Copycat Starbucks Dirty Chai Latte

Starbucks is out with a new latte that’s on their latest secret menu. It’s gone viral and we can taste why everyone’s gotta have one, or two! Here’s my copycat Starbucks dirty chai latte version. It’s really similar and so delish. Try this simple and easy recipe, you’re going to love it too.

 

Have you seen the newest trending Starbucks’ hot and cold beverage that’s called a Dirty Chai Tea Latte?

Well, it’s all over TikTok, Pinterest, Instagram—you name it.

Once I saw that everyone was talking about this delicious beverage, I knew I wanted to try one. Loved it so much, I made one later that day at home. .

This dirty chai latte is actually on the Secret Menu at Starbucks’.

So, what that means is, the actual recipe is not on their regular menu.

You would go in and order their original hot chai tea latte and then, the magic happens.

What is a Dirty Chai Tea Latte?

This latte is different from a regular chai tea latte, there’s added honey for just a hint of sweetness and the kick to the beverage is: espresso.

Sounds a little crazy right? It sure did to me.

Tea and coffee together in one cup is supposed to be good?

Yes, it’s good! 

It really is so good in fact. The richness of the espresso just works so well with the spiced tea.

Then it’s topped off with foamy milk of your choice.

In this recipe I used oat milk, but I’ve also used almond milk and both tastes delicious.

You certainty can use dairy milk too.

No espresso? No worries, just make the coffee on the strong side.

Believe it or not, you can even use decaf coffee as long as it’s strong.

Since it’s way too expensive to buy one of these trendy drinks at Starbucks on a regular basis(especially in the Large or Grande size), I wanted to make it at home even more.

I’m one of those big Starbucks fan, but, I don’t like to spend the big bucks on their popular drinks (or stand on line).

So, I make lots and lots of copycat Starbucks recipes. If you have been on my blog before, you know there a bunch of copycat recipes to choose from. Especially Starbucks copycat recipes. I just love them all! 

Check this new delicious copycat recipe out and enjoy it right at home!

How to make a copycat Starbucks dirty chai latte…

 

Directions:

  1. Make your espresso or coffee and have it ready to serve.
  2. Bring water to a boil. Have one cup ready with the two tea bags inside. Pour the boiling water over the tea bags.
  3. Add honey and stir. Let steep for about 5 minutes.
  4.  In a small saucepan, heat the milk on medium heat until hot. Take the tea bags out of the glass and pour the tea into the pot of hot milk.
  5.  Using a frother, mix until the tea and milk gets frothy.(I just purchased this frother and love it) This only takes about 30 seconds to a minute and the frothing step is optional. If you don’t have a frother, follow these 3 simple steps to steam/froth milk in the microwave.
  6. Have two cups ready, pour half of the espresso into each cup. Add in the tea mixture. Froth again right in each cup. That’s it! 

Enjoy the smooth deliciousness
