Dirty Chai Spice Latte
Dirty Chai is a delicious blend of coffee, black tea, milk and spices with just enough added sweetness for balance. In our version, we add the special sweetness of local honey. You too can make the perfect drink by adding a spoonful or two of our Chai Spice Honey to your latte. Furthermore, by making your latte at home, you have more control of the sweetness added to your beverage.
- 1 tea bag (or 1-2 tablespoons loose) black tea
- ½ cup water
- ⅓ cup milk
- ½ cup strong coffee
- 2-3 teaspoons Absolutely Delightful Chai Spice Infused Honey
- 1 drop vanilla extract
- 1 cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)
Start by preparing the coffee using your favorite method.
While the coffee is brewing, prepare the tea by pouring boiling water over the tea bag or loose tea. Allow the tea to steep for 5-10 minutes.
While the tea is steeping, heat the milk in a pot on the stove, or microwave until hot. Froth the milk by beating with a small whisk or frother.
Return to your tea. Remove the tea bag/tea container from tea. If you are using loose tea, strain the tea into your cup. Stir the Absolutely Delightful Chai Spiced Honey into the tea until the honey is completely dissolved. Next, add coffee and a drop of vanilla to the chai and stir. Lastly, pour the milk into the tea/coffee/honey mixture, stirring gently with the cinnamon stick to garnish your dirty chai latte! Take a sip and enjoy your wonderful creation!
