Homemade Caffeine-Free Chai Latte

Chai lattes can vary in ingredients enormously, this recipe is fairly spicy and caffeine-free.  You can add black tea to the mixture for flavour and the kick of caffeine!  In India, the further north you travel, the spicier the chai!
Consider substituting honey for the sugar, and soy or almond milk for the whole milk. 
  • 2 tsps. sugar, depending on your tastes
  • 2 cardamoms
  • 1/4 tbsp. ground ginger
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1/3 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of white pepper
  • Pinch or two of grated nutmeg
  • Small pitcher of whole milk

  • Mix the dry ingredients together, a mortar and pestle works well to break open the various flavours.
  • Add these ingredients to your cup.
  • For frothy milk use an espresso machine's steamer, or boil the milk instead.
  • When ready pour milk into the cup.
  • Add a sprinkling of cinnamon to garnish the cup
