Dirty Chai Latte

2 cups water
2 black tea bags
1/2 TBSP C&C Chai Spice
3 TBSP maple syrup
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup strong coffee or 2 shots of espresso

Prepare coffee or espresso.

In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the water and C&C Chai Spice to a boil. Once boiling, turn off the heat and allow the spices to steep in the water for 5 minutes. Turn heat back on and add the black tea bags and maple syrup. Return to a slight boil then turn off the heat.

Allow the tea bags to steep in the water and spices for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer. Set aside 1 cup of Chai tea. Store the rest of the chai tea in the fridge up to two weeks.

In the now empty pot, add milk and heat over medium heat, use a milk frother if you like or the attachment on your espresso machine to heat and/or froth the milk.

In two mugs layer coffee, chai tea and milk. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
