Delicious homemade chai

Make your own chai latte for late evenings

With this delicious chai latte recipe, you don’t need to go to a café. It’s actually best when you make it yourself.

And why venture out into the cold when you don't need to? Fill the kitchen with a pleasant, spicy aroma and curl up on the sofa with a warm cup. If you’re in a hurry, take the latte with you in a thermal mug so travelling to work will be both warmer and more comfortable.
