  • If it helps, I know that Starbucks uses Tazo Chai concentrate to make thier Chai. I have purchased it at Starbucks before.

  • you can also get the tazo concentrate at some grocery stores. the box has good directions... use skim milk for non fat version. can get an espresso machine at walmart for around $30, i think the instructions came with recipes.

  • Starbucks uses a premade chai concentrate. They add milk and heat it. Traditional chai is made by boiling the tea in 1 part water and 2 parts milk with sugar, not honey. Honey is never cooked in real Indian food. After the tea is boiled for 30 mins. it is strained to remove the tea leaves. You can store it covered in the fridge for up to 8 days. It can be reheated on the stove or in the microwave.

    A 20 oz mocha is made with 3 shots espresso, 2 oz (white) chocolate syrup, and 14 oz steamed milk. You can use regular dark chocolate or white chocolate.

    Your specs require skim milk for all of these things.
