How Does it Taste?
This lower caffeine spiced cookie butter latte has all the warming flavors of a classic chai thanks to spices like ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom and it plays well with the sweet spiced cookies blended into the cookie butter. The mellow backbone of black tea powder helps meld all the flavors together without standing out and depending on the milk you choose, there may also be nutty or buttery notes, as well.
What You'll Need for this Recipe
Cookie Butter ain't in the title for no reason! It adds creamy, sweet, bakery flavor to the mix in one feel swoop.
Masala Chai Powder is one of my favorite creations, combining instant black tea and masala chai spices for a satisfying morning shortcut. Use one to two servings depending on your preference.
Milk is key in a latte but you have options. I typically use almond milk here but feel free to use your favorite plant-based or dairy milk, with the exception of buttermilk.

Substitutions & Variations
Creamy or Crunchy - Making a biscoff cookie flavored latte at home is possible with whatever kind of cookie butter you like. I prefer creamy in this recipe but you can use crunchy for pops of cookie texture.
Hot or Iced - Have a warm and cozy moment during cooler months or pour over ice when it's hot outside!
How to Make
Step One: Heat milk to steaming (about 150 degrees Fahrenheit). Do not boil.
Step Two: Add cookie butter and chai to warm milk.
Pro Tip: I like to heat the milk and combine the latte in a large glass measuring cup to contain splashes and for easy pouring. And easy cleanup is a bonus!
Step Three: Mix all the ingredients using a hand mixer or handheld frother to combine all the ingredients and add foam.
Step Four: Pour the tea latte into a mug and enjoy carefully.
Pro Tip: Raise the frother up and down below the surface of the liquid to create foam on top of your tea latte!
Wondering what other flavors go with chai? Of course, the biscoff and speculoos flavors pair well with chai spices. So does apple, which is what inspired my easy apple butter chai latte. And my honey pumpkin chai latte combines golden honey and autumnal pumpkin deliciously. Both are so great for fall.
