Chai Tea BBQ Sauce Recipe

This summer we are bringing you a collection of tea inspired recipes to give you some fun and exciting ways to incorporate your favourite tea flavours into some tasty treats.


Why Chai

Some marinades and sauces often use coffee or espresso to infuse extra flavour, so we thought what better than our authentic, rich and warming Masala Chai to pack a punch to your summer bbq sauce.

This Great Taste award-winning loose leaf tea balances bold Assam leaves with traditionally grown Indian spices, including ginger, cinnamon, green cardamom and cloves, that bring a distinct flavour profile to dishes. The warm spices accompanied by the sweet and spicy chai are a perfect balance for topping burgers, grilled fish and more.

For a sweeter and fruiter flavour, Chai of Madagascar imparts a sweeter spicy aroma, with notes of orange with cacao and vanilla pieces.
