Hi guys!

Y’all know I’m a huge tea fan.  I drink it daily and love collecting different types and flavors. I routinely enjoy a cup of Tazo Awake English Breakfast tea in the morning and then switch to green or decaf through the day.  It is one of my favorite things and is such a part of my day to day life.  The Tazo Awake English Breakfast tea gives me a unique awakening feeling that’s perfect for mornings.  I love it so much I even carry my own tea stash with me when I travel.

Tea is such a healthy choice as long as you don’t load it with sugar and can bring all sorts of health benefits into your life.  I sweeten mine with stevia which gives me the perfect flavor.

I know many of you are tea lovers too so I thought I’d share some of my other favorites for fall and the easiest way to make Dirty Chai Latte at home.  Trust me this version is better than the coffee house!

How to Make Dirty Chai Latte…

I drink tea year round but love finding cozier flavors this time of year.  Sweater and boot weather lends itself to the full, rich flavors of chai tea.  TAZO makes a perfect Chai Classic Black Tea that has a robust blend of black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, and spices.  This is another favorite of mine that I always have in the pantry.  It’s a great way to mix it up if you are getting bored with your basic breakfast tea.

They also offer the same classic flavor in premade concentrate, which is perfect for making a Homemade Chai Latte or Dirty Chai Latte recipe without all the fuss.  It’s such a great kitchen shortcut.

Zen Green Tea is another favorite of mine for fall.  It has a harmonious blend of green tea with lemongrass and spearmint.  I also have written about my love of TAZO’s Green Ginger tea before too.  It’s a bright green tea with ginger and a sweet note of pear.  The Awake English Breakfast tea, which I drink daily is the perfect breakfast tea.  It has a malty boldness and bright flavor which gives you just a little pick up any time of day.

Now is the perfect time to upgrade your tea and start your collection like I have because Publix is offering $1.50 off TAZO Tea products!  Just snag the digital coupon from Publix.com through November 6th.

So what about how to make Dirty Chai Latte?  If you aren’t familiar with a Chai Latte it’s a blend of rich chai tea with milk.  Dirty Chai Latte brings a delightful shot of espresso into the recipe!  If you really need a pick me up… this is it.

I love the rich cinnamon and spice flavors in Chai for fall and winter.  It’s a great way to mix it up from going all pumpkin all the time.

To make the easiest Dirty Chai Latte all you need is TAZO’s Chai Tea Concentrate.  The Chai Classic Black Tea bags are perfect if you want a straight cup of tea but the concentrate allows you to make a coffee house style drink at home in no time.

To make the Dirty Chai Latte recipe add equal parts TAZO Chai Tea Concentrate and milk.  Next, you add a shot of espresso to make it dirty.  To have a regular Chai Latte just leave out the espresso (which is what I’m doing during pregnancy!) If you want it warm heat up the concentrate but if you like it cold shake the mixture with ice.  It’s perfect with a touch of stevia too.

The finished drink tastes better than going out and saves you time and money.  It’s the perfect drink for the new season!

The recipe for it is below. Hopefully, it takes the guesswork out of how to make Dirty Chai Latte.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    I love Tazo tea and didn’t realize they had a chai concentrate. Love that you can mix it with dairy-free milk beverage!

    I love chai tea and my girls and I are big fans of Tazo! Usually I like my chai lattes dirty but lately I’ve been making more without since I have to limit the caffeine and usually already had my coffee.

    I am also a huge tea fan and I would love to try this. It looks really easy and since we have the same preference for Tea (Tazo English Breakfast) — I trust your taste and suggestion.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe.
