Weather forecast says we could expect more snow in next few days. So, this is an excuse to make a large cup of salted caramel Chai Tea Latte (not that we need an excuse).
The recipe is simple: cook tea with spices, warm milk brown sugar and caramel sauce. Combine both liquids and serve with whipped cream. At first glance it may seem that there are lot of spices used, but they are not so strong tasting. If you’re sensitive to powdered spices, you may strain the liquid in the end.
Chai Tea Latte, with addition of salted caramel sauce, can both warm you and comfort you on a frosty winter day or night.
Chai Tea Latte
- 1 cup water
- 2 black tea bags
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
- 1/4 tsp ground allspice
- a pinch of ground nutmeg
- a pinch of ground black pepper
- 1 cup milk
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp caramel sauce or regular caramel sauce
- whipped cream or topping
- salted caramel sauce
- a dash of ground nutmeg
Boil 1 cup water. Add tea bags and spices and let steep for about 5 minutes. Strain or filter the tea (optional).
Cook milk with brown sugar and caramel sauce until sugar and sauce dissolve.
Combine two liquids. Pour into a cup and serve with whipped cream. Sprinkle with some ground nutmeg and drizzle with salted caramel sauce.
It sounds wonderful and I’m not even a tea drinker but I’m tempted!
Try it, maybe you’ll convert 🙂
One of our most favorite treats. To give it a little kick mid-day, sometimes I’ll add a shot of espresso. Honey or vanilla coffee creamer is also good in place of the granulated sugar and goats milk. A GREAT night time drink before bedtime.
Yep, this is definitely calling my name! That caramel and the spices, brilliant!
