Dirty Chai Lattes
posted on April 19th, 2016 by Lauren Pepin
Chai, from India, is a spiced milk tea that has become increasingly popular throughout the world. Chai in India is generally made up of rich black tea, heavy milk, a combination of various spices, and a sweetener.
This drink is so sweet and satisfying, it’s almost completely perfect just as it is. But if you are like me and prefer the flavor of coffee, add a little dirty to your Chai and this drink will be just perfect.
The dirty that I am referring to is espresso. Espresso gives a Chai Latte a supreme balance of flavor and a little kick of caffeine. It’s really fun to order a Dirty Chai, especially if you add all your preferences to your order; you sound like a coffee expert: “I would like a soy, dirty chai, extra hot please!” If you ever order your drink from a novice and they look at you funny, just tell them you would like an added shot of espresso.
If the weather is a little too warm for hot drinks, we recommend trying our Dirty Chai Latte over ice. Believe me, it’s just as good – cool and refreshing too.
