Spicy Vanilla Chai Latte

This is a simple yet amazing recipe, I mean... who doesn't like Chai? hehe. Well... you don't have to run to Starbucks anymore you can make this insanely delicious drink in a matter of minutes, although there're a few ingredients that you must have at hand. 

Spicy Vanilla Chai Mix

10 teaspoons of black tea leaves
1 vanilla bean seeds scraped (or vanilla extract)
3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 star anise seeds
1 teaspoon ginger powder
a few black peppercorns (you can skip this, but I really love the spice they add)
1/8 ground ground clove

Store all these ingredients in an air tight container to keep at hand.



Spicy Vanilla Chai Latte

I like to use my french coffee press to make this recipe, it just makes everything so easy.

3 teaspoons Spicy Vanilla Chai Mix
3/4 cup boiled water
1/4 milk



Put the Chai Mix in the French press carafe, add the boiling water and let steep for 3-4 minutes. Heat the milk and froth it if desired. Pour strained chai tea into milk and sweeten to taste.
I topped my with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground nutmeg... mmmm!
Enjoy!
