Tea DIY: Iced Chai Latte

I'm a complete chai addict but once the warm weather arrives I just can't bring myself to drink it hot. I was craving that spicy, sweet flavor so I decided to try making my own iced chai latte. My boyfriend is also a chai worshiper and he gave this recipe a big thumbs up. I used Yogic Chai Original Masala Chai Pouches but you can easily substitute teaspoons of loose leaf instead. I like to use mason jars for this because you can use them for mixing and drinking.


Ingredients
5 Chai Pouches
4 cups of water
3 tablespoons of agave
2 cups of milk

  • Fill small pot with 4 cups of water and add chai pouches
  • Bring to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes
  • Turn off heat and remove pouches
  • Add agave
  • Let cool and then transfer to a glass container (mason jars work perfectly)

When you are ready to serve, pour two parts chai concentrate and one part milk into a glass filled with ice. I like to use 1 cup of chai and 1/2 a cup of milk. That's all there is to it! This recipe is enough to make about four servings. Refrigerate any leftover chai concentrate so that you can use it again later. It will stay fresh for three to four days. Do you make iced chai at home? Let me know your preferred method in the comments!
