1. Put the chai concentrate into a
large mug.
2. Put the milk into a separate heatproof
mug. Hold the mug in one hand and
place under the steam wand so the
bottom of the wand is just below the
surface of the milk at an angle. Select
the Steam function and press the
START/STOP knob to start steaming.
While holding the mug at an angle, allow
the steam to move the milk around.
Once the milk begins to increase in
volume, lift the mug up higher so the
steam wand immerses deeper into the
milk (this will prevent large bubbles
from forming and will make a nice fine
milk foam). When the foam has almost
reached the top of the mug and you can
feel that the milk in the mug is quite
hot, press the START/STOP knob to stop
steaming. Tap the mug a few times to
remove any larger bubbles.
3. Slowly pour the steamed milk, holding
back the foam, into the mug with chai
4. Serve immediately.

Dirty Chai:
Brew 1 espresso capsule into the mug with the
chai concentrate.
