In many parts of the world, chai simply means tea, but in North America the word has come to be shorthand for masala chai, a traditional Indian spiced tea like the one offered by Tazo.
Featuring ingredients gathered from around the globe, chai teas start with antioxidant rich black teas blended with spices that have been used in Indian recipes for decades: ginger, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. There are an infinite variety of recipes for chai tea. Chai tea lattes have become a popular variation mixed with milk or a milk substitute and served both warm and over ice.
- You can make a chai tea latte at home in just a few steps from Tazo concentrates. Simply shake the carton and mix equal parts of Chai concentrate with milk or customize with any milk substitute. Then just heat on the stove or in the microwave or simply pour over ice. For a less spicy, sweeter taste, increase the amount of dairy.
- For chai tea from loose leaf or filter bags, we recommend adding tea to 8 fl oz of 215° water and steeping for 5 minutes.
