A Chai Tea Latte has been part of my morning routine for the past several years now. I get up and head out the door early just to get a jump on the line at my favorite local Starbucks, and by now they recognize my voice the moment I say, ‘I’d like an Iced Venti Soy Chai Tea Latte.’
Now that I’m at home through the end of year, I decided to start making my own chai tea latte from time to time, and it’s literally one of the easiest drinks to make. Since I’ve started re-introducing dairy into my diet (thanks to the best enzyme capsules!) I’ve been going between regular whole milk and the Lactaid Whole Milk on days where I don’t want to take an enzyme capsule. Whole Milk is one of the best options for those of us with lactose intolerance to digest, because the fat content in the milk slows down the digestion process.
When it comes to a chai tea mix, there are several options out there, including the DONA Original Marsala Chai Tea Concentrate that’s available through HIVE, or one of the TAZO Chai Latte Black Tea Concentrate that are available at most grocery stores.

While the rule is to add equal parts of milk and concentrate, I like to keep my chai’s on the mild side, so I’m a little more heavy handed with my milk than my chai concentrate. Both of the chai tea latte concentrates that I’ve recommended on this post work well either hot or iced, so the choice is up to you!
