This dirty chai latte is a twist on a traditional masala chai and an espresso latte - basically the perfect combination of tea and espresso. Dirty chai lattes are usually made with black loose leaf tea spiced with freshly ground spices like green cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and black peppercorns. They also contain a single shot of espresso and steamed milk. Get the dirty chai latte recipe below, add a shot of espresso and enjoy!
