  • In a medium pot combine water with all the spices. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add tea bags, cover again, and remove from heat completely allowing the tea to steep for 5 minutes. 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. 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. 
  • Top off each mug with milk. Sprinkle with cinnamon, garnish with a couple star anise (optional) and enjoy immediately!


Serving and Storing - Serve your latte immediately with an oatmeal date scone or vegan blueberry muffin. To serve, pour the chai concentrate into the bottom of a mug. Top with frothed milk and sprinkle with ground cinnamon and star anise.
Make in Advance - If you know you will be drinking a lot of chai, double or triple the batch for the chai tea concentrate. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
