Time of the Day
From the royal courts of India where Chai is supposed to have originated to the modern-day cafes on every street corner, Chai tea is a unique flavour that has swept the world over. Long regarded as an important part of Eastern medicine, a cup of Chai will delight the senses.

The perfect cup of Cha
A traditional cup of Chai tea involves more than just an infuser or a pot like most teas. There is an art to making Chai that is best mastered using only the finest, purposefully designed tools and equipment. Chai was traditionally made over a stove using a copper pot meant specifically to extract the best flavours from the tea itself. These days, there is a wonderful range of Chai tea bags that have been created to recreate traditional methods of making this spicy and delicious beverage for those on the go.
A delicious herbal blend
Herbs traditionally blended with the Black tea found in a Chai mix can include cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger and black peppercorns. Those who enjoy a cup of Chai tea will love the rich and creamy flavours that shine through in every brew — and when mixed with milk, the finished product is succulent and sweet with spicy undertones that are best topped with a drop of honey.
How to make your own cup of Chai
Perfect for you to whip up during a busy morning or to linger over a warming cup and savour its vibrant flavours, the steps to creating a rich and aromatic cup of Chai are simple.
Find your Chai tea style
If you’re a traditionalist and enjoy the process of brewing tea, loose-leaf Chai tea will be the right choice for you. If you’re in a hurry or want to experience the more modern variations of the beverage, you may be better off with a Chai tea bag or a powder to create a decadent Chai latte.
Consider the creaminess
One of the first decisions you need to make in the brewing process is just how creamy you like your tea to be. For the full flavour experience, you can use all milk to create your brew. If you prefer a more delicate balance, brewing your Chai using half milk and half water is also perfectly acceptable.
Take it slow
Chai tea benefits from a slow and methodical brewing process. Simmering a stovetop pot at medium-high heat will release more intricate flavours from its mix of spices. On the other hand, if you are brewing a stickier type of Chai, you are better off using our Sticky Chai Infuser to make a speedy cup on the go.
Let it simmer
Whether you’re using all milk or a mix of milk and water to blend your Chai, it is important to let it simmer gently over mild heat. With a little patience, you can extract the most flavour and be rewarded with a warm biscuit-like colour that signals its time to remove it from the stove.
