Green Tea Chai Latte

By Jill Nussinow
Chai tea spices vary greatly. Here a few ingredients produce wonderful results. Green tea and spices are great sources of antioxidants, delivered in every delicious sip. I prefer this with nondairy milk but not soy, which curdles easily.


    • Agave syrup
    • cardamom pods
    • cinnamon sticks
    • green tea
    • low-fat or nondairy milk
    • piece ginger
    • Water


    1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil with the ginger slices, cardamom pods and cinnamon. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
    2. Turn off heat, stir in green tea leaves into water, and let steep for 2 minutes. Add agave syrup, milk and salt, and heat until hot but not boiling over medium heat.
    3. To serve, strain into cups. Add more agave syrup if desired, to taste.
