Gluten-Free Homemade Chai Concentrate

Gluten Free Homemade Chai Concentrate



“Venti 1/2 sweet Chai tea latte with Lactaid.”

That’s my favorite drink from Starbucks during the winter season. These days that drink costs me around $5.00 which is crazy. I love Starbucks but I’m finding the increased prices a bit much.
So what to do?
Well in the fall I made homemade pumpkin spice syrup so that I could make my own pumpkin spice tea lattes. Now I can make my own 1/2 sweet chai lattes in the comfort of my own home, and so can you! ????
This concentrate has very little brown sugar in it but feel free to increase the amount if you have a real sweet tooth.This concentrate makes an excellent Christmas gift as well. Store it in a decorative glass jar.
