One weird thing most people don’t know about me is that I don’t drink hot beverages. I prefer everything iced from coffee to tea. One cold, wintry day my best friend convinced me to try a hot chai tea latte after I complained that it was just too cold to drink iced coffee. I was hooked after just one glorious sip. Chai tea latte is still the only coffee-house beverage I drink hot. I recently discovered how to make my favorite iced version from “FiveBucks” just in time for summer. It’s so simple and easy you don’t need to be a pro barista to make one. You just need two simple ingredients and you can make your own chai tea latte. This beverage costs me $0.81 to make at home. I know right? That beats Fivebucks any old day!
Chai Tea Latte Ingredients:
- Chai Tea Concentrate
- Your favorite milk or milk alternative (I love soy).
How To Make a Chai Tea Latte:
- Simply put ice in your favorite glass or mug.
- Pour in the “milk”.
- Pour in your perfect amount of concentrate, stir & drink!

- Heat water in mug and let tea bag steep.
- Add ice if you want it cold.
- Pour your favorite “milk” or half and half over your tea.
