DIY: Dirty Chai Tea Latte

Well.  It's official.  Summer is over.  Today is the first teacher report day for the 2017-2018 school year.  While I do still work full time (and then some) during the summer running the tennis program, my hours are somewhat flexible and I'm able to do some work from home.  Needless to say, I'm going to need a little extra zip of caffine today.  The homemade Chai Tea Latte is the perfect little treat for a day like today -- think espresso latte with chai tea yumminess.

I use my stovetop espresso maker (which I really love!) and the same method as the homemade vanilla and pumpkin lattes.

Dirty Chai Tea Latte


  • 1 bag chai tea
  • 1/3 cup water, boiling
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2-3 shots espresso
  • 1 t vanilla
  • sugar, to taste
  • cinnamon
  • Bring water to a boil and add chai tea bag.  Allow to steep for a couple minutes.
  • Brew espresso.
  • While espresso is brewing pour milk and vanilla into a jar.  Seal tightly and shake until milk doubles in volume.  Heat in microwave for 1 minute, or until hot.
  • Spoon sugar into large coffee mug.  Pour espresso and chai tea into mug.  Stir to dissolve sugar.  Top with heated milk, foam, and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Enjoy!
Happy Sipping!
