I know we are still overly obsessed (in the very best way) with our homemade pumpkin spice latte and rightfully so. A homemade pumpkin spice latte is clearly the drink that’s meant to be enjoyed multiple times (maybe even daily?) during the fall season, and beyond!

I’m not asking you to abandon the pumpkin spice latte today, rather, maybe add some variety to your coffee routine? Think of this recipe as a delicious change to keep things from getting boring (side note: homemade pumpkin spice lattes would never make it to the boring list). Trust me, friend, I know you’re going to love filling your favorite mug with warm chai spices, black tea, and perfectly frothy milk.

What is a Chai Tea Latte?

The chai tea latte originated in India. In India, the word chai translates to “tea.” So yes, calling this drink a chai tea latte is technically saying “tea tea latte” But since most of us in the Western world order “chai tea lattes” when at the coffee shop and that’s what we search for online when wanting to make a chai latte at home, we’re going with it.

Traditionally, a chai tea latte is a combination of tea and milk. The homemade chai tea latte recipe we’re going to make today, and what most of us recognize as that classic chai latte taste, is called masala chai: a blend of tea, milk, and spices (like cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger).

How To Make a Chai Tea Latte at Home

Want to skip the expensive coffee shop lattes or the grocery store concentrates and mixes and instead make a homemade chai latte? This delicious recipe is the best way to save money and enjoy the classic flavor of a chai latte at home.

You’ll first need a few tools:

And ingredients:

First, Brew the chai tea…

First, make a homemade chai tea concentrate. To do this, brew the spices and water in a small saucepan over medium heat on the stove top. Bring the water and spices to a boil. Give the water a stir and then let the ingredients simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the tea bags and natural sweetener: maple syrup (or honey). After another 5 minutes, pour the chai concentrate through a fine mesh strainer and into a bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup of chai tea concentrate to immeadiately make a latte. Store the rest of the concentrate in a jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Reheat the chai concentrate in the microwave or a saucepan when you’re ready to make a latte. 

You can buy a chai concentrate or “chai tea bags” (which infuse spices with black tea) from the store, skipping this step, but none of the concentrates from the store taste like this homemade version. They lack the flavor profile that you’ll get from this homemade chai concentrate.

Second, make a warm chai tea latte …

To make a latte, in a medium-size saucepan, bring the milk, a tablespoon of maple syrup, and a pinch of cinnamon to a slight boil. Once the sides of the milk begin to bubble, remove the pan from heat. Using an immersion blender (this is the trick to making a latte without a professional milk frother, but if you don’t have an immersion blender you may use a whisk although it doesn’t produce the same frothy milk experience like the blender), blend the milk until it’s frothy (just a few seconds).

Pour 1/2 cup of warm chai tea in a mug. Slowly add the warm, frothy milk to the tea. Sprinkle the top of the chai tea latte with an extra pinch of cinnamon, if desired.

Or, make a homemade iced chai tea latte…

If you’d prefer an iced chai latte, add 1/2 cup cold chai concentrate from the refrigerator to a glass with ice, then pour milk of choice over the top.

Since this homemade chai tea latte calls for black tea, it does contain caffeine so it’s best to enjoy this drink in the morning or early afternoon.  But no matter what time of day you choose to make and enjoy this homemade latte, I think you’ll find the flavor and taste is far superior to anything you can get at a coffee shop (since many like Starbucks uses a pre-made concentrate) or grocery store.

Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Ingredients

Chai Tea:

Chai Tea Latte:

  • 1/2 cup chai tea from the recipe above
  • 3/4 cup whole milk or dairy-free milk: coconut milk, almond milk, oat milk
  • 1 TB pure maple syrup or honey
  • pinch ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. For the chai tea: In a small saucepan, bring the water and spices to a boil. Whisk the spices in the water. Once the water reaches a boil, turn off the heat and allow the spices to steep in the water for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, turn the heat back on and add the black tea bags and maple syrup. Return to a slight boil (the goal is a hot liquid for steeping). Once boiling, turn off the heat. Allow the tea bags to steep in the water and spices for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer. Reserve 1/2 cup of chai tea to make a latte. Store the rest of the chai tea in a jar in the fridge up to two weeks.

