Food in Process: Chai tea latte

Chai tea latte, one of my favorite hot beverages in
 the world. And I can say for sure: chai tea latte over
hot cacao! Chai tea latte is so creamy and spicy and
totally warms you up in the winter! But I think its suitable
throughout the whole year, because you can't go wrong
with a nice cuppa chai tea right? 

As I have announced earlier, I'll be teaching you guys how
to prepare a nice cup of chai tea latte at home!
For his recipe I used 'CookingwithKarma' as base and
add a few twist of my own! Am I allowed to say that it
almost taste the same as Starbucks?

You can totally adjust your own flavor after you have
brewed your own tea. As for me, I'll probably add more
spices such as cinnamonsticks and cloves c: 

Da Recipe: For 2 cups: 250ml water, 250ml milk, 2 teabags (use black tea), 1 dried orange peel,
  2 cinnamon stick, 2 fresh ginger slices, 3 anise seeds, 5 cloves, 5 pepperballs, 1 tbs. honey,  
1 tbs. brown sugar, 1 tbs condensed milk, whipped cream, cinnamon powder, nutmeg


Da Steps: 

1. Get a nice pot/sauce pan and boil the water along the herbs, spices and the fresh ginger for about 5 minutes. 
2. Set aside the pan and add the two teabags and let it soak for about 2 hours. Remove the teabags. 
From this point your chai tea latte is ready to serve, but if you can, store your brewed goods overnight in a container in the fridge like I did.

3. In a new pan, boil the milk, sugar, honey and the condensed milk. 
4. Get your container of tea ready. Once your milk is boiled, get a sieve and strain the tea over the pan of milk. And boil until its ready.
5. Get your glasses ready! Whip the cream until stiff
6. Pour the chai tea into your favorite glasses for  about 80% and another 20% of cream on top. 
7. Finish it with cinnamon and nutmeg powder.

Good luck!

  30. That looks yummy! But ever since my first taste of chai latte I have never been a fan since. Don't know whether it was how the restaurant I went to made it or if it's just me... I just didn't like the cinnamon taste :(
