The Best Chai Tea Recipes for the Season
Posted on October 16 2020
Spiced tea season is here and we’re ready to chai things up! Explore our mouth-watering chai recipes and discover new ways to enjoy your spicy tea blends.
The Difference between a Good and Great Chai Tea Latte Recipe
What you put into your chai tea latte will make or break your glorious bevvie, so be selective when you pick your chai latte ingredients. First things first—tea! Use a spicy and bold chai tea blend that will stand up to your milk or milk substitute. The good news is you can use any of our chai teas for your latte. If you are the more-is-more type, try our Double Spice Chai, Ginger Fire Chai, or our seasonal Holiday Chai tea for that extra kick of flavor. But no matter which tea flavor you go with, you'll start by steeping it double-strength (that means twice the tea bags!).
The next ingredient you need for your drink is milk. We recommend whole milk for a creamy tea drink, but if you prefer a skinny chai tea latte go with skim milk. We also love using nut milks to create interesting flavor profiles, like chai tea lattes with almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk. Lastly, sweeten up your cuppa with honey or sugar, and sprinkle cinnamon or nutmeg on top for a finishing touch.

Does Chai Tea Latte Have Caffeine
Did you just search “how much caffeine in chai tea latte”? We know what happened; you were sitting there sipping a sweet and spicy chai tea latte when you felt a welcome boost of energy. Would it blow your mind to know that you could replace your morning coffee with this dreamy drink? If you’re looking for caffeine in your chai, your best bets are Chai Spice Black Tea, Chai Green Tea, or Organic Rainforest Chai for a much-needed pick-me-up. If you're not ready to switch your morning coffee to a chai latte, simply add a shot of espresso to your latte to make a dirty chai tea latte. The best of both worlds!
But maybe you're looking for the opposite: a low or no caffeine chai tea latte. In that case, try our herbal and decaf chai options like Spice Dragon Red Chai or Decaf Vanilla Chai for a tea drink that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
