๐Ÿต Ingredients

The equation is simple: Hot matcha green tea + a chai tea latte = comfort in a cup. Here’s what you’ll need to make one of these delightful drinks.

  • Matcha powder + hot water: Matcha is a powdered green tea from Japan loaded with health benefits. It is made by mixing green tea powder with hot water or milk. For this recipe, you’ll need hot water to dissolve the matcha.
  • Chai tea: Chai tea is an Indian tea blend traditionally made from black tea and various warming spices like cardamom, cinnamon, clove, and star anise.
  • Milk: You’ll need milk to brew the chai tea blend. You can use whole milk or your favorite dairy-free milk here. It’s excellent with oat milk! You can also use soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk, or cashew milk.
  • Recommended tools: To infuse the chai tea with milk, you’ll need a loose leaf tea infuser and a small saucepan.

๐ŸงŠ How to store

What we love most about making fun drinks from scratch is having extras to enjoy later. That said, you should probably double this recipe. It’s that good!

  1. Refrigerator storage: Store your drink in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days after cooling to room temperature. Before serving, give it a good whisk to froth everything back up.
  2. Freezer storage: An ice cube tray is the best way to freeze leftover matcha chai latte. Use the cubes to chill coffee, tea, and cocktails.
