What is Chai?

Chai is a mix of black tea, and sweet and savoury spices. Masala Chai is another name for this style of milk-based tea. There is as many different styles and blends of chai tea as there is people who drink it. Common spices include cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, star anise, and cloves. Some chai blends are so focused on the spices, they even omit the black tea. Regardless of what’s in it, you can always find a style you’ll enjoy. And because it uses milk, the tea blend makes excellent chai tea lattes.

  1. Mix Ambient Moon Chai Concentrate with milk
  2. Heat mixture on stove top, or in microwave in a microwave safe container

If you want to get extra special, you can whip the milk with one of the awesome milk frothers we have at Cupper’s. Then sprinkle a bit of nutmeg or cinnamon on top, sip and enjoy. Another special treat is to add a shot of Monin Syrup to the mix. Peppermint Chai anyone?

If you want an Iced Chai Tea Latte, skip heating the mix. Pour the blend over ice, and relax with the pleasant spicy chill. That’s it, that’s all!
