Frequently Asked Questions
• Why do we need to boil the chai blend?
Aahaa Chai blend is made of all natural ingredients, so it is important to boil it a little longer than usual to extract all the flavors, nutrients and minerals embedded in the spices.
• What kind of milk is preferred?
Since we use only a tbsp. for our preparations we prefer to use whole milk. Whole milk has the right amount of creaminess to extract all the flavors in the spices and minimal amount of calories (9 calories per tbsp of whole milk)
• What kind of sugar to use?
We prefer using brown sugar for our preparations. Brown sugar has a unique flavor to it and a little bit more minerals that add flavor to the chai.
• Why does my chai taste very mild?
Since our Chai blends are hand crafted and blended in small batches the ingredients sometimes have the tendency to settle down with small particles at the bottom. So we recommend mixing the blend every time you scoop. Also, depending the stove you use the heating can vary quite a bit, so we recommend boiling for longer duration to increase the spiciness of the Chai.
I want to make larger batch concentrate like I see at your booths at Binford Farmers Market. Can you send me instructions for making larger batches so I have it ready to go on those morning that I don’t have time to boiling a cup.
For large batches, use our 1 oz bags and boil it in 1/2 gallon of water. Taste it periodically to check the strength of the brew and cool it down when ready and leave it in the refrigerator. Use it as a concentrate and prepare your cup with 4 oz of concentrate and 4 oz of water or milk substitute and heat it or enjoy it over ice. Thanks for asking!!
Love your product. I’ve been lucky to have it served from numerous coffee shops while visiting Indiana. Being from out of state, I’ll need make my own concentrate. The label on the gallon jug of Maharani’s Bold Masala Chai concentrate says it contains brown sugar. How much brown sugar would I put in a gallon of concentrate to approximate the gallon concentrate recipe? Would the gallon use two ounces of Maharani’s loose leaf chai? After brewing the concentrate, do the leaves get removed before or after the refrigerator?
