Chia Tea Latte Indian Recipe
The spicy flavors of this chia tea latte recipe are always a warming and comforting indulgence. This authentic chia tea latte recipe features an abundance if antioxidant rich spices along with honey and milk. Once the scent of the simmering spices hit the air you will wonder why you haven’t tried making homemade chia tea latte before. You can grind the spices fresh and they will taste better using a coffee grinder. But don’t use a grinder that you use coffee beans in because the oils from the beans will permeate the spices. Unless you want your chia to taste like coffee.
I am not giving medical advice and you should always check with a doctor first. That being said if you research these spices on WebMD you will find helpful information. The spices in this tea are know for their various health benefits. This is one of the most delicious ways to get benefits from these spices. Ginger is well know to help if you are feeling under the weather. Cardamom also may have beneficial effects for colds. Furthermore, honey is known for its helpful effects for sore throats. You definitely don’t have to feel under the weather to enjoy this tea. I drink it several times a week for the antioxidants and flavor. I also love the heavenly perfume of this tea.
To make this recipe you will need the following spices: ginger, cardamom, coriander (optional), cinnamon sticks, and cloves. It’s also best with whole milk but you can use lower fat milk as well. If you have to substitute the honey I would recommend brown sugar. You will have to simmer the cinnamon stick and spices. Then add the tea, preferably Indian assam tea, and steep. Finish it by warming the milk and honey. Adding whipped cream is optional, but highly recommended.
