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.

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!
