Chai Syrup

Chai Hot Chocolate


Chai Syrup

  1. Add the water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. 
  2. Take off the heat and add chai tea bags. Steep the tea for 10 minutes and remove the tea bags. Squeeze as much tea out of the bag as possible.
  3. Add cane sugar and bring the mixture to a boil stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Take the syrup off the heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  6. Store the syrup in an airtight jar or a bottle in the fridge.

Chai Hot Chocolate

  1. Add everything to a small saucepan and warm up over medium heat. Whisk the mixture until everything is well mixed and the chocolate melted to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  2. It shouldn’t boil or simmer, just steam.
  3. Serve the hot chocolate in a mug topped with whipped cream and a dusting of chai spice if desired. Enjoy!


The syrup will last for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
