What is a Dirty Chai Latte and how to make this drink at home?

Creating a Dirty Chai Latte masterpiece in your own home is not as difficult as you think.  Read on to learn how you can become a Dirty Chai Latte connoisseur.

What is a Dirty Chai Latte?

A Dirty Chai is a chai latte mixed together with a shot of espresso.  The espresso can be delivered from coffee pods or brewed coffee beans.

The Dirty Chai is great for those who don’t love the taste of strong coffee but is seeking a mild taste from Espresso.

The Dirty Chai Latte is popular because when done right, the blend of Chai spices with the Espresso creates a drink that is full of flavour.

Creating Great Dirty Chai Lattes at home:

The Dirty Chai Latte is commonly a cafe drink, but it can be easily made at home thanks to Vibe Coffee’s “Dirty Chai Latte” pod packs.

The reason the Dirty Chai Packs are popular is because if you try to build a Dirty Chai on your own, you must pull together a high volume of ingredients that must be perfectly blended together, making this a much bigger challenge.  Some examples of the ingredients needed to build a Dirty Chai Latte

Vibe Coffee takes the above list of seven (plus) items and reduces it to 2 items:

#1.  A Nespresso Compatible Chai Latte Pod

#2.  A Nespresso Compatible Espresso Pod

This is what the Vibe Coffee “Dirty Chai Latte” pod pack is made up of:  the Vitality Espresso pod and the Serenity Chai Latte pod.  Our Vitality Nespresso Compatible espresso pod is designed to blend perfectly with the Nespresso Compatible Serenity Chai pod.

It’s the first ever Dirty Chai Pod Pack in existence!!

Why Two Pods?

The Vibe Coffee Dirty Chai Latte pod pack is made up of separate Espresso pods and Chai Latte pods because there is no single Dirty Chai pod product in existence that combines both espresso and chai. The reason for this is because you need enough espresso and chai ingredients to make this drink tasty.

How to Make:

Making a Dirty Chai is easy with the Vibe Coffee “Dirty Chai Latte” pod packs.

Follow these two steps:

Step 1:  Place one Chai Latte pod in your Nespresso® compatible coffee pod machine and pour into a mug.

Step 2:  Keep the mug with your now poured Chai Latte in your pod machine, now place one Vitality Espresso pod in your pod machine.  Allow the espresso to mix with the Chai in the same mug.

You have just made a Dirty Chai!
