Makes one 10 oz drink

Substitutions

Don’t have an ingredient on hand? We can recommend a few alternatives!

For More Spice

Increase the heat with twice the spice! Stash Double Spice Chai and Ginger Fire Chai are both excellent tea substitutions.

For Less Caffeine or Caffeine-Free

If you’re avoiding caffeine, Stash Spice Dragon Red Chai is a great caffeine-free herbal alternative. To keep the black tea flavor, we would also recommend using Stash Decaf Vanilla Chai.

Milk Alternatives

Plant-based milks work great in this recipe, but not all of them will froth up nicely.

Alternatives to Honey

Go with what you like! Honey brings a well-rounded sweetness, but you could also use agave nectar or brown sugar.
