Chaiwala Tiger Tips

  • If you’re using dairy, whole milk works best.
  • Oat milk is the best milk substitute for saffron chai. If you’re using plant based milk, the exact ratio of water to plant based milk will depend on its consistency and thickness.
  • If you want your chai sweet, sugar tastes better than honey. Add it when you’re preparing your chai on the stovetop.
  • If you want iced chai, prepare it as you would usually would over a stovetop, then strain and stick it in the refrigerator for a few hours. When chilled, serve over ice.

The amount of tea was very minimal, it only covered the bottom of the tin. I would have to by 4 or 5 packages to actually fill the tin. The Blue tea was tasty.


Love this Chai tea! Very tasty and smooth. Wanted to try, since I grew up having Saffron bread. Chai teas are one of my favorite types of teas.

Tea-riffic Q&A Sips

Saffron green tea is an excellent antioxidant, relieves acute stress and is a mood enhancer. If you are looking for a delicious blend, try out Kashmiri Kahwa which is a beautiful tea with green tea, saffron, rose petals, almonds and heartwarming spices.

Yes, saffron is considered the most expensive spice in the world. The high price is because of its scarcity and the labor intensive process required to manually harvest saffron as it is derived from the stigmas of the saffron flower- Crocus sativus. Saffron is also grown in a handful of countries like India, Iran, Afghanistan, Greece, Morocco and Italy. At Herbs & Kettles we use natural and authentic saffron and not artificial flavoring so that you can not only savor its flavor but also enjoy its health benefits.

Our saffron chai has moderate caffeine, while our Kashimiri Kahwa has low caffeine.
