I didn’t feel like doing the alphabet teas today because I didn’t really feel like having tea at all today. Then I got a craving for Starbucks and rather than spending the money, I decided to try and recreate my order at home. I have been going to the iced chai latte topped with vanilla sweet cream cold foam. Since I’ve been making the cold foam anyways, I figured it wasn’t that hard to make an iced chai latte.
My attempt actually wasn’t bad. The chai, being double spiced, wasn’t the best since it was strongly peppery and cardamom heavy until the cream mixed with it. It also wasn’t as sweet as the Starbucks drink but given I used actual chai rather than a syrup or concentrate, that’s not surprising. The cream is the real star here though because it adds sweetness and tames the overbearing spice of the tea.
