Can’t decide between CBD tea and CBD coffee? Caffeine lovers, fret no more! Skip the sugary drink mixes and concoct your very own CBD-infused dirty chai latte to get cozy on a fall afternoon.
Ingredients For Two CBD Dirty Chai Lattes
2 tbsp ground Fusion High Energy Blend Coffee
1 cup of water
1 bag of your favourite chai tea
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of your favourite type of milk or plant-based milk
Sweetener of your choice, to taste (you can use sugar, maple syrup, stevia or any other sweetener you like)
- Make your CBD-infused coffee.
- Add your coffee grounds and CBD oil to a French press and mix well; add boiling water and steep 3-5 minutes. Press down and wait an additional 5 minutes. You can find more detailed directions for infusing your coffee here.
- Make your tea.
- Add one tea bag to two large mugs, and pour ½ cup boiling water over it. Steep for 5 minutes, then remove the tea bag.
- Make your milk.
- Heat your milk and sweetener on low heat until warm, but not quite simmering.
- Allow it to cool slightly.
- Use a hand frother or whisk to froth the milk until foamy.
- Mix it all! Add ½ cup of CBD coffee to each mug of tea, leaving some room. Stir, and then pour the milk foam overtop. For extra style, add a sprinkle of ground cinnamon or nutmeg over your froth.
And that’s all there is to it!
