Homemade Chai Tea Latte

If you are lactose intolerant or vegan, substitute cow's milk with almond or soy. For frothy, foamed milk, consider purchasing a Nespresso Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother ($99), which will cut costs on store-bought lattes.

  1. 1 cinnamon stick
    5 whole green cardamom pods
    5 whole cloves
    5 whole black peppercorns
    2 1-inch pieces ginger root, sliced

    1/2 cup milk
    Honey (or sugar) to taste

  1. In a small pot, combine cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, peppercorns, ginger, and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 5-10 minutes, depending on preferred strength.
  2. Remove from heat, add tea, and steep for 3-5 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and return liquid to the pot. Discard solids.
  3. Over a low heat, stir in honey and milk and cook until heated through. Pour into mugs, and top with frothed milk and cinnamon, if desired.
