Add the milk to a mason jar and shake very well to froth. Froth with a hand-held milk frother, if desired.
If you'd like a warm latte, heat the milk in a pot and froth with a hand-held frother.
Alternatively, froth the cold milk in an electric milk frother (if you have one) on the cold setting (or the hot setting if you'd like a warm latte), or simply shake the mason jar very well until everything is combined and a small layer of foam appears on the top of the milk.
Pour the milk (over ice, if desired) into each glass or mug. Add 2 tablespoons of the simple syrup to each glass or mug.
Pour 1/2 cup of the tea over the milk into each mug or glass.
Top each latte with any leftover foam and sprinkle with cinnamon (optional).
The simple syrup recipe makes 8 tablespoons of simple syrup (or 1/2 cup), so feel free to add a little extra simple syrup to each serving depending on your tastes, or substitute with maple syrup if desired.
To make this recipe low carb/keto, simply replace the simple syrup with a few drops of liquid stevia.
For a warm latte, simple skip the ice and heat the milk in a pot on the stove just to a simmer, or in the microwave, before frothing.
