Does Chai Latte & Sticky Chai Have Caffeine?
Chai Latte & Sticky Chai have taken the coffeehouse scene by storm, offering a warm, fragrant, and comforting alternative to traditional coffee and tea beverages.
What Is Chai Latte & Sticky Chai
Chai Latte, originating from India, is a traditional spiced tea made from a combination of black tea, aromatic spices, milk & sweeteners. The word "chai" itself simply means "tea" in Hindi, while "latte" refers to the addition of milk.
Sticky Chai is a modern spiced tea that has a wet-like texture in the product, which resulted from soaking the tea with honey (or other sweeteners) to create the sticky texture. Since both traditional milk & honey are animal byproducts, most Sticky Chai on the market are not vegan-friendly or dairy-free.
Meanwhile, our Original Sticky Chai is made with coconut nectar instead of honey & doesn't contain milk, which makes our product 100% vegan-friendly, gluten-free & dairy-free ⭐
Caffeine Content In Chai Latte & Sticky Chai
It short terms, it depends if they have black tea or not in their blends.
If they do have black tea, there is caffeine content.
If they don't have black tea, there is no caffeine content.
While black tea contains caffeine, the dilution of the tea with milk, together with the presence of spices & other ingredients, will reduce the overall caffeine concentration.
For comparison, a typical 8 oz / 237 ml cup of Chai Latte or Sticky Chai that uses black tea in their brew contains 25-50 mg of caffeine, depending on the recipe.
Meanwhile, a regular 8 oz / 237 ml cup of coffee, which uses a single shot of espresso, typically contains around 75-100 mg of caffeine.
However, there are rising in demand & popularity for chai latte blends that does not contain black tea at all, which contains 0 mg of caffeine.
Caffeine-Free Chai Latte
