Chai without milk? (really??)
What are the benefits?
Reduces calories and fat content, as well as relief from lactose intolerance symptoms.
AND you can have it HOT or COLD!
I have been on the road, serving chai to the community in stores across Sydney, I have had met amazing people and gained great feedback from the chai drinking community.
So as a die-hard chai consumer, I drink chai with milk,
BUT I keep getting asked;
Can you have chai without milk? The answer is YES!
After my initial shock and listening to you all and trying it out for myself a few times, I like it!
VERDICT: Refreshing, flavoursome, HOT or COLD.
You can taste the spices in a unique way that can sometimes be altered with milk.
The beautiful part is that you don’t have to use as much chai AND it takes LESS time!
1 scoop of chai into an infuser in a mug
Add 200ml boiled water
Steep for a minimum of 30 seconds
BEWARE: Longer makes it stronger!
(This is due to the *tannins found in tea which occur naturally in the tea leaves; however, the more premium quality tea leaves will lessen the bitterness after taste (like ours)
Remove the infuser, keep aside on the tray (for that second cup )
And voila! Chai without milk
Our tea is sourced, and taste tested by our stringent quality control team! We only choose premium tea leaves that are balanced, easy to brew and a few hundred cuts above your average tea bag tea!!
So, sit back and experiment with our range, here are a few suggestions to get you started.. get ready to drooooool…

Roasted wattle seed and carob... To die for! The smooth velvety *chocolatey taste will indulge your sweet cravings, 100% guilt free. *(Almost chocolate!)
Lemon Myrtle: A softly spiced meringue kiss is how I describe our Native myrtle chai.. This one is SOOO unexpected, Present are soft notes of creamy lemon and gentle spice and a hint of coconut nectar.. !
