Easy Tea-less Chai

Easy Tea-less Chai


This is an easy home alternative for coffee-shop chai tea lattes. I leave out the tea because most of the flavor comes from the spices and not having to brew the tea makes it much, much simpler. If you're looking for traditional Indian Chai, or for a caffeinated pick-me-up, this is not it. This single serve recipe leaves a lot to taste, as everyone prefers something a little different.

Serves 1

  • 1 1⁄2 cups milk

  • 1 -2teaspoon honey

  • 1pinch ground cinnamon

  • 1pinch ground cloves

  • 1pinch ground ginger

  • 1pinch ground nutmeg

  • 1pinch ground cardamom

  • 1dash ground black pepper


  • 01

    Put honey in mug, microwave for about 10 seconds.

  • 02

    Add spices to honey. I did not include amounts in recipe as for a single serving, this is little more than a "pinch" or "sprinkle" of each, you will probably have to play around with the recipe a few times before you know exactly what proportions you prefer. Stir spices in with honey until blended together smoothly.

    Add milk to honey and spice, microwave about 2-3 minutes, or until hot. Stir well, if it's lost temperature from stirring, microwave briefly to reheat. Enjoy!
