Recipe 3: Chai Tea Latté

Can I make you all a tad jealous by telling you that I arrived en France this morning? I will be spending the next three weeks in the nation of wine, baguette, macarons, goat's cheese, tarte tartin, and much more. While I will be eating and baking lots of yummy thingies, I will be hiking, mountainbiking, and playing with my little 15-month-old niece. Life does not get much better than this.
Even though the place I am currently in is amazing, the weather could certainly be better. To keep warm, I decided to enjoy a little soy chai tea latté. I chose soy, because this week I found out I am slightly lactose intolerant. I will definitely keep using dairy in my baking, but I will try to consume as little of it on a daily bases. You could of course substitute the soy milk with any other sort of milk.
What do you need?
  • Milk, non-dairyvegeta
  • Chai tea
  • Hot water
  • Sweetener (optional)
  • Milk foamer (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)
How to make it?
  1. Boil a tiny bit of water, fill about quarter of your cup with it, and put the tea bag in for about 5 minutes - depending on how strong you like your tea. In the meanwhile, heat up your milk. If you do not have a foamer, use about 2/3 of the cup, if you can, use about half.
  2. Now is the time to add your sweetener (if you did not use sweetened milk, or if you want to use more) and foam up your milk!
  3. Add the milk to the tea, sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top. You do not need to add cinnamon to the milk itself, as chai tea already contains many different spices. Depending on the sort you use, it usually also contains cinnamon already. I used Celestial Indian Spice, which is my all-time favorite chai tea.
Voilà! Enjoy, mes amours.
