For as long as I can remember, I’ve basically ordered (depending on the season) the same drinks at Starbucks:
- Chai Tea Latte – when the weather’s chilly or downright frigid, a Chai Tea Latte warms me up, inside and out.
- Green Tea Frapp – Deliciousness waiting to be enjoyed on a warm summer day.
Oddly enough, I can’t remember the last time I ordered a coffee from Starbucks. I guess the main reason is I can have all the coffee I want at home. Recently, thanks to Twinings and a couple of great gifts from my husband, the same can easily be said of Chai Tea Lattes.
The Twinings Chai Tea is perfect. My husband loves it in a mug with just a little Whipping Cream. I’m a little more high maintenance than him, though, so that isn’t quite perfect enough for me. However, thanks to his recent gifts: the Aerolatte Deluxe Edition Milk Frother with Stand, Stainless Steel (shown in the picture at the top) and the Stainless Steel Coffee Milk Frothing Pitcher (also shown above) I can now make my own Chai Tea Lattes in my own kitchen.
Simply steep your bag of Chai Tea – make it good and strong! Use the frothing pitcher and frother to get the whole milk, 2 percent milk, half and half, or whipping cream just perfect. I add a packet of Truvia to my tea before I add the frothed milk, but not everyone has the overpowering sweet tooth that I do. After I add the frothed milk, I like to stir the milk in just a little (otherwise you’ll have a layer of cold topping lying right on the hot tea). I also love to finish it all off with little dusting of cinnamon. Trust me, this delicious drink is every bit as good (maybe better!) as Chai Tea Lattes you get at coffeehouses or restaurants. It’s cheaper to make them at home, too.
