Chai

Chai has been around for centuries. If you've ever travelled through Northern India, you'll have see street vendors selling their piping hot, spicy chai to tourists and natives alike. In fact the word 'chai' simply means 'tea' in many languages around the world, and native drinkers of what we call chai would only refer to this spicy brew as 'masala chai' which translates as 'spiced tea'. If you ask for chai in India you'll likely just get plain old black tea!
Only in the past few years have we here in America picked up on the wonder chai. Now, it's one of the trendiest beverages around with many traditional and non-traditional varieties available.


Traditionally speaking, chai is usually a blend of black tea and various spices ground into a fine powder which is simmered in rich whole milk and sweetened with honey. All of our chai blends are great HOT or ICED!

HOW TO BREW A CUP OF CHAI TEA:
Whole milk works best, but feedback tells us that skim milk, evaporated milk, rice milk, soy milk and even sweetened condensed milk work well also.
* In a saucepan, bring 1/2 cup water and 2 teaspoons honey or sugar to a boil.
* Add heaping teaspoon chai blend and 1/2 cup milk. Simmer 5 minutes on a very low heat.
* Strain into a cup. Sit back...close your eyes...and ENJOY!!

Preparing chai for a crowd? Basically, add 1 heaping teaspoon chai for every 8 oz. cup. Increase milk, water and sweetener accordingly.

Below, we offer a variety of exotic and savory chais, both traditional and not so traditional.
