FAQ

How do I make a chai latte?

Firstly, shake the bottle. It blends the sediments that have settled at the bottom and it releases all that delicious chai aromas. Measure out 30ml of chai to 220ml of hot or iced milk then sweeten it to taste.

We recommend sweetening it with at least a teaspoon of honey or something similar to accentuate the flavour of the chai. We also like using soy milk for its creaminess – Happy Happy Soy Boy is a great one to use – but it works well with other milks.

For iced chai, use a runny liquid sweetener such as honey, maple syrup or agave to easily mix in to the chai and milk.

Here’s our recipe to Addictive Chai Latte.

Does your chai contain sugar?

Our chai concentrate is unsweetened. We decided not to include sugar in our ingredients so that you have the choice, the option to add as much or as little as you like.

How much sugar should I add?

The sweeter you make the chai, the more flavoursome it becomes. We know, it’s quite unfortunate but that’s why we left it out of the ingredients list so you can choose how much to add. Whatever you do, don’t add more chai to cut through the milk. The flavour is there, you just need to make it sweeter.

Choose one of the 3 flavour profiles and our recommendations:

Sweet Tooth: If you naturally have a sweet tooth, add 3 – 4 teaspoons of sweetener. This will give you a similar flavour to a powdered or syrup chai.

Cutting down: Need to limit the sugar intake? Great, add 1 – 2 teaspoons. This will give you a similar flavour to a sticky chai.

Hard Core: An advocate for Sarah Wilson‘s I Quit Sugar? Wicked! Add half a teaspoon or none at all. That’s the beauty about Chai Addict, it’s really up to YOU.

What types of sugar do you recommend?

We like to use coconut sugar as it has a lovely caramel flavour that bonds quite well with Chai Addict. Honey and maple syrup are also our go to.

What milk do you recommend?

You can use dairy or plant based milks that works to your palate. But we really like it with a creamy soy milk like Happy Happy Soy Boy or almond like Almo.

Is your product vegan friendly?

Yes. Our concentrates contain only water, spices and tea.

Does your product contain caffeine?

Our concentrates have minimal caffeine content which comes directly from black ceylon tea.

How do I store my chai?

Our chai has a 2 year shelf life! Once opened, pop it in the fridge and use it within six months.

What makes Chai Addict different to others?

There are several options available in the chai market but the 3 most popular are powder, syrups and sticky chai.

The powder variety is generally made up of spices and milk powder. An easy, convenient option like hot chocolate without the brewing time. Chai syrups are very similar. Unfortunately, unlike Chai Addict, they are also full of preservatives and heavily sweetened with sugar.

The “wet chai” variety is a mixture of raw spices and tea that have been sweetened with natural sugars like honey, lending to its stickiness. Brewing times may take up to 5 minutes are required to maintain consistent flavours. A little less convenient but a more traditional way of making chai.

Chai Addict (and its twin, Chai Harder) has already been brewed for you using only water, spices and tea. We have made the process simpler by removing the brew time. To top it off, it’s an unsweetened, preservative free liquid concentrate. Infusing 30ml of chai concentrate, to 220ml of hot or cold milk enables the you to enjoy the authentic taste of premium chai, in a faster and more convenient way than traditional chai blends. And because the concentrate is unsweetened, you have the choice to add as much, or as little sweetener to your own personal taste.

How do you make your iced chai tasters at the market?

If you’d like to emulate the flavour of iced chai we make at the markets, make sure to use Happy Happy Soy Boy and sweeten with coconut sugar. We make our coconut sugar to a syrup first so it blends easily for iced chai.

How many servings in the bottles?

10 servings for 300ml and 16 for 500ml. Serving size is 250ml or a cup.