  2. For the chai tea latte: In a medium saucepan, bring the milk, maple syrup, and pinch of cinnamon to a slight boil (the sides of the milk will begin to bubble), stirring often. Once the sides of the milk begin to bubble, remove the pan from heat. Using an immersion blender (this is the trick to a frothy homemade latte), blend the milk until it's frothy.

  3. Pour 1/2 cup of chai tea in a mug. Slowly add the warm, frothy milk to the tea. Sprinkle the top of the chai latte with an extra pinch of cinnamon, if desired.

  4. Serve warm.

    Pumpkin Chai Latte Version: You can make a pumpkin chai latte by whisking 2-3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree into the milk as it warms.

      I make my chai latte by putting the tea bag in a mug of milk (I use soy) and then I heat it in the microwave for about 90 seconds. When the milk is hot and the tea is brewed I add some sugar and some honey.

        1. says: Tas

          the word “chai” means tea and the word “latte” means milk so she is not wrong to call her beverage a chai latte. what americans call chai tea latte is an indian “chai masala”, which translates to mixed spice tea

    Round 2 is looking good….I think maybe I’ll just stop eating and exist on nothing but your lattes for the remainder of the fall? 😉

    WOW. So I’ve never had tea in my life, saw the pictures, had to try it. It was delicious! I am now converted. All these years I have been missing out. Thanks for this

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      Thank you, Ginger. You are absolutely correct. Chai means “tea”, but since so many in the U.S. know this drink as “chai tea” (thanks, Starbucks ;)), I decided to include “tea” in the title.

    I had the most wonderful chai tea latte on a recent trip to Colorado. Since then, I’ve been trying to recreate the flavor and texture at home, but with little success. That is, until I found your recipe! Thank you for sharing. I love the recipe and the photos are beautiful!

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      Nicole, What an amazing compliment… Thank you so much! I’m so happy you loved the recipe and that it recreated the same flavor and texture as the chai latte you enjoyed in Colorado. 🙂

    This is, without a doubt, the BEST chai latte recipe I’ve found(and I’ve tried probably half a dozen). The spices are super strong, the tea-to-milk ratio is perfect, and I love being able to store the extra tea base for later. This also works well iced with cold instead of steamed milk 🙂

  5. says: Sonja Rademaker

    5 stars
    Thanks so much for this recipe. I’ve tried many other chai latte recipes, authentic and not, and this is hands down, the best! Absolutely love it. Love the fact that it makes extra so you can keep the tea in the fridge and just add the milk etc on the stove as needed. Grabbed the zucchini muffin recipe while I was at it…looks fab. Now a subscriber 🙂 You rock!

  6. says: Debra Yarrington

    Okay, I’ve made this twice, and twice I’ve gotten this gelatinous goop that is really hard to strain. Am I supposed to get that? Am I supposed to strain that out? Or is that part of the chai tea? Or am I doing something completely wrong?

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      Hey Debra, Gelatinous goop doesn’t sound right. Is the gloop coming from the tea or the milk?

      If it’s the milk, the problem may be due to boiling. This issue can be solved by warming the milk and turning off the heat before it reaches a boiling point. If it’s the tea, I’m not sure what would be causing the gloop.

    2. says: Carolyn

      I got that gloop as well, I just tossed it after straining. I think it’s the maple syrup. I noticed it after I put the syrup in the pot, and it stayed that way for straining. The beverage was amazing though! One coming right up for breakfast!

      1. says: Tiffany

        Was eager to make this recipe; however, I got the gloop as well and the taste was bland. The gloop happened after adding the syrup..Maybe I’m comparing it to Starbucks.

    3. says: Sonya

      I got the goop too. It comes from too much water boiling off during the steeping. Use a little more water and cover the pot, that fixes it. 🙂

        1. says: Kristin Marr

          Sorry to hear that, Dona. I’m surprised to hear that a gloop made the entire drink inedible. A recipe that uses whole spices, or just using a chai tea bag and combining it with steamed milk, may be what you’re looking for.

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      Hey Lucy, The cardamom really creates the classic Chai Latte flavor in this drink, so it can’t be substituted. It’s a great baking spice, too, so ordering online might be a possibility.

      1. says: Carol

        You can get all the ingredients at Mountain Rose Herbs. They even make a chai tea mix, already mixed with the spices….AND a caffein free version called firefly chai. They are a GREAT company. I live in Eugene, where they call home, don’t work for them or have any affiliation, but go there almost weekly for my weekly order! Great people, friendly and so helpful!

