2 cups hot water
4 black tea bags
4 cups unsweetened almond milk, microwaved for 5 minutes
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon teaspoon ground star anise
Steep the tea bags in the hot water for 5 minutes.
In your high speed blender, combine the steeped tea, almond milk, honey, maple syrup and spices. Blend on high speed for 2 minutes until the latte is combined and the blender has created a lot of foam. Taste and add additional spices or sweetener of choice if desired.
Serve warm or over ice.
This latte will keep in an airtight container for 1 week. To serve the refrigerated latte, reheat and blend again in the blender to create foam. Or serve cold over ice. Be sure to shake the latte mix before serving, the spices tend to settle to the bottom.
I like my chai tea latte with a medium amount of spice. But feel free to add in another 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon of each spice if you like yours with a stronger amount of spice.
