Making an iced chai tea latte at home is easier than you may think. Mix together a blend of spices with iced tea, pour in your milk of choice, and done! A homemade iced chai tea latte. We love making these as an alternative to coffee (or add in some coffee and you have a dirty chai). Pour chai tea lattes over ice for a refreshing drink now that temperatures are warming up! The spices give a warm “kick” while the black iced tea gives an earthy flavor. And the creamy milk brings all of the flavors together. It’s hard not to love an iced chai tea latte, right?!
A secret ingredient
We add a touch of turmeric in our iced chai tea latte recipe for a couple of reasons. One, it combines so well with the other spices without altering the flavor (but the more you use, the more you’ll taste it). Two, turmeric is a nutrient powerhouse because it’s loaded with antioxidants. We use it in this recipe, in our coffee, soups, smoothies, and sprinkled over veggies. Just be careful with amounts – you can really taste it the more you use in a recipe!
You can use whichever you prefer!
It’s fairly simple – we pour 8 cups of water into a container. Let 10 tea bags steep in the water for 24-36 hours while in the refrigerator. Remove the bags and now you have homemade tea!
Simply add a shot of espresso to your tea before mixing in the spiced milk.
Whichever you prefer. Honey and maple syrup mix well because they’re more liquid. Regular white sugar and brown sugar are good too, but they may not dissolve as well in this iced beverage!
A shaker bottle will work well to mix the spices and milk together. If you don’t have one, a good ol’ bowl and whisk will do the trick too!
Your favorite! Any milk (cow’s, soy, almond, cashew, coconut, etc.) will work.
This iced chai tea latte is a refreshing way to switch up your normal morning coffee routine or as an afternoon pick-me-up. You can keep it premixed in the refrigerator and simply pour over ice whenever you want a glass! If you prefer hot drinks, all you need to do is substitute hot tea for iced. We love snacking on these recipes while enjoying a glass of this chai tea:
- Blueberry Almond Baked Oats
- Chewy Molasses Oatmeal Cookies
- Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies
- Pecan Cinnamon Rolls with Pecan Cream Cheese Frosting
- The Best Banana Nut Bread
