  • Tazo Classic Chai Latte: A black tea concentrate is made with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and vanilla. This is the same brand of chai concentrate that Starbucks uses at their stores.
  • Milk: Starbucks makes their iced chai latte with 2% milk but you can use any kind of milk you like, including oat and almond.

Expert Tips

  • The Tazo chai concentrate is sweetened so no need to add any extra sugar, but if you do want it sweeter, add simple syrup since it’ll mix in the best.
  • Not all chai concentrates are the same since every company makes their own chai blend using a range of different spices. Stick with the Tazo brand if you want it to taste like the one at Starbucks.
  • You can add ice first, then the chai concentrate and the milk, but if you want it perfectly mixed without stirring, put the chai concentrate and milk in first, then the ice.
  • Starbucks uses 4 ingredients to make their Iced Chai Tea Latte in store: Tazo chai concentrate, water, milk, and ice. The Tazo chai concentrate used at Starbucks locations is made with less water so it’s a lot more concentrated and stronger than the packaged Tazo chai concentrate sold in stores. They add extra water to dilute the chai concentrate when making the drink at the store.
  • A delicious way to customize this drink is to add brown sugar syrup and swap out 2% milk with oat milk.
  • Make the drink extra delicious by topping it off with Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam.

Questions You May Have

Yes, there’s caffeine in black tea, which is used to make the chai concentrate.

What does iced chai tea latte taste like?

What does chai mean?

Chai translates to tea! So it’s actually wrong to say “chai tea” since you’re saying “tea tea.”
