Can’t decide between chai tea and a latte? Choose both! Masala chai is a spiced black tea from India that made its way to the States and is now common in most coffee shops.
The spices typically used in this tea are clove, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper. A dirty chai simply mixes masala chai with a shot of espresso and milk.
This drink offers the warm, spicy flavors of the chai tea combined with the smooth, sweet flavors of a latte—not to mention a little extra caffeine.
You can also use chai tea concentrate instead of brewing the chai tea bag. Simply replace the brewed chai tea with 4 ounces chai tea concentrate.
