Subject: looking for a chai recipe
 

I started with the starbucks chai tea, not the concentrate but with the bags.  Later I discovered Teavana Taj Masala Chai and really like it, but they have discontinued it.  

so, I'm back to the starbucks bags but it is very expensive.  also I detect a sort of wang that isn't preferred.  

So I started reading online hoping to find a good recipe I could build at home.  Some recipes are heavy pepper related, others less, but I haven't yet found anything close to the teavana.

Would anyone have a suggestion?

thanks,
tim

Wife and daughter drink Teavana Samurai Chai. On the rare occasion I want a tea latte I do "London Fog" same thing just with double strength Earl Grey.

 
Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

Just to back up what jwoodyu said, I have also tried "London Fog" and it's really nice - I'd definitely recommend it.

Let us know how you get on!

Look into buying from Chai Direct.  Entire online store devoted to chai and chai concentrates.  

My personal favorites are the blue and black chai from Chai company.  A lot of the local cafes around me serve it too.  

As for a recipe I froth my own loose leaf Masala Chai in with the milk/soy and let steep for 2 min and strain into cup.  It's really really good with vanilla soy.
(10 g tea to 8 oz milk/soy.  Steam to 160'F, steep for 2 min, strain and serve)

Enjoy!

I like my chai nice and simple, I usually just boil water with ginger in a pan. Than I add the Tea (any Black Tea, Lipton will do) cinnamon and milk (which destroyes the antioxydants I heard). Than just strain it and there you have it.

It's not that I am addicted to tea. But I would like sencha naturals green tea and sometimes I make tea for myself at home by adding simple ginger and lemon grass in boiling water with little honey.

Newest chai drink favorite is a loose leaf masala chai latte.  Steam loose leaf chai in with vanilla soy. :)  All natural, no sugar and tastes great. Adding matcha is great too.

  1. Mix 8 oz vanilla soy with 10g loose leaf masala chai
  2. Steam to approx 160'F and let sit for 1 min.
  3. Strain into cup and enjoy

  4. If you want matcha add into the mug with hot water and add finished latte in with it.

Keurig carries a great k-cup for Vanilla Chai Latte...

What you'll need:

   1 Timothy's® Chai Tea K-Cup® pack 4 oz of milk
   Milk Frother
   Sweetener (optional)
   1 Mug

Directions:

   Brew 6-8 oz. of tea into a 14 oz. mug
   While the tea is brewing, warm the milk in your milk frothier
   When tea is ready, add 4 oz. of skim milk
   Stir in sugar or sugar substitute to taste
 
Enjoy!"
