Looking for a perfectly simple drink recipe that is full of chai spice and sweet vanilla? Make this Vanilla Chai Tea Latte at home - enjoy! 

Prep time: 5 minutes
Steeping time: 4 to 12 hours (See quick steep method below)
Yield: 4 servings


For the iced chai:

For the honey syrup:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
The honey syrup and prepared chai will both keep for at least a week in the refrigerator.
  1. Steep the tea: Combine the tea and water in a quart-sized jar.
    Cover and let steep at room temperature for at least 4 hours or up to 12 hours. The flavors of the tea and chai spices will strengthen the longer it is allowed to infuse. 
  2. Make the honey syrup: Combine the honey and water in a small glass container. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir to dissolve the honey. Allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to a week. 
  3. Strain the tea: Once the tea has infused to your taste, strain the tea. Make your latte now, or cover and refrigerate for up to a week.
  4. Create your iced chai latte: Place a few ice cubes in a glass. Pour 1 to 3 teaspoons of honey syrup over the ice cubes. Follow with a cup of chai tea poured over the ice to fill your glass. Be sure to leave room to top with as much milk as you prefer. 
  5. Stir to combine and taste: Add more honey syrup or milk, if desired.


If you want to speed up the steeping process to enjoy your latte sooner, bring 2 cups of water to 212° (just below boil), remove from heat, and add the tea. Steep for 10 to 20 minutes. Strain out the tea and add the remaining 2 cups of water. Cool to room temperature, then transfer to the fridge to cool completely.

Chai Green Tea Latte

There's just something soothing about how a spiced chai latte tastes on a cold day...or any day if you're like meI love chai spices - the cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves...and all chai teas for that matter. But green tea blended with chai spices in this Green Chai Tea Latte recipe is just delicious with the earthiness of green tea contrasted by the chai spices in a frothy cup. It works.

Samurai Spirit Maté with Maharaja Oolong Chai was the exact flavor I was looking for. Will order again.

Maharaja Oolong Chai with Samurai Spirit Maté

Excellent flavor when I blended the two.



Refreshing tea

It tastes exactly like Maharaja chai from Teavana. I am glad I gave it a try.

Delicious tea! We were huge Teavana fans, so it was very sad when the stores closed. Now, we are able to buy our favorite flavors again!
