Prep Time:

Serves: 1


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 rooibos tea bag
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon demerara, coconut or date sugar
  • 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon homemade chai spice + more for sprinkling


  1. Place the water and tea bag in a small saucepan, cover and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer and leave for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add non-dairy milk, sugar and spices. Bring back to a simmer, just until it’s heated. This will ensure that you don’t get the milk film over top of your chai.
  4. Allow to sit for a couple of minutes before removing the bag, pouring into a large mug and sprinkling with extra chai spice if desired.
