Dirty Chai Latte


Let’s make a dirty chai latte at home! This espresso drink combines coffee and tea in a warm and cozy way that is incredibly delicious. 


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 12 Chai tea bags
  • sugar to taste (start with 1 teaspoon sugar)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 12 shots espresso (or 23 ounces strong coffee or coffee concentrate)


  1. Brew tea. Pour boiling water over tea bag in a mug and let steep for 4-5 minutes, then remove tea bag.
  2. Meanwhile, steam milk and prepare espresso. (I like to brew the espresso right over the sugar to help it dissolve otherwise stir sugar into tea.
  3. Pour espresso into mug and stir to dissolve any sugar.
  4. Pour steamed milk into mug and top with a thin layer of foam.
