How to make: Chai Tea Latte.

Monday, 14 April 2014
Hello everyone! Today I have been trying to be a dab hand in the kitchen. I don't know whether thats either a Yorkshire term or a general British term. "Dab hand" means expert, just to clear that one up. I thought I would start with showing you all how I make a Chai Tea Latte because everyone loves tea but with extra spices and flavour it's 10 times better!
So lets begin! Here is what you will need.

Ingredients: 1 tsp ground ginger | 1 vanilla pod | 3-4 cardamon pods | 2-3 cloves | 1 cinnamon stick | 1 tsp ground nutmeg | 1 tsp ground allspice | 2-3 tbsp brown sugar | 1 cup milk | 2 tbsp black tea | 1-2 cups water. Equiptment: Pan | Mug | French Press | Milk Frother.

First start by adding all your spices into a pan along with the milk. Set the hob to a low-medium heat and allow the ingredients to simmer for around 3-5 minutes. Make sure you stir it well otherwise any spices clumped to the bottom will burn and stick to the pan.

Next boil your water and add it to the black tea in the french press. This is also best when left to brew for around 3-5 minutes and then you can lower the plunge on your press.

Now this next step went wrong for me but I still think you should give it a go. Once your milk and spices have mixed nicely run the frother through the mixture to make it light and to give a little extra froth to add to the top. (My frother broke) If you don't have a frother they are very cheap to buy but similarly you can use a whisk, however this will take a very long time. Once your milk and tea is done you can start to pour your tea into your mug. Then followed by the milk and there you have your very own Chai Tea Latte!

Mine minus the froth but still tastes delicious and will also leave a really good smell throughout your home!
Let me know if you try your own Chai Tea Latte and I will be back again later in the week with some more baking posts.
