Variations:

  • The beauty of making chai is you can vary the ingredients according to your taste. Some Chai lovers enjoy the taste of ginger in their chai. Add ginger flavor either by adding fresh ginger pieces or alternatively use our ginger assam tea, an exceptional blend of Assam leaf tea and natural ginger root.
  • Variety is the spice of life. Try incorporating some of these spices in your chai, according to your taste preferences: anise seed, black peppercorns, bay leaves, and nut meg.
  • You may also want to substitute different types of black tea. For subtler chai flavor use a high quality darjeeling or premium nilgiri tea.
