Bhakti Chai Concentrates to Spice Up Your Dairy-Free Latte


Bhakti Chai Concentrates are a new generation of convenient, high-quality brews for making dairy-free tea lattes at home. And to be completely honest, they kicked the pants off Starbucks chai tea lattes. Not to mention, I didn’t have to worry about milk cross-contamination by busy baristas!

Tasting Notes for Bhakti Chai Concentrates

These are pure spiced tea concentrates that can be poured into your favorite dairy-free milk beverage, hot or cold. As I sipped, my mind wandered to many other delicious ways to enjoy these spicy brews. But for now, I’ll give you the lowdown on their taste and performance in dairy-free chai lattes.

Unsweetened Chai Concentrate

Bhakti describes these concentrates as “A blend of fiery spices, fresh pressed organic ginger and organic fair-trade certified black tea.” And that pretty much sums up how it tastes. Even when mixed 50/50 with milk beverage, as instructed, the spice infusion is deliciously intense and the ginger permeates with a warm heat. It was probably the best Chai tea latte I’ve ever tasted! I enjoyed it with Elmhurst cashew milk, which has just a smidgen of added sugar. And it was just sweet enough for me.

Ingredients – organic fair trade black tea, organic ginger juice and spices. (no may contain statement)

Original Chai Concentrate

The Original has 13 grams of added sugar per serving, which is probably quite a bit less than your average coffeehouse brew. Yet, it has a delightful sweetness that melds perfectly with unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage. The sugar does tame the spice and heat a little, so this might be the best option if you are ginger timid.

Ingredients – organic fair trade black tea, organic ginger juice, organic fair trade cane sugar and spices. (no may contain statement)

Nitro Straight Chai

At Expo West, I had the chance to try their new Nitro blend, which is a straight-up 50/50 infusion of their two chai concentrates. It was deliciously intense with spice, and was made for those of us who can’t get enough ginger.

  1. we love these chais (and that Elmhurst cashew milk – SO good!), I have a new one in the fridge now! I need to find the nitro, I think we’d enjoy that too!

  2. I’m loving this! Having the shelf stable version is terrific . I have a suspicion, though, that it won’t last long at my house. We all love chai.
