Here is an easy recipe for delicious iced chai, using the Quick Steep Method.
Although there are several ways to make an iced chai, this one uses a simpler quick steep method (no stove top or pot needed) and can easily be used to make one cup or ten! You can even make a big batch and store in the refrigerator for up to a week, since with this style the milk isn’t added until you serve.
Iced Chai • Quick Steep Method
1. In a glass measuring cup, add 1 tablespoon of your favourite chai blend and 1 tablespoon sugar.
2. Add 1/2 cup boiling water and steep for 5+ minutes.
3. Stir well and strain over ice in a tall glass.
4. Top-up with milk, cream or substitute. Makes 1 cup.
This recipe works for all of our chai blends... Rose Petal Chai, Golden Turmeric Chai, Candied Ginger Chai and Original Chai Blend. For a caffeine-free iced chai, try our decaffeinated Original Chai Blend.
Sweetness Tip: for sweetener we love using a raw sugar, but also great options are local honey or maple syrup
Milk Tip: For milk we usually use 3.25% homogenized milk. But experiment! For a thicker, creamier iced chai try heavier cream (18%). For a vegan chai, try coconut, oat or cashew milk!
