Java Chai Latte

Java Chai Latte #Recipe #homemade #latte

Cold morning, rain is pouring but beautiful Spring scenery when you look through the window. Even those gray days that could be rather depressing seemed just little bit brighter. That was my weekend, quite depressing but somewhat very beautiful and productive.

Cup of Java Chai Latte seemed appropriate for the relaxing afternoon break that was really needed. I decided to do Spring cleaning and with three kids that could be a win cleaning or total flop. Well, for me it was a win, because I asked kids to help me...of course hubby is a cleaning sargent, so he is always there to go over with the white glove. I'm just kidding! But yea, he is that kind of man that is not afraid of little house work. Lucky or not?! Ha! I think I am pretty lucky! 

Weather finally cleared up, and the aroma of Java Chai was still in my mind, so it was one great replacment of my morning coffee! I know *gasp*! I skipped real cup of Joe for this...yes, people it is that good! 
I got to mention that Season with Spice "Java Chai Tea Blend" already have healthy amount espresso so you have your work cut out. Nothing to mix yourself, because delicious blend is already in this jar.

Even though I wasn't asked to do any reviews, I felt that my lovely readers should know that I am in love with their products and I am looking forward to share more recipes here. 
But for today I am posting two ways how to make delicious latte. For those that do own latte/espresso machine and for you that do not! Although, they are just weee bit different in texture because latte machine makes automatic froth, I think the second version is just as delicious. Flavors are there and you are not losing absolutely anything, except perhaps thicker froth. 
The aroma is just amazing...very soothing and comforting!

  2. Let it simmer on low temperature until hot, about 3-5 minutes, but do not let it boiling. Turn off the heat, cover and let it steam up under the lid for next 2-3 minutes. 
  3. While you are waiting for Chai/milk tea to develop a flavor, in another pot add remaining milk and with hand frother, froth milk until foam is developed.
  4. Strain the milk tea/Chai through small fine tea strainer, and in the cup. 
  5. Add frothed milk, stir and enjoy!

NOTE*
For those upcoming hot days, you can add ice-cubes, and enjoy Java Chai Ice Latte!

  1. Omg how funny...I was just thinking about some sort of tea latte. I'm a little cold here right now and I wanted some sort of tea or something to sip on. And as I was daydreaming about it, I came here to your blog the very second. Ain't that an amazing coincidence?! All I have right now that's anything remotely close to it is some instant nut/grain tea thingy. Yours looks way appealing. I'd rather have some of that!

It's wonderful online spice shop and I like that they share all kinds of recipes using their spices... I like your cute props too, Sandra. The black board is so cafe-like! Thumbs up!
