The Perfect Chai Recipe


  • 1 cup water

  • 1 black tea bag or 1 tablespoon loose black tea leaves

  • 1/2 cup milk (you can use any type of milk: whole milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc.)

  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or sugar (adjust to taste)

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

  • A pinch of black pepper

  • Optional: a few slices of fresh ginger for added flavor

  • Optional: whipped cream or cinnamon for garnish


  1. Prepare the Tea:

  • In a saucepan, combine water and spices (ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, ground cardamom, and a pinch of black pepper). Add fresh ginger slices if you prefer a stronger ginger flavor.

  • Bring the mixture to a boil and let it simmer for a few minutes to infuse the water with spices.

  1. Add the Tea:

  • Remove the saucepan from heat and add the black tea bag or loose tea leaves. Let it steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea.

  1. Add Sweetener and Milk:

  • Remove the tea bag or strain the tea if using loose leaves.

  • Stir in honey or sugar, adjusting to your preferred level of sweetness.

  • Add milk to the spiced tea mixture. You can adjust the amount of milk based on how creamy you want your chai latte.

  1. Heat and Froth:

  • Return the saucepan to the heat and warm the chai latte mixture over medium heat until it's hot but not boiling. Be careful not to scorch the milk.

  • If you have a milk frother, you can froth the milk for a creamier texture. If not, you can simply whisk the mixture gently while heating.

  1. Serve:

  • Pour the chai latte into mugs.

  • Optional: Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra indulgent touch.

  • Enjoy your homemade chai latte!

Feel free to adjust the spices, sweetness, and milk ratio to suit your taste preferences. It's a versatile recipe that you can customize to create your perfect chai latte.
