We didn’t name it Yummy Chai for nothing! This DIY chai tea latte will rock your world in four easy steps. Here’s what you need:

– 3 tsp Yummy Chai nourishtea
– 12 oz of boiling hot water
– 2 tsp of brown sugar
– 1/2 cup of milk
– ground cinnamon (optional)

1. Steep

Measure 3 tsp of nourishtea Yummy Chai into an infuser. Steep in 12 oz of water for about 5 minutes.

2. Sweet

Remove the infuser and add brown sugar (or honey) to the tea while it is still very hot.

3. Foam

Make your own foam in the microwave, all you need is milk, a glass jar with a lid, and a microwave.

Fill the jar no more than halfway to allow room for the foam. Put the lid on and shake for 30 seconds. The milk will become frothy and double in size. Take off the lid and microwave for 30 seconds, and the foam will rise to the top of the jar.

Using a spoon, hold back the foam at the top and pour the milk evenly divided into two cups.

4. Top

Top the warm milk with the tea slowly, then scoop the remaining foam from the jar on top of the lattes. You can sprinkle, nutmeg or cinnamon over the foam.
