Homemade Chai Lattes
I don't own a steamer or espresso machine so to add a little foam I tested out a technique I saw at David's Tea. I poured milk into a chawan (tea bowl) and whisked it as though I were making matcha. It wasn't quite the real thing but it was foamy and helped to cool the tea off to the perfect drinking temperature. Just a teaspoon of sugar and some cinnamon on top finished it off nicely. You won't often see me sweeten my tea but with chai it can help the flavors pop. I was really happy with the way these turned out. Chai and its warming spices are like comfort food for me in the winter and a big mug of it hit the spot. Do you make tea lattes at home? I'd love to hear about your technique!
