Chai Tea Latte for One – Recipe for DIY Chai tea made at home in the Keurig is delicious. Made with chai teabag, easy and ready in 5 minutes.
Any tea lovers out there? I love me a cup of hot tea but chai is my ultimate favorite. There’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 a small cafe but we had the real deal.
A real full-size espresso machine. Geez! I really did I fall head over heels in love with chai. Coconut Chai, Honey Vanilla Chai. Indeed the possibilities 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.
Most noteworthy reasons you should definitely make this chai:
- Uber delicious!
- Because you can put it together in 5 minutes.
- No preservatives or ingredients you can’t pronounce.
- Easily made in the Keurig, (or another coffee maker)
- Costs only a few cents to make.

Annie @Maebells says
This is a beautiful drink! I love that you figured out the individual measurements. I agree, not all chai is created equally! Some are much better than others!
Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar says
Whoa deliciousness!!! I love making a latte at home!
Shashi at RunninSrilankan says
The church I go to has a little cafe too – we fondly refer to it as “Fauxbucks” 🙂
This does sound wonderful and somehow all those spices together make me feel all warm and cozy!
Natalie @ Tastes Lovely says
I just love Chai tea lattes! I usually buy those huge cardboard containers of them at Costco. But then I have about a million cups worth of it, and it’s not made with the healthiest ingredients. This version sounds much better!

If it wouldn’t spoil my dinner, I’d be making this right now 🙂 So, I’ll be a good girl and wait until after dinner tonight. Can’t WAIT to try it!!!
I think you’ll love it my friend. You’re my chai girl. Thought of you as I was making, posting and photographing it. Wishing we could enjoy it together tonight. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful. And it looks delish. Thanks for sharing! I’m a new food blogger and found you on a link party. I’ve followed your social sites and hope we can connect on those. Can’t wait to read more of your blog. Becky
This sounds lovely! I’m an all tea/no coffee girl, and I’ve struggled for years to figure out how to make a decent cup of chai at home. Especially the milk-sugar-tea ratio part of it. So I love that this is single serving! I’ll have to experiment with brewing this in my loose tea strainer cups, since I don’t have a Keurig or anything similar.
You mention vanilla non-dairy creamer in the ingredients but not in the instructions. Do you use it?
Thanks for catching that Becky! I’ve updated the recipe. Have an amazing day!
Just now seeing this… pinning for later! Thanks!
