Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 black tea bags
  • 2 Tbsps Agave syrup (See Notes)
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 3 cups Ice, crushed or cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond milk (You can use your fave plant-based milk)

Optional Topping:

  • Coconut Whipped Cream
  • sprinkle of Chai Spice

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan on medium-high heat, add the water and bring to a boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove the water from heat and add the tea bags and let them steep for 5-6 minutes.
  • Once fully steeped, remove tea bags and whisk in 1 Tbsp chai tea spices and Agave until well combined. Let cool for 10 minutes or so.
  • To serve, fill ice into 16-ounce prepared glass(es) and pour in the milk (evenly divided), followed by the chai tea mixture. Stir completely until the mixture become a light color and top with coconut whipped cream, if desired.
  • Sip and enjoy!

Notes

  • SWEETENER: You can always use maple syrup, Vegan honey, or organic brown sugar as a substitute for Agave. For vegan honey—-Bee Free Honee, click link.
  • WHAT PLANT-BASED MILKS ARE GOOD FOR THIS RECIPE? My go-to plant-based milk is Almond milk from Califia Farms. However, you can always use your fave or one of the following: coconut milk, oat milk (froths/foams VERY WELL), flax milk, etc.
  • TEA BAG: You can also use a chai tea bag blend instead if preferred.
