Our Tea Master has created Express Chai to give you authentic chai taste, but with a shorter brewing time. We love traditionally brewed chai tea, but it can take added steeping time to bring out the full flavour of the black tea and spices against the creamy milk. Express Chai steeps more quickly than traditional chai tea, enabling you to make a delicious cup of your favourite drink faster!
As always, we start with high quality loose black tea and spices, but the ingredients are specially cut and cured, which allows them to release flavour more quickly. You may notice that there are some smaller tea leaves and pieces in this tea than is usual for Silk Road Teas, and it's in order to assist with rapid infusion.
To make a chai tea latte, pour 1/2 cup of boiling water over one teabag. While the tea is steeping, steam milk (or non-dairy alternative). Once the milk is steamed, pour it over the hot tea for instant happiness. Optional: add sweetener to taste. For authentic chai, use palm sugar to sweeten. Find it in Chinatown or ethnic food stores.
Be sure to check out our other chai teas because... who can resist? For a spicy, zingy drink, our Herbal Chai is beyond compare. For a deluxe, traditional chai, reach for Silk Road Chai. For a rooibos twist on chai, check out our Red Bush Chai.
