The Popularity of Chai Lattes

Chai lattes have gained immense popularity in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. The combination of warm spices, creamy milk, and a touch of sweetness creates a comforting and indulgent drink that is perfect for winter. Whether enjoyed at home or at a cozy café, chai lattes have become a beloved beverage for many.

Chai, which means “tea” in Hindi, has been a staple in Indian households for centuries. Traditionally made with a blend of black tea, milk, and a variety of spices, chai is known for its rich and aromatic flavors. The addition of frothy milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg adds a touch of luxury to this already delightful drink.

Health Benefits of Chai Lattes

In addition to their delicious taste, chai lattes also offer a range of health benefits. The spices used in chai, such as ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom, are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These spices can help boost your immune system, aid digestion, and even improve your mood.

Black tea, the base of most chai lattes, is rich in antioxidants and can provide a gentle energy boost without the jitters often associated with coffee. The addition of milk adds calcium and protein to the drink, making it a nourishing choice for those looking to warm up and stay healthy during the winter months.

May we recommend adding our black scottie apple wassail concentrate to your fall drink selection? Though not a traditional chai, it is undoubtedly one of the most delightful beverages of the season. This concentrate also makes for a fantastic latte. However, we do suggest using lactose-free or non-dairy milk, as regular milk can react with the apple and alter the color to brown. While still enjoyable with the brown hue, we highly recommend following our advice for those who prefer the classic reddish color. 

Our apple wassail is like a sip from the king’s court of ciders. We would like to share two recipes with you.
