Once the cold weather started to set in I desperately wanted tea. Not only tea, but autumn spices as well. What makes a cold Minnesota day better? A hot chai tea latte from scratch.
Next measure a rounded tablespoon of loose black tea into a small bowl. You can use an actual measure spoon, or just a normal tablespoon like me. Do the same with: 2 teaspoons of honey, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground cloves, 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg. Then add one black peppercorn. Once your kettle water has boiled, pour it into a saucepan and add your spices, heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Next comes the 10 oz. of milk. You will want to steam the milk with your espresso machine if you have one-- otherwise if you don't (or if you're in a hurry) heat it in the microwave at high heat 30 seconds at a time for around 1:30.
Once that is all finished, you are done! And you can enjoy your latte!Here is the website which I found the recipe at:http://www.copycatrecipeguide.com/How_to_Make_a_Starbucks_Chai_Tea_Latte
