Chai Tea Latte - Starbucks Copycat- Recipe
The leaves are starting to change color, the air is getting crisp and the kiddos are back in school. All of these cues are pointing to one conclusion: My Starbucks Chai Tea Latte budget is about to go through the roof! Luckily I've been toiling away in the kitchen stirring large pots of chai brews, concocting the perfect Starbucks fake. After tossing the vats of homemade chai down the drain and deciding that an already made chai tea bags are just as tasty and much easier to make than mixing a thousand different spices together, I've perfected the quintessential fall drink. I prefer vanilla soy creamer in my latte because I like the flavor better, but you could use regular cream and add a drop or two of vanilla extract. Just remember that the soy creamer is sweetened so you may want to add more maple syrup if you use regular cream or milk.
- 1/2 cup vanilla soy creamer, heated in the microwave or stove top until almost boiling
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 tsp pure maple syrup
- 1 chai tea bag (Tazo Organic preferred)
