Sometimes, there is nothing like the spicy, sweet, and delicious treat of a Chai Tea Latte. Chai Tea Lattes are derived from India’s traditional Masala Chai, a tea beverage made with black tea and blended with traditional spices & herbs. Traditional Masala spices include cardamom, ginger, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and black peppercorn in addition to others. In the early 20th century British influence made it common to enjoy Masala Chai with the addition of steamed milk and sugar. This version of Masala Chai has become a popular beverage outside of South Asia, making it’s way to the U.S. Here we mostly term the beverage, Chai Tea Latte.
The Cardamom Spice TeaDrop is a flavor very reminiscent of traditional Masala Chai, though its primary spice is cardamom. We noticed that it’s SO easy to transform this delicious TeaDrop into a Masala Chai Tea Latte, we’d like to share the easy recipe with you.
