Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Over medium-high heat, combine the water, tea bags, and spices in a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for five minutes. Remove from heat and stir in maple syrup if using. 

  2. Carefully pour hot water through a strainerdividing it equally into two mugs so that just the tea concentrate remains. In the same saucepan, bring heat milk to scald (just before boiling point) then remove from heat.

  3. Transfer milk to your milk frother and pump up and down a few times until your milk is light a frothy. Tap the frother a few times on the counter to let the milk settle a bit. 

  4. Top off each mug with milk. Sprinkle with cinnamon, garnish with a couple star anise (optional) and enjoy immediately!

Recipe Notes

Black tea is traditional for Chai Lattes, however, I use Rooibos tea for an herbal, caffeine-free option.

If you don't have a manual milk frother, a French Press works well.
