Ritual Chai Tea Latte


Not many things make my heart pitter-patter like chai tea does. Yes, that may seem an extreme thing to say, but have you had a perfect mug of chai? Today, I'm going to walk you through the steps to do just that, using Ritual Chai, my absolute favorite tea.
We'll be using the stovetop method to get the most out of the spices and make a tea concentrate, before turning it into a chai latte. 

You will need: 

  • 1 small saucepan
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp. Ritual Chai, heaping
  • 1.5 tbsp. honey (or preferred sweetener) 
  • 1.5 cups milk (dairy or plant based)
  • Blender (optional, but makes the best frothy chai)
  • This recipe will make 2 large servings.

First, make your chai concentrate: Add water and loose leaf ritual chai to your pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 6-8 minutes. Strain it into the blender using a fine mesh sieve. Press out any liquid left in the leaves and compost them.

Steam your milk: Rinse your saucepan and add the milk and honey. Heat until it begins to steam. Add the milk into the blender with tea concentrate and blend for 10-20 seconds. (Alternatively, you can use a steamer or frother)

Grab your chosen mug/s and fill them with the chai. This is how I make my morning chai, every single day, and hope you love it as much as I do. Enjoy! - Holly Hawk

Tips:

• This recipe can easily be multiplied.

• If you have a steamer, or frother - you can skip the blender and add steamed/frothed milk to hot chai concentrate. If you don't have any of this equipment, that's okay! Simply stir together your tea & milk. 

• If you have chai leftover, you can store it in the fridge for up to 7 days. Enjoy iced or reheat! 

• You can play around with milk and honey ratios, as well as cook time, depending on your preferences. I like to keep notes until I find the perfect ratio. I prefer most teas on the stronger side, especially chai!
