Rainey Day Chai Tea Latte

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:   When it does rain, all the locals dig out their comfiest crew necks and make their favorite cocoa or chai tea – despite the fact that it’s still 80 degrees out. This recipe can also be adjusted for vegan preferences. I chose to use vanilla almond milk for my base, but you can choose whatever dairy/non dairy creamer of your liking.

Rainey Day Chai Tea Latte


  • 2 cups water
  • 2-3 bags of black tea or 1 heaping Tbs loose leaf black tea
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • Sweetener of choice – i.e. cane sugar, maple syrup, agave syrup, vanilla creamer, honey, etc.
  • 1 cup dairy or non-dairy milk – more to taste – I prefer almond milk in all of my latte type drinks
  • coconut whipped cream for my vegan friends, or just regular whipped cream will do
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews soaked in cool water over night or in hot water for an hour before preparing chai tea. This is an optional step, but I highly recommend it because it makes the latte creamier and richer.

Directions (make in your MogoBox Mug):

  1. Add water, tea and spices to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and add milk and preferred sweetener. Stir and allow to warm for 2-3 minutes off the heat.
  3. If you decided to add the cashews, pour both the tea mixture and cashews into a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings/sweeteners to desired flavor.
  4. Pour from blender into 2 mugs. Top with whipped cream, a dash of cinnamon, and a cinnamon stick for the aesthetic.
