Expert Tips

  • You can prepare this chai tea up to 24 hours ahead of time. After making, just cover and refrigerate. To serve, simply reheat.
  • If you like a chai tea that’s on the sweeter side, increase the amount of honey.
  • Prefer your chai tea iced? Simply refrigerate the mixture until cold. For a blended chai tea, combine the refrigerated mixture with 1 cup of ice in a blender. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth.
  • This chai tea recipe calls for spices you will likely have in your spice drawer. Play around with flavor by adding more unique spices such as cardamom, peeled gingerroot, peppercorns and cloves.
