As the weather gets gradually more grey and gloomy, Henny & Joe’s Chai with its hints of Christmas spice starts to call to me from the cupboard. Combine it with frothy milk and a shot of Roundhill Roastery coffee, and you’ve got what’s known as a dirty chai latte – a cosy winter warmer that will perk you up on a cold day.
About 600ml whole milk
A vanilla pod
3 tbsp Henny & Joe’s Chai
2 shots of Roundhill Roastery Roasted Finca
Ground cinnamon, for sprinkling
1. First, fill up your favourite mugs with milk, and then pour into a small saucepan. Add the vanilla pod and heat gently on the hob.
2. In the meantime, make up the coffee – pop two heaped tablespoons of coffee into a small cafetière, and add a small splash of boiling water. Leave to steep for 30 seconds, to wake the coffee up, then add another 200ml of boiling water and leave for a little longer.
3. Once the coffee is giving off plenty of steam and starting to get frothy, remove the vanilla pod and stir through 3 tbsp of Henny & Joe’s Chai. Then, use an electric whisk to whisk the milk until there’s a nice layer of froth on top.
4. Plunge the cafetière and divide the coffee between two mugs, and then top up with the warm milk. Finish with a layer of froth and a sprinkling of ground cinnamon.
