My Search for the Best Chai Tea Latte

It all started the summer after I graduated high school. After taking off our cap and gown, my friends and I eagerly drove south to celebrate our new status with trips to Disneyland, Newport Beach, and the like. One day of exploring led us to a secluded café overrun with greenery and clearly the kind of hip place we were hoping to find outside of our hometown. I ordered my usual, a chai tea latte. Thus, the journey began.

Until that moment my only knowledge of chai lattes came from Starbucks and Peet's. I took one sip of the chai latte at Gypsy Den and my eyes popped. If it had been a sitcom, I would have dropped my mug. It was unlike anything I'd ever tasted before. The sweet and spicy beverage stole my heart and from that day forward I made it my goal to find the best chai latte in the world.

This list is constantly growing, but here are some of the best chai tea lattes I have ever tasted (and I've tasted a lot of chai tea lattes).
