Homemade Chai Latte

A couple of years ago I didn’t like tea at all and only ever drank it when I had to, which was if I had a cold and my mum would make me drink it. However, Jeremy changed my attitude on tea completely and now I love it and drink it all the time. Peppermint or camomile are probably my favourites in the morning, but in the afternoon or evening I really enjoy chai tea or chai latte. With the cold wind that has hit Melbourne this week, I thought I should share my recipe to make chai lattes.

Of course you can just buy chai tea bags (and I won’t pretend I haven’t done that). Sometimes, however, I really enjoy making tea flavours myself. It’s so much more personal, doesn’t take a lot of time, and it’s fun too. So if you have a spare 10-15 minutes and want to make your own chai tea or chai latte, then this recipe is for you.

This recipe uses a lot of lovely, warming spices like cinnamon (my absolute favourite in anything and everything!), green cardamon pods, nutmeg, cloves, and fresh ginger. For the tea I used plain black tea bags but of course loose leaf tea works equally well. For the latte I used Bonsoy which is my favourite soy-milk from the ones I’ve tried in Australia. I’m sure any kind of soy milk (or other plant-based milk) that you use in your tea or coffee will work just fine with this recipe.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you do, please tag us on @nothangryanymore on Instagram.

Servings 4 servings


Chai Tea

  • 10 g Fresh ginger
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 10 cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 10 green cardamon pods
  • 2 black tea bags
  • 1 litre water

Optional: Latte

  • 200 ml Soy milk (or any other plant-based milk you like to put in your coffee/tea)
  • Ground cinnamon for decoration


Chai Tea

  • Fill the a medium sized pot with 1 litre of water.
  • Cut the ginger into slices and put it into the pot together with the cinnamon stick, cloves, ground nutmeg, green cardamon pods and black tea.
  • Cover the pot and heat up the water until boiling. Leave for 10 minutes, so that the flavours can develop properly.
  • Put tea through a sieve into your cup or tea pot. If there is any leftover tea, put it into a container and leave it in the fridge for up to a week. Heat it up again and enjoy!

Chai Latte

  • In a small pot, heat up the soy milk and stir regularly as it will burn otherwise. You can use a whisk and froth the soy milk up a bit as well. Once it's hot, add the milk to the tea, spoon froth on top and add a little ground cinnamon for decoration.
