A good, super-easy treat for a chai tea fan. Serve immediately or store in the freezer (will change texture).

  • Blend 1 cup ice and milk together in a blender until smooth. Add remaining 1 cup ice and chai tea mixture; blend until smooth.

Cook's Note:

You may want to cut the tags off the tea bags before boiling. It's okay if a tea bag bursts, that just means you have to strain it later.

I really like this recipe although not sure if it counts! I followed Amy's suggestion and brewed the tea with the milk and water. I omitted the ice and drank it hot. Also I used about 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar instead of 2 Tbsp. Good taste would make again. Read More

The taste was delicious! I found it came out watery but I rarely ever measure anything so that might have been just me. To get more of that chai flavor try boiling it with the milk as well as the water. Then let it cool to about room temp before putting it in the blender with the ice. Read More

This tasted watered down. I even used less water to brew the tea and it was still too runny. Read More
