Chai Tea Latte with Jan Hagels

What’s better on a cool winter night than something hot to drink? My version of a chai tea latte is perfect for such evenings!! I like to make my own rather than use a mix because I can make it just the way I want it. Commercial mixes are just too sweet for my taste and it’s hard to find caffeine free versions as well . . . I just can’t do caffeine at night anymore and still get a good nights sleep. It only takes a few minutes to make this and I can use decaf tea bags so I don’t lose any sleep and skim milk to save on calories!! This recipe makes 4 regular coffee cup size servings or two large mugs. I cut the recipe in half to make myself one large latte and it works out just fine as you can see from the picture.

I use a battery operated frother but you can simply use a wire whisk to achieve the same results and I prefer fresh grated nutmeg to ground nutmeg in a can. If your not as picky as I just use the ground variety in a can. A nutmeg grater is pictured with the frother in case you don’t know what one looks like.


Battery Operated Frother & Nutmeg Grater

2 C. water
4 tea bags (I use decaf)
2 C. milk (I use skim)
2 T. honey or more if you like it sweeter
1/2 t. ground ginger
1/8 t. ground nutmeg
1/4 t. ground cinnamon

1. Heat the water to boiling in a two-quart saucepan. Add the tea bags, reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove tea bags.
2. Stir the remaining ingredients into the tea. Heat to boiling.


Milk & Spices Added to Tea

3. Stir with a wire whisk or electric frother to foam the milk. Pour into mugs. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with additional mutmeg.
