Chai latte. Chai tea. Masala chai. Chai tea latte. Whatever you want to call it – it’s the super-comforting, totally delicious spiced tea drink you’ll find in every cool street-corner coffee bar and bearded barista joint out there. Of course, veteran chai fans will know that masala chai (to give it its correct name) is not just a ‘trend’ – and there’s nothing new about it! It’s been around for thousands of years and is something of an institution in South Asia – particularly India, with variations in Nepal and Tibet.
(Since you’re probably not here for a history lesson on the origins of chai, we’ll move swiftly on – but if you are interested, we wrote a handy article about it here.)
We’re guessing you’re here because you love chai latte, or know someone who does. So what about chai latte gifts? Are they even a thing? Do they even exist? The answer to both those questions is YES! If you’re looking for chai latte gifts, you came to the right place. So let’s dive in with our super-quick round up of the 5 best chai latte gifts you can buy under £30.
Okay, so this one’s slightly over budget at £32, but those extra few pennies are totally worth it. No self-respecting chai latte fan’s kitchen is complete without one of these. It includes absolutely everything you’ll need to brew a beautifully fragrant, authentic chai latte at home in the traditional way. This Chai Latte Kit comes with 20g authentic, whole spice chai latte blend and an enamelware black tea pot to brew it to perfection. It also includes a fine mesh strainer to pour the delicious chai through – presented in a sustainable linen drawstring tote which is perfect for chai on the go! If you’re looking for the full works, including glasses, scoop and more chai, you’ll have to spend a little more – but it’s totally worth it.
They say variety is the spice of life – and we couldn’t agree more! Our fabulous chai latte bundle is one of our most popular products – and it’s easy to see why. It’s perfect for die-hard chai latte fans who just can’t get enough of the stuff – one blend isn’t enough!! Also idea for anyone who wants to try all three of our blends, but doesn’t want to commit to buying bigger bags just yet, until they know which one’s their favourite! This bundle contains all three of our best-selling chai latte blends – Original Masala Chai, Cacao Chai Latte and Turmeric Chai Latte. The Cacao and Turmeric blends are made with organic, raw cacao and turmeric – which means they are also caffeine-free.
On a bit of a tighter budget? Don’t worry. We’ve still got you covered with our gorgeous authentic chai latte blends, which all come in under £15. 100% vegan, whole spice and fully authentic, each blend has been lovingly made to our traditional recipe using ethically sourced ingredients. People say our chai blends are the closest they’ve found in the UK to their beloved mum’s recipe, or the pre-yoga cups of chai they enjoyed on their travels in India. (Don’t take our word for it, you can see our 5 star reviews here and here) ♡ Our 150g bags are £9.99 each (see bundle above for best value!). Our 250g are £12.99 each. This is also a great option if you’ve already bagged their main present, but want a little something on the side.
Chai latte gifts don’t have to be actual chai latte blends or accessories. They can also be skincare treats from super cool self care beauty brands – stuff you put on your body, not in it. If you’re a real fan of the beautiful fragrance and aromatherapy of an authentic chai latte blend, you’ll love this stuff. UpCircle are a brand with our core values at heart. . Their recipe uses organic, gentle ingredients and recycled chai spices for a super-sustainable, sensual bath-time treat. This soap is long lasting and beautifully balances the rich creaminess of chai with aromatic top notes of ginger and cinnamon. Also available in fennel and cardamom ♡
We absolutely love Vegan Bunny Co for a number of reasons. Firstly, it’s a female-owned, totally sustainable, 100% vegan company – just like us! Secondly, they make AMAZING candles that smell incredible, don’t contain any nasty toxic nonsense and leave a scent that lasts and lingers long after they’re finished. Vegan Bunny Co’s Chai Latte Candle is a must-have for anyone who loves chai latte (and candles). The candles are made using natural soy wax and pure essential oils. Available in different sizes to suit various budgets – all under £15!
