HOW TO MAKE AN OAT MILK CHAI LATTE FROM SCRATCH

Crush Spices – Add whole dried spices to a mortar and pestle and gently crush them to make it easier to release their flavors.

Make Chai – Pour the spices into a small pot and top with water and fresh ginger slices. Set the kitchen timer for 10 minutes. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer and cover the pot for the remaining time. 

Steep Tea – Turn off the heat and add in tea. (Use tea bags or loose-leaf tea) Cover the pot with a lid and allow the tea to steep for 5-7 minutes.

Strain – Strain out tea and spices and stir in coconut sugar until fully incorporated

Warm Milk – Warm and froth oat milk. I typically heat my milk on the stovetop and use a handheld wand to froth milk. To perfectly foam milk, it should be heated to 150° F. You can use a kitchen thermometer to watch the temp. (PRO TIP: Milk with scorch quickly so it is best to watch it constantly. It heats quickly! ) You can also use an electric milk steamer if you have one.

Serving – Pour the chai tea into your serving cup. Top with milk and enjoy! Sprinkle and add a dash of ground cinnamon or brown sugar on top for garnish if desired.
