Add 2 ounces of steamed milk (instead of using milk on the stove), one teaspoon of sugar, and two teaspoons of cardamom. Stir well or place in refrigerator for 4 hours so the mixture will cool down (and then it’s ready to serve).
You can also use honey instead of sugar. Chai Latte is a drink that can be used as a dessert or for your breakfast. You can even use it as a coffee substitute to replace milk with milk and coffee with black tea. Whatever the occasion, this drink will surely please your taste buds and give you a warm feeling!
