iChai2 Sticky Chai Frequently Asked Questions:
HOW DO I BREW MY STICKY CHAI?
Cover the base of your Chai pot with 1cm of water. Add I tbsp of iChai2 sticky chai and let heat for a minute. Add 200ml of milk (I prefer Almond) . Let this steep for 3-5 minutes or until the aroma tickles your nose (do not boil) Strain and serve. Find a cosy spot and enjoy.
WHAT IS YOUR SHIPPING METHOD?
We use Australia Post. Your Chai will arrive in a satchel. If you wish your parcel to be left if you are not at home, please include that with your order details.
DO YOU SHIP OVERSEAS?
No we don't. Australian addresses only.
DO YOU EXPRESS POST?
Yes we do. You can select this in the shipping section. Prices vary.
DOES IT MATTER WHAT MILK I USE?
NO. I prefer almond and I make my own. Its cheap, insecticide free and delicious. You can use whatever you wish however. iChai2 is best brewed on milk as it brings out the flavour of the spices and it lessens the bitterness of the black tea.
DOES CHAI HAVE CAFFEINE?
Our Signature & Vegan Blends do, yes. However there is an amino acid in tea that works with the caffeine to relax the body. Additionally the high levels of antioxidants slow the absorption of caffeine, meaning a gentler spike and longer alertness.
