Next, you’ll need to brew your espresso. You can use an espresso machine, or you can use a stovetop espresso maker.

Once you have your espresso, you’ll need to add it to a cup or mug.
Then, you’ll need to add your chai tea to the espresso. You can use a chai tea bag or loose chai tea. If you’re using a chai tea bag, you’ll need to add it to the cup or mug and then pour hot water over it. If you’re using loose chai tea, you’ll need to add it to a tea infuser and then add it to the cup or mug. Once you have your chai tea, you’ll need to add milk. You can use whole milk, 2%, or non-dairy milk. If you want a foamy latte, you’ll need to use whole milk.
Once you have your milk, you’ll need to add it to the cup or mug and then use a handheld milk frother to froth the milk. If you don’t have a handheld milk frother, you can use a whisk. Once you have frothed milk, you’ll need to add it to the cup or mug and then top it off with cinnamon or nutmeg.
