Make Starbucks-worthy chai at home

Lemon Jelly Cake

With some black tea and the best spices of fall — nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamon, anise — you've got a simple chai recipe that isn't loaded with sugar.

A good spiced chai is just like a Pumpkin Spice Latte — not only is a good chai latte addictive, but it signals the coming of fall. Put down the iced coffees and iced teas, chai is made with sugar, spice, and everything nice in autumn. 

Which is why we're loving this homemade spiced chai concentrate recipe from our Culinary Content Network blogger Lemon Jelly Cake. With some black tea and the best spices of fall — nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamon, and anise — you have got a simple chai recipe that isn't loaded with sugar. After all, a good chai recipe should be equal parts sweet and spicy. 

Once you've made your chai concentrate, you can keep it in the freezer for up to two weeks and have Starbucks-quality chai in the comfort of your own home (and undoubtedly, at a fraction of the price).
