Here at Aura Chai we’re advocates of authentic chai latte. The slow brew, softly savoured, self-caring, ritualistic nature of real chai. It only takes 10 minutes to brew a delicious cup of Aura Chai – but we recommend taking as long as possible to enjoy it. But we also know that time is precious – and you don’t always have enough of it to sit and brew your fave chai. If this is you, fear not! Sometimes life gets in the way of your daily rituals – and that’s okay!
In life it’s rare to be able to have your cake and eat it. You know, getting that thing you want, with no compromise. It’s rare, but it’s not impossible! ‘I never get that lucky’ – you say. Well it’s your lucky day, because this is one of those occasions.
This authentic chai latte concentrate recipe means you can enjoy the best of both worlds. It means you can make quick and easy chai latte without compromising on flavour or health benefits. This easy chai concentrate recipe makes enough chai for 100 servings – and lasts up to a month as long as it’s kept in an airtight container. With this recipe you get the most authentic, home made chai latte flavour without buying loads of spices and tea. You don’t need fancy equipment or loads of ingredients – in fact, there are only two ingredients in this recipe. Ready? Let’s go!
Easy Chai Latte Concentrate Recipe
- Aura Chai Original Chai Latte Blend (click here to buy!)
- Filtered water
1/ Add 100g Aura Chai Original Chai Latte blend to a medium-sized saucepan. You’ll want a proper saucepan for this, and not your chai tea pot, unless you only want to make a tiny amount. This means you can make a good-sized batch which will last for up to two weeks. Top up with 1 litre hot water and turn on a medium heat.
2/ Allow the chai mixture to gently simmer for around 20-30 minutes. Be careful not to let it boil, as this can impair the flavour of the tea. Fair warning: this process will make your home smell HEAVENLY. It’s a great way to infuse your kitchen (and the rest of your house!) the intoxicatingly aromatic fragrance of fresh chai spices.
3/ Once brewed, strain the chai liquid into a jug. It should be a really rich, dark brown colour and smell AMAZING.
4/ Allow the chai concentrate to cool before decanting into an airtight container – ideally a glass bottle.
5/ Store your chai latte concentrate in an airtight bottle (Kilner-style bottles are perfect) in a cool, dark place. It will keep for up to a month but is best enjoyed within two weeks.
