Chai Tea Latte at Home for One – This recipe for DIY Chai tea made at home in the Keurig is delicious. Made easy in 5 minutes.
Any tea lovers out there? I love me a cup of hot tea but chai is my ultimate favorite. It’s something about the spices and the sweetness that sends me to the moon. I started drinking chai about 4 years ago when I was in charge of our small cafe at church. It was small but we had the real deal.
A real full size espresso machine. And man did I fall head over heels in love with chai. Coconut Chai, Honey Vanilla Chai. Oh the possiblilities are endless. I quickly discovered that not all chai are equal. I visited one of my favorite places and ordered a chai and realized that I indeed was snooty about my chai. This chai did not taste good at all. Tried it at another place and same thing.
Well, fast forward 2 years and I gave up my position at the cafe at church and that meant no more weekly chai. So here I am 2 years later and I finally found a chai to make at home that I love. Yay! Ding! Blow the bells and whistles. No more $4 concentrate. This one costs pennies to make. And has much less sugar. I’m a floating on air right now. I’ll be back in a jiffy.
So here’s the reasons you should definitely make this chai:
- uber delicious
- Mix up in 5 minutes.
- No preservatives or ingredients you can’t pronounce.
- Easily made in the Keurig, (or other coffee maker)
- Costs only a few cents to make.
