Milk and Honey, honey iced chai latte

If you haven’t checked out Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur yet, I highly recommend it. It’s gained a huge following for good reason. The collection of poems are accessible, raw and real AF, dealing with themes of love, abuse, femininity, loss, healing and more. Most are bite-sized and perfect to savor here and there throughout your day. Don’t be fooled! These short poems have a lot to unpack.

While you’re reading and experiencing all the feels, why not enjoy a tasty tea latte inspired by Milk and Honey. Like the poems, this recipe is short and easy to make, but it packs a lot of flavor. You can enjoy this latte warm or cold, depending on your mood. Since it’s now summer here, I’ll be making mine iced.


Milk and Honey iced chai tea latte


You’ll Need:

8 oz milk (or the milk of your choice, I used rice milk)

4 oz water

chai tea, 2-3 tbsp loose or 2-3 bags

honey (to taste)



  1. Pour the water and milk into a sauce pan and heat the mixture on the stovetop until it’s good and hot, but not quite boiling. Remove from heat.
  2. Steep 2-3 bags (or 2-3 tbsp if loose) of your selected tea for the amount of time directed on the package. Normally 4-5 minutes.
  3. After removing the tea bags or straining out the loose leaves, add honey to taste. I don’t like mine overly sweet, but you might. Remember, you can always add more.
  4. Pour your latte into a mug if you’d like it warm. Let it cool for a bit and pour it over ice for an iced latte or blend it with ice 50/50 for a blended one. Enjoy!
