Rumour has it that back in the 90s, a traveller walked into a cafe in England and ordered a dirty chai latte. Thinking that a latte always has coffee, the barista added a shot of espresso to a mug of milky chai tea.


Taking a sip of this strange concoction, the traveller realised that it was actually really delicious. He started ordering the drink everywhere he went and crowned it a ‘dirty chai’.
