Vegan Chai Time!
You asked and we answered! We have been inundated by requests since our launch to sell our signature Vegan Chai on SO espresso. So, consider this a present! Our Chai has been a customer favourite for many, many years at Soul Origin. The flavour is super delicious and if you haven’t tried it already, we can’t wait for you to give it a go! It’s also completely vegan so if you’re plant-based or unable to have dairy it is the perfect Chai for you.
Chai originated hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Created in India, Chai was referred to as ‘Masala Chai’ meaning mixed spice tea. This is the perfect description of Chai Tea. However, like with any coffee or tea recipe, it has developed and changed into completely different recipes. Originally herbal tea, the Chai Latte or an Iced Chai is more of a milk-based beverage. The Chai Latte didn’t become very “mainstream” until the 1990’s in the US. Since then, it has evolved even further, with the Chai Latte and Iced Chai’s being a staple on almost every local café menu.