  7. says: erica

    I’m hoping to use this recipe for a holiday food swap – if they do not wish to make it a latte, and just have a warm or hot chai tea, what part concentrate and what part water/milk to you mix? Or do you just heat up the ingredients for the “chai tea” by itself? Thanks!

  8. says: Rachel

    Hello!

    Thank you for the recipe!! I’ve just made my first batch of concentrate, however, it didn’t turn out quite as spicy as i would like it to be (there seems to be just a tiny trace of spiciness). I am not very sure if it’s due to my spices or it was meant to be this way? Also, if i would like to increase the spiciness, which spices should i add more of?

    Thank you!!!

  9. says: Kathleen

    5 stars
    Home with a cold and decided to give this a try…so delish, comforting and adding a cinnamon stick to my cup made me feel much better! To adjust the spiciness to my taste, I just added a bit more chai to the milk. Thanks for a great recipe!

  10. says: Michelle

    Hey Kristin,
    I was just wondering, and I’m clearly the only one. In the recipe you state 2 whole cloves. 2 whole cloves of what?

  11. says: Rebecca gossett

    perfecto!!! amazing stuff right here! I had no idea what chai tea was, because I’ve never been to Starbucks (I’m from buffalo, so we’re tim Hortons nuts !)
    ny husband brought me a few sample chai tea k cups and I was afraid to try them. I made your recipe instead and omggggggggg I’m and now converted from coffee to chai tea every morning 🙂 takes longer to morning ale but it’s worth it… and the k cups still haven’t been used 🙂 do u think they’d be similar?

  12. says: Beverly

    5 stars
    This is a great recipe. For those restricting sugars and don’t care for sugar substitutes (that’s me) I left the maple syrup out. The natural milk sugars still made the latte enjoyably sweet.

    AMAZING!!! I have made this three times and with coffee 2 times! delicious!! 🙂 I made it with coconut milk and a little coconut half and half. Better than with regular milk!! My mom loves it!!

  14. says: Danielle Lilley

    Just made this and it was everything I’d hoped it be. Such a comforting drink, and there’s something so satisfying wholesome about making it from scratch and knowing there’s no nasty additives in there. I have the added benefit of using my milk frother on my coffee machine too which makes this super luxurious. Thank you for the recipe, this is definitely my new treat!

  15. says: Beth

    This looks delicious! What substitutions would I make if I used a chai black tea? Would I cut out the spices that you steep in the tea? Thanks in advance!

  16. says: Beth

    Update: I tried subbing vanilla chai for the black tea and spices (except the additional cinnamon) and I also used coffee instead of water and sweetened it with liquid stevia. It is delicious! Thanks so much for this recipe!

  17. says: Lauren

    hi, im going to make this recipe tomorrow, i am not sure what black tea bags i need to buy. As im not sure tea such as earl grey or rooibus will work?

    This looks great, I made your pumpkin spice latte this morning and loved it. Say I wanted to make this a dirty chai, but keep it at the same amount as I only have 16 oz mug, how would you suggest I adjut this and how mich coffee should I add?

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      Hey CHolly, I’m so glad you enjoyed the PSL this morning! Hmmm, for the dirty chai, I would probably use 1/2 cup coffee (or two shots of espresso), and then add about the same amount of tea. Also, I would reduce the milk to compensate for the coffee addition. Of course, I haven’t tried these recommendations ;), but that’s what I’m thinking off the top of my head. Let me know how it goes!

    I just wanted to say that I stumbled across your site two days ago after searching for how to make a homemade chai latte. I made this recipe and it is delicious! I have looked over the whole site in the last two days and am inspired! I saved many food recipes as well as many of the DIYs. As I run out of my current household products I plan to make all my own! Thank you for the inspiration and amazing recipes and DIYs. I am on my way living in a natural home and eating REAL food 🙂

  20. says: Rachel

    Thank you for this! I did switch out the milk for almond milk and it turned out wonderful! Even though it’s July I always need to have a cup of tea, and I’ve always wanted to make a latte 🙂

  21. says: Carys

    Oh my days this is delightful! Wasn’t expecting it to be that good at all! I used soy milk and it’s worked really well 🙂 Also I didn’t have maple syrup but substituted with some sugar and some vanilla extract in the milk. Thank you!!

