If there’s one addiction I have, it’s with chai latte. This wonderfully delicious and aromatic tea is made with many fragrant spices and ingredients. It’s a super flavourful beverage and although most people probably drink it steaming hot, I enjoy this lovely concoction both hot and cold – hot for the long winter days and cold for the scorching, humid summery days.
Chai tea can be a combination of ingredients, depending on the maker. It can contain a mixture of fragrant cinnamon, spicy ginger, aromatic cardamom, ambrosial vanilla, sweet honey, pungent cloves, licorice-like star anise, flavourful nutmeg and black pepper. Of course, the type of tea would be a black tea.
While I am not a huge supporter of Starbucks, the type I love to buy is made by Tazo, which I believe is a company owned by Starbucks. It’s made of a sweet syrup that you mix with milk in a ratio of 1:1. If you know of an alternative and where I can get it, feel free to leave me suggestions in the comment section. 🙂
And remember, chai means tea so saying chai tea latte is redundant!
