Why you will love this recipe?
- The iced chai tea latte is a chilled beverage, making it perfect for hot weather or when you want a refreshing drink to cool down.

- Making a chai latte at home gives you the flexibility to adjust the sweetness level based on your personal preference.
Chai concentrate: You can either make your own chai concentrate or use Tazo classic chai latte concentrate. Tazo concentrate tastes very similar to Starbucks chai concentrate.
Milk: Use 2% milk for that copycat Starbucks taste. Use whole milk for a creamy taste.
Ice cubes: Use as few or as many as you like.
Step 1: Pour the ice cubes into a serving glass.
Step 2: Top with black tea concentrate.
Step 3: Add cold milk and give it a quick stir. Serve immediately.
It is best to make this iced latte when you are ready to drink. Making it ahead of time will melt the ice and dilute the tea.
Freeze some chai concentrate in ice cube trays and use chai ice cubes instead of plain ice for an added kick. This is particularly important if you want to make this drink ahead of time, as it will prevent it from getting diluted and give you that strong chai flavor.
Adjust the amount of milk used. For a stronger chai flavor, use more concentrate, and for a subtle flavor, use more milk. Similarly, change the type of milk as per your preference. My milk of choice to make it vegan is oat milk.
Chai concentrate is already sweetened, so there is no need to add any sweetener. However, if you want it sweeter, add more sweeteners of your choice. You can use brown sugar, maple syrup, or even simple syrup.

Chai concentrate is black tea (like Assam tea) brewed with warm spices and sweeteners. It has many health benefits from warm spices. While chai concentrates are easily available in stores, it is very easy to make chai concentrate at home. The homemade version helps you control what spices you want to use and also the amount and type of sweetener you want to use.
Most kinds of milk work for this recipe. Dairy milk gives it a creamy taste; however, you can use any kind of milk that is dairy-free to make vegan iced chai. Plant-based milk like oat milk, soy milk, coconut milk, and almond milk works really well for this recipe.
Yes. Chai is made with black tea leaves, which have caffeine.