  22. says: dania

    Hiiii! This immersion blender idea to froth the milk just made my day, and changed my life!!!! Thanks 🙂
    I cut down on the maple syrup but still found it very sweet and would add extra spicy, otherwise I know I will make this again 🙂

    Just enjoying a lovely cup of this stuff. Thanks for the recipe, made it with less maple syrup (1 tsp) as I don’t have a very sweet tooth. Delicious and making me feel warm on a cold summer’s day

    OMG! This is amazing. I’m from England and LOVE the Costa ( it’s similar to Starbucks) chai tea latte and have made loads of recipes at home to recreate it but none of them taste as good as yours! Thank you for bringing this into my life 🙂

    If you wanted to make this iced you can freeze milk with some spices mixed in so as it melts it gives more flavor instead if watering it down!

    I don’t usually post reviews but I love chai tea (I am not a coffee drinker) so I am always looking for recipes to my tea favorites. This tea was awesome. The aroma alone was delightful. The tea has a perfect balance of flavors with just the right sweetness. I added less milk (I’ve used almond milk as well as coconut milk) because I love the strong tea flavor. The second best part is that I had all the ingredients in my cabinet. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I am always on the search for the perfect Chai latte, but so far I haven’t found a coffee shop that does it just right. I made your recipe but instead of milk I used half and half, and I used 1/2 teaspoon black pepper instead of allspice. It was perfect!

    Thanks so much =P

    I am a tea lover, chai tea is my favorite and I have tried many recipes for chai tea latte(all miserable, undrinkable and expensive fails)…this is the first one that has passed my apparently next to impossible standards as excellent. This is THE recipe for me, thank-you!

  31. says: Kristy

    I have bought chaI tea kcups and find them a little strong. I do add milk and sugar but the seems the strong taste stays. What can I do to make it better? Also, I am in love with the Dunkin Donuts version, so that may be my problem!!

  34. says: Eddie

    Unfortunately this turned out quite gooey for me.
    Not sure why?!

    I had 2 attempts because I desperately wanted to learn how to make a chai from scratch.
    First round with maple syrup, second round with brown sugar instead. Both were so gooey!
    Any tips?
    Really wanted to like this.

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      Hey Eddie, I’m sorry it didn’t work for you. I’m not sure what was gooey about the tea–was it the spice blend? The actual tea was gooey? If it’s the spice blend, which can sink in the tea, you can try straining the tea through a cheesecloth. If it’s the tea, I’m not sure what to recommend–I don’t know what may have happened.

    I have to watch what i eat.
    While fruit is good and supper healthy for most too much is bad for me cause fruit has way more then8grams of natural sugar&8gramms of sugar is all im allowed in a serving of anything,a whole orange would be harmfull to me,but i eat a lot of vegatables,snack on nuts and eat brown rice when i eat rice,very very seldom eat pasta,eat the baer naked cereals,drink lots of water&diet juices&eat lots of salads&i eat 1 serving or less of all.
    For desert sweet tooth graving i eat some low sugar weight watchers choclate or Low sugar cookies or gogurt. I put gogurt in the freezer&that becomes my ice cream. I watch my family eat cakes,pies, ice cream,fruit,anything that looks good to them for dessert.
    So i know my body&stay healthy that way.
    Some of the stuff thats advertised as healthy when my daughter&i see it we go “yikes,thats healthy?” Which is most items in A health food store.
    I cant go to starbucks any more,but im glad a diabetic friendly version is included&cant wait to try this.
    Everyones body is different&thats ok,thats actually kind of great&amazing imo.

    I just found this recipe and want to try it out since I love me some Chai tea lattes, but I have a couple of questions :). I watched the video and read the ingredients on the blog. You have two whole cloves listed on this page, but I didn’t see them added in the video. Is this an optional item? Secondly, on this page it says 1/2 tsp of allspice, but on the video it says 1/8 of a tsp. What amount do you recommend? Thanks!

      1. says: Heather

        I just saw your comment now! I went ahead and followed this recipe and it was delicious! Thank you for it! Trader Joe’s just came out with a pumpkin spice almond milk that I will have to try with this 🙂

    I LOOOOVE chai tea lattes and this really hit the sweet spot. Although I was missing maple syrup from my pantry, I was able to substitute it with brown sugar.

    You are aware that this is an Indian beverage, right? This is not American cuisine. Talk about your cultural appropriation, yikes.

