Our 100% organic, gluten-free and Kosher certified chais are a traditional spiced, milk-tea recipe brought back from the mountainous region of Karakorum, Pakistan. Our Authentic Chai (caffeinated) concentrate is an infusion of black tea (from the ancient tea gardens of Yunnan Province, China), cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, clove, vanilla bean and ginger that is gently steeped in fresh BC mountain water. It is then filtered and sweetened with evaporated cane juice and molasses, and then rounded off with a tiny bit of lemon juice concentrate.
If you don't want the caffeine, choose our Rooibos Chai concentrate. This version has the same great spice profile as our Authentic Chai, but is made using the smooth sweet flavour of rooibos, an herbal tea from South Africa, instead of black tea; however, the rest of the recipe stays exactly the same. This ensures that you enjoy the same perfect balance between spice and sweetness. Rooibos is loaded with antioxidants and is naturally caffeine free, making it great for kids, before bed or anytime.
If you are curious and want to know what this chai tastes like, ask your Barista to make a Chai Latte. Choose from regular, almond or soy milk and between our Authentic or Rooibos chai. This is an extremely popular item with our regular guests so we are confident that you will absolutely love it.
