Homemade Chai Tea Latte

by radoo_ngnh2u

Nothing beats a homemade chai tea latte. I’m always so disappointed when I order one at a coffee shop and they use a chai powder and it is way too sweet and doesn’t give me the boost of caffeine that I paid for. So, I stopped ordering them and set out to make my own version at home that is quick, easy, and delicious. Is it authentic? No. But it’s delicious and gets the job done so I’ll call it a day.
