Fun FAQs about Chaga Chai:

Can I drink Chaga Chai every day?

Yes, you can! Chaga is known for its antioxidant properties and may support immune health. However, it's always good to talk with a healthcare provider before starting any new health regimen.

Does Chaga Chai contain caffeine?

Yes, it does. The black tea in this recipe provides a caffeine boost. However, if you're sensitive to caffeine, you can always opt for a caffeine-free version of black tea.

Can I make Chaga Chai with plant-based milk?

Absolutely! You can use any milk of your choice. Almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or soy milk would all work well in this recipe.

Does the Elixir Mixer really make a difference in the recipe?

The Elixir Mixer (handheld electric whisk or frother) adds a creamy, frothy texture to the milk, making the Chaga Chai extra indulgent and delicious.

Can I serve Chaga Chai cold?

Yes, you can serve it cold as an iced Chaga Chai. However, the frothy milk texture might diminish once it's cooled. You could froth cold milk to add after the tea has cooled for a chilled, frothy experience

Why is Using the Elixir Mixer Great for Whisking Any Drink?

Utilizing the Elixir Mixer, a bottle with a built-in electric whisk, elevates the experience of making this elixir. It ensures a smooth, perfectly integrated blend of all the flavors, resulting in a creamy, frothy texture that's essential for any great drink.
