Homemade Dirty Chai Latte

Chai tea ingredients

Nothing brings a smile to my face faster than a sip from a dirty chai latte! However, I’m not a big fan of the high cost or shoddy attempts some coffee shops make… I’ve literally see some pour it out of a box! The horror!

I finally started experimenting with making my own dirty chai latte. It took a few tries, however I finally tweaked it to amazing.

Ingredients for Basic Chai Tea:

I found all of the ingredients at Amazon.

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon powdered vanilla bean
  • 1 1/2 cups black tea powder (TEAki Hut Instant Black Tea Powder)

Dirty Chai LatteThis is your basic chai tea recipe. It can be made in many ways. Mixing a teaspoon or two in hot water is the easiest way to make it, however it packs a powerful punch.

I make mine in my Mr. Coffee!

I use 3 teaspoons of chai mix for an eight cup pot. I also add two tablespoons of espresso to the filter.

After brewing, add your favorite sweetener and creamer. Done!

Add these Ingredients to Make Chai Latte MIX:

If you’d like to make the recipe fully out of powdered ingredients, continue with these.

  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 cup powdered nondairy creamer
  • 1 cup French vanilla-flavored powdered nondairy creamer

How About these Options:

Chocolate Chai Mix: Add 1 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa along with dry milk powder to the latte blend above. Follow serving directions above.

Chai Shake: Blend 1/8 cup Chai Tea Mix, 1/2 cup milk, and 2 cups vanilla ice cream in a blender.

White Chocolate Chai: Add 1 teaspoon of finely chopped premium white chocolate to your cup of Chai Tea Mix.

  1. It does look delicious! 😀
    Sadly, I can’t take the spices – as I found out when trying one teensy teaspoon of my daughter’s chai tea one time! I just started coughing – asthma reflex. My poor kid thought she’d killed me! 😀

    1. Oh noooo! 😳
      I actually didn’t even think of that aspect! Wow. Glad she didn’t kill ya 😉
      I mentioned that I’ve made it a bit strong and had to pound water to quench the heart burn 🔥 That taught me a lesson.
      Don’t do cinnamon challenges!

Have any awesome thoughts to share?
