I readily admit that I’m not a huge fan of straight chai tea but I do love my chai lattes. I call them a hug in a cup. A couple years ago my hubby bought me a Breville Frother for Christmas. At first I didn’t think I would use it very often, but I have found I use it all the time. I love making my stepsons chai lattes at night while we have our family time. So when Hope & Glory’s Masala Chai showed up at my door, I couldn’t wait to make the kids lattes.
I prepped my milk up and water and set about steeping the tea and frothing the milk. In just a few minutes I had amazing looking lattes that looked like they were from a coffee house. I even sprinkled nutmeg on the top to give the lattes that added flair.
We all eagerly awaited a few moments to let the tea cool and took our first sip. These lattes were amazing! The chai was a subtle yet flavorful blend that gave you all those warming and familiar chai notes. There was a distinct cardamom and clove note in every sip that was sweetened and heightened by the frothed milk and cinnamon flavors. I also added in a quick swirl of honey that helped bring in a sweeter note to combat the spicy tones of the chai blend.
Even tho this tea tasted amazing, what I loved even more was the convenience factor of this blend. Each serving is individually wrapped so that all you have to do is prep your water and pour the tea in. No measuring, no worrying about overleafing the tea pot. Just gorgeous chai tea to enjoy. Doesn’t get easier or tastier than this!
Here’s the scoop!
