  • Heat water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, remove from heat and add tea bags. Let steep for 5 minutes.
  • Add in maple syrup to a coffee mug and pour in tea mixture.
  • Froth milk in milk frother or French Press. Pour frothed milk in mug with tea.
  • Optionaly, add a dash of cinnamon and top with star anise.
  • Enjoy!


  • If you want to adjust the sweetness, add less than 1 tbsp of maple syrup and adjust from there.
  • Cinnamon and star anise are optional but add a kick of sweetness and spice and are reminiscent of true Indian flavors.
  • What does a chai tea latte taste like? It's a combination of spice and sweetness. It can be compared to a very subtle pumpkin spice latte, but way better in my opinion!
