Chai tea is a type of black tea that is flavored with a blend of spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and cloves. The addition of steamed milk to the tea gives the latte a rich, creamy texture and a frothy top.

Some people also like to add a dash of vanilla extract or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top of their chai tea latte for extra flavor.

Chai tea lattes can be healthy if they are made with unsweetened chai tea and unsweetened plant-based milk, such as almond or soy milk. These ingredients provide antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. However, if the chai tea latte is made with sweetened chai tea and dairy milk, it can be high in sugar and calories, which can negatively impact your health.
