Our tips

Crush or grind the herbs prior to use.

Make sure that all ingredients are well mixed. Lighter particles and powders tend to sink at the bottom of the packet.

Do not leave herbs to steep in water as this may result in a slightly bitter infusion.

Unlike regular tea, which is brewed with water, chai tea is traditionally brewed using both warm water and warm milk.

It also tends to be sweetened to varying degrees.
