Vegan Maple Chai

Skip the pumpkin spice latte and cozy up with a mug of Vegan Maple Chai, made with our spicy Chai MasalaThis blend of cinnamon, ginger, coriander, cardamom, star anise, black pepper and cloves is the perfect base for chai tea -- but don’t take my word for it! Make it at home, and feel free to get creative with different milks and sweeteners. 

Here we use almond milk and maple syrup for a rich and seasonal flavor, but we also love coconut milk, coconut sugar, honey, or agave. Sensitive to caffeine? Substitute decaf tea, or use rooibos for a bedtime drink!

Greetings, please consider rethinking the proportions and method of using the chai masala. If you grind chai spices (like they do in India) to a fine consistency (anywhere between powder and coarse sand), you get the same wonderful taste results and only need 1/4 tsp to make a pint ’o chai. My guess is that you would need a minimum of 3 mins of simmering for full flavor in your cup. The coarser the grind, the lighter the chai flavor in your cup. Your chai masala will go a long way. Cheers, Mr. Pooh
