Spiced 3-ingredient iced chai latte!
Spiced and sweet milk tea or simply Chai is truly an experience.
If you are into chai lattes over ice, you have my sister to thank for this recipe!
She was asking for a simple, 3-ingredient, iced latte drink.
I recommend getting a high quality loose leaf chai mix that will have a great balance of black tea and a mix of aromatic herbs and spices.
You can also make your own chai with just a few ingredients!
To make this recipe, water is boiled first then the tea is added to steep.
Some prefer a more bitter outcome, for that, just steep the tea longer.
After the chai cools, it is poured over ice then topped with milk!
To keep it dairy-free, I like adding homemade almond milk, oat or soy milk but you can use any type of milk you like!
You can also swap out the honey for maple syrup, brown or coconut sugar.
To ensure that the sweetener is fully incorporated, it is mixed in after the tea has steeped and Is still hot.
I like making a big batch of the chai so I have it ready to go whenever I am in the mood.
You can keep it in a glass jug with an air-tight lid in your refrigerator for up to one week!
Since the base of chai is black tea, this drink contains a good amount of caffeine.
For an extra boost and flavor, I love adding a shot of espresso to make this into a dirty iced chai latte!
