Is Dutch Bros Chai Good?

The Dutch Bros Chai range is one of their most popular drink categories and they even use them as featured drinks for their brand.

You get to choose between a huge variety of chai-flavored drinks. 

Each of them has slightly different flavors, but I think the chai flavors are what make them all the more special.

What Chai Does Dutch Bros Use?

They use a chai concentrate from Oregon Chai

The rich, spicy flavors of black tea, clove, cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger are packed into this easy-to-add concentrate.

You know what they say, all great drinks start with great ingredients. If you’re thinking of making your own Chai drinks, I recommend starting with the Oregon chai premix.


Dutch Bros Chai drinks are super popular with their customers.

I’ve compiled a list of their best ones so you can get an idea of what you’re in for when you order and customize your drink!

Make Dutch Bros Chai Your Way

If Dutch Bros have taught us one thing, it’s that there are so many ways with Chai! The great news is that it’s easy to give these drinks your own flair!

Mix Cold Foam Ingredients

Toppings

If you’re a fan of iced chai drinks, you absolutely have to top it off with a soft top.

You can buy the same soft top Dutch Bros uses online which is Rich’s On Top®. 

A chai latte, iced or hot, would not be the same without a little bit more added spice.

I like to add some sprinkles or extra cinnamon and nutmeg to really bring out that delicious chai-ness. 

Milk Options

Half and half is richer and creamier because – let’s be real – it has a higher fat content than full cream or 2% milk.

If you’re a fan of richer, creamer chai drinks, you should try out Dutch Bros’ kick-me-mix

Looking to treat yourself but want to watch that calorie count? Swap the full-cream stuff for almond milk or non-fat milk. Oat milk(1) is also great for a tasty vegan option.

Make It Dirty

Coffee and chai are two flavor combinations that we know work well together. If you want to make any Dutch Bros chai drink dirty, simply ask the bro-ista to add a shot of espresso. 

Domino shots are also a Dutch Bros specialty! Basically, it’s just a shot of white coffee and one shot of regular espresso – some days you just need caffeine, chai, and more caffeine.

Add More Flavors

Really want to add your own spin to your Dutch Bros chai beverage? Try playing around with different taste profiles. 

For example, white mocha sauce or hazelnut syrups are my favorite flavors pair with my chai-flavored drinks. I also like to add extra depth to my Dutch Bros drinks by adding hints of chocolate and caramel. 


Summary

Dutch Bros Chai

I love the Dutch Bros Chai menu and all the different flavor combos they use. 

But, who ever said there’s anything wrong with wanting to add your own, personal touch to their already-epic drinks? 


FAQs

Does Dutch Bros have blended chai?

Dutch Bros do have blended chai which can, in fact, be ice blended. 

Anyone ordering from Dutch Bros can ask a friendly bro-ista to make your drink frozen or even frost style if you’re feeling fancy.

Does Dutch Bros chai have sugar?

Dutch Bros use Oregon chai which has sugar added to their blends. 

Most Dutch Bros sauces and syrups also contain sugar so if you have a preference, ask the bro-ista if they carry a sugar-free replacement.

What’s a chai tea Breve?

A chai tea Breve is a tea latte that’s made with half and half as a substitute for milk. 

It’s much richer and creamier than other milk options and is what gives Dutch Bros Chai drinks the velvety texture we love so much.
