With aromatic cinnamon and health-boosting ginger, it’s no wonder Chai Tea has won over our tea-sipping hearts. At Pekoe, we brew our chai fresh all day long and sweeten it to taste. But not all chai is created equal, and that’s what makes this variety of tea so wonderful: you get to pick the chai that fits your style.

At Pekoe Sip House, we brew all four different types of chai tea at our three locations in Boulder.

What’s your Chai Style?

  • House Chai {wholesome energy} – You’re a smooth operator, a believer in traditions, a celebrator of holidays, especially those that serve pumpkin pie. (Another slice, please!) Feel the vibes: House Chai offers an uplifting blend of cinnamon, cardamom and cloves with ginger, suited for anyone in hot pursuit of a life well lived.

 

  • Spicy Green Chai {nourishing energy} – You’re boldly modern, walking to the beat of your own drum, unapologetically you, a vibrant go-getter. You love the intersection of wow-worthy history with made-in-the-now future. Feel the flair: This tea suits you, having blended Green tea from China with the well-known flavors of chai: cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cardamom.

 

  • Rooibos Chai {wholesome nourishment} – You’re understated and, at times, mysterious. But when people get to know you, they like you. Almost instantly. Because you’re good people. Feel the calm: Rooibos Chai offers a caffeine-free, full-bodied experience to anyone who takes the time to get to know this replenishing chai tea.

 

  • Mate Chai {energized vitality} – You go after what you want, you aren’t afraid to express yourself. You face each new day with gusto and prefer your tea do the same. Feel the buzz: Your cup of mate chai offers an invigorating pick-you-up without compromising the melding flavors of mate green tea, cinnamon, cloves, and lemongrass.

At Pekoe Sip House, we brew all four different types of chai tea at all three Pekoe Sip House locations in Boulder. And we do so in small batches to ensure fresh, great taste and bold flavors.

Chai tea is great served iced and enjoyed post-workout too.

Chai Tea is great iced on a hot Boulder day. You can also stop in for our Chia Chai Smoothie, blended with chia seeds, banana, agave, and almond milk. It’s a perfect go-to for post-workout recovery, with both the chia seeds and banana offering your body the vitamins and minerals, like magnesium and potassium, it needs.

Make your own chia chai smoothie at home.

Stop by and pick up Pekoe loose leaf chai tea for home-brewing. Once brewed, add your favorite milk, sweetener like agave, chia seeds, and a banana to a blender. Add a dash or two of cinnamon to help fight inflammation. Then blend until smooth. Enjoy!

 TIP: You can also grab our Bottled Chai teas to expedite the smoothie making process.

Fun Fact: The words “Chai” and “Tea” mean the same thing. Chai Tea nowadays in American culture is thought of as a spicy, creamy kind of tea — and nearly always thought of as a latte.

We encourage you to try our full-bodied loose leaf chai teas, or opt for one of our chai tea lattes, made to order. Consider this your invitation to sip, savor, and relax with the perfect cup by your side.

How do you take your chai tea?