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      Hey Lesley, This was an automatic setting assigned to ALL old recipes, not a cultural issue. We switched recipe plug-ins this past year, and instead of going through hundreds of recipes manually, we just decided to assign all as “American” as a temporary fix. It took months to even switch to an updated plug-in, and we’re working on fixing all the bugs and other issues currently. Please forgive us, and realize there’s usually more to the story and it’s best to find out that whole story before casting judgment and assuming. I have taken the time to fix this one so we don’t offend anyone in the future. A respectful comment about the label being incorrect is appreciated. Were you able to try the chai? If so, I hope you enjoyed it!

  41. I love chai so much I created a company around it! I drink it daily, hot or cold depending on the season, but if I had to make each cup individually, it wouldn’t work with my schedule. So I make a pot full in my French press to last all week long. Just put it in the fridge and heat (or not) one cup at a time, add some milk and sweetener. I use stevia for a sugar-free, rich and spicy treat whenever I need one!

  42. says: Korenna

    Oh my god this is the most Devine smelling tea I have ever smelt.

    Make sure you are using fresh spices for the best result. Spices go stale in about 6 months. Stale spices may work but you won’t get the best flavor. I love homemade chai tea. Delicious!

    hi! I just made your chai latte and it’s so delicious! The best chai latte Ive ever had is from a coffee shop in Park City and this is nearly a dead ringer! Im off to explore some of your other recipes and make something yummy 🙂 thank you!

    I just bought all the ingredients and an immersion blender! Curious about one thing, do you use maple syrup instead of honey because of the flavor? Have you ever used honey instead?

      1. says: Simone

        Since my last comment, I followed your recipe almost exactly- but replaced the maple syrup with honey. It turned out PERFECT! So delicious. Thank you!

  48. says: Kathy Gayda

    I made the chai tea and think it’s great. I even added a couple peppercorns for a little kick. But I had a production error… when I went to strain it, there was a gelatinous quality to the remains that made it impossible to fully strain. The only thing I can think is that I put the syrup in too soon. What do you think?

  49. says: Erica

    absolutely fantastic recipe! I am a big chai fan and have tried many recipes. This one by far is my favorite for many reasons. Not complicated, doesn’t take too long and its got a great combination of flavours!

    This tasted really nice. And it is very easy as well – very little active time. Tbh, I just added 3/4 cup milk and the 1/2 tea in a mug and microwaved it until it was really hot, then stirred through some honey and it was fine. Didn’t get the froth but I’m not too fussed about it. But yeah, its the best recipe for homemade chai latte I’ve found on the internet so far,

      1. says: Kaitlyn Huff

        To do the almond milk substitute you have to use homemade almond milk ‘creamer’ using a ratio of 1 cup almond to 1.5 cups water to make it thick enough for a latte.

        Tried it with my normal homemade almond milk with a ratio of 1 cup almonds to 4 cups water and it was way too watery when mixed with the concentrate and wouldn’t froth.

        Mix the concentrate with some vanilla and dates or maple syrup and it’s delish!

  51. says: Juliana

    5 stars
    yummm Love the way the cardamom flavor comes through. I subbed the milk with almond+oat and blended it in the vitamix to get it frothed. Next time I think that I’ll reduce the maple syrup a tad since the oat milk is sweet enough as is. Thanks for the great recipe.

    I don’t drink coffee so chai lattes are my drink of choice. I have had a lot of different chai lattes over the last 20+ years. I think this recipe is just okay and rather time consuming. I have tried it several times and have tried playing with the spices and spice ratio. I still much prefer the Tazo chai concentrate (the skinny version) for my at home chai lattes. I will probably continue to use this recipe when I don’t have the Tazo concentrate on hand, but I think I will also continue to make adjustments. I just find this Recipe to be lacking something.

    Tea itself is considered a health drink, especially in China, where it has been used for its medicinal benefits for roughly 4,000 years. In some other countries where the climate is predominately cold, tea is a very popular drink. Basically, there are four types of tea: the black tea, the oolong tea, the green tea, and the white tea. Each of which is said to have benefits that can help the overall well being of a person.

    This recipe is excellent! I generally dislike the taste of milk, but I’m pregnant and looking for ways to incorporate it into my diet. This is a great alternative to all the hot cocoa I’ve been consuming and will become part of my regular rotation. Thank you!
