To soda or not to soda, that's the question when trying this iced beverage featuring our Summer Chai Syrup. Chai, or in particular Masala Chai, is a generic term for a mixture of black tea with aromatic spices and comes in vast variety of flavor profiles. Ours is lighter on the winter warming spices so tends to prefer to be in iced drinks. Whether you mix this recipe with plain water or sparkling water is up to the taste buds of the particular pallet. It works wonderfully either way!
