The best chai tea latte Syrup Recipe with chai tea spices. After drinking a delicious chai latte at Starbucks, I experimented with spices for a long time. Until I cooked this super delicious homemade syrup for chai tea. The chai syrup tastes fantastic in chai tea. The best chai spices for tea, is cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, anise, and pepper The cold season is starting and we have to get used to the idea that the days are getting shorter and often, unfortunately, much wetter. I actually don’t mind that so much. I enjoy the summer because we go to France and generally spend a lot of time outside but I also think fall and winter have their merits as seasons.
We still try to spend a lot of time outside and especially on weekends, even in the worst weather, we do not miss our walk in the woods. Afterward, of course, we need a nice warm drink to warm up and make ourselves comfortable. On these days I like to make myself a chai latte and because I was tired of buying ready-made products, which are often just way too sweet for me, I started at some point to cook my own chai latte syrup. It’s much easier than you think and you can store a small supply at home to reward yourself regularly with the delicious drink.
Chai Tea syrup – Homemade
Chai latte originates from Asia and has been prepared there since the 19th century. The name is derived from the word tea, which means “chai” in Mandarin. In the Hindu language, “Marsala” simply means mixture. So what sounds so special actually just means tea mixture. In India, tea is not drunk pure but boiled with a variety of spices such as cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. To avoid this hassle every time, you can make a very simple syrup yourself.
I usually use traditional English tea to make the chai latte and stir in about 2 to 3 teaspoons of syrup. To sweeten the whole thing up a bit, milk is added. I like to use foamed milk, which is nice and creamy and also looks great. Traditionally, a cinnamon stick is served with a chai latte to stir the tea. Cinnamon is said to have a whole range of positive benefits for our general well-being, and I especially like the delicious spicy taste and associate cinnamon with coziness.

- 1 large pot
- 1 Spoon
- 1 measuring cup
- 1 sieve
- 1 mortar
- 20 cardamom pods
- 30 g ginger
- 30 cloves
- 20 cinnamon flowers
- 1 cinnamon stick, broken apart
- 1 black peppercorns
- 1 star anise
- 1 Pinch of nutmeg
- 4 tea bags of black tea
- 500 ml water
- 400 g sugar
- Peel the fresh ginger and cut it into pieces. Crush the cardamom pods, cinnamon flowers, cloves and peppercorns very lightly in a mortar, but do not grind them. Break the cinnamon stick into coarse pieces.
- Bring all the spices, sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan and simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes.
- Then add the tea bags to the syrup and let everything steep together for about 5 minutes. It is important that the tea brews only briefly in the syrup, otherwise it will become bitter. Afterwards, the syrup is poured through a sieve and filled into small boiled bottles.
- Now you can, whenever you want, flavor a cup of tea with 2 to 3 teaspoons of the syrup and pour on creamy foamed milk. The syrup also tastes good just in hot milk.
