Homemade Chai Tea Latte

I love my morning coffee.  Coffee makes me happy to get out of bed in the morning.  I always make it at home with a little hazelnut creamer.  Since I stopped drinking soda, I have been making a cup of hot tea in the afternoon (for a little pick me up).  I love Starbucks as much as the next person, but it is a treat for me.  I think it’s such a rip to spend $5 on a hot drink every day. 

I was at Walmart recently, perusing the tea/coffee aisle, and found a chai tea latte concentrate.  You simply add equal parts chai concentrate and milk, and heat up.  It’s so good!  A nice, hot treat at home!  I decided to use vanilla almond milk to add a little sweetness.


I found that using 3/4 cup of each works perfectly for this size of mug.  Microwave for 2 minutes.

If only I could make myself start drinking more water! I’m so bad about that!


  1. I love a good chai tea latte! Thank you for posting this info! Maybe I can stop spending so much at Starbucks too!?!

  2. I love this idea! Amen to $5 tea being a ripoff - I agree. Going to look for this concentrate next time I'm out : )

  3. Love the chai tea latte!! It is a good afternoon pick-me-up especially when you are trying to cut down soda/coffee intake. I'm not a big water drinker either...there are so many other yummy things to drink :) Thanks for the recipe!

  4. We do the same thing, but get the Tazo Chai at Costco!
