My Favourite Chai Latte @ Jamaica Blue

I like to think of myself as a bit of a Chai Latte conoisseur having tried many in my time (well over the last 6 years or so since I discovered them anyway).  From franchises like Gloria Jeans to The Coffee Club and even the little independent coffee shops, these places have nothing on the Chai Latte at Jamaica Blue.  Sick of being continuously disappointed with syrupy and spicy Chai Latte’s at other coffee shops I don’t order them anywhere but Jamaica Blue anymore.  The team at Jamaica Blue Cairns Central (particularly Mel) make the BEST Chai Latte’s I have ever tasted.  Forget the syrupy crap that some places insist on serving, powdered Chai all the way!  Yeah ok, I realise this isn’t the traditional or authentic type Chai but it’s sooooo good!  And…although I’m not lactose intolerant, I do prefer Soy with my Chai because it makes it taste a little creamier.  Get a Chai in ya!

  1. I also like to think of myself as a Chai Latte conoissur and I would have to say not powder but leaf all the way! Which is usually hard to come accross and freshly brewed tea leaf is preferred. Tbar in Adelaide make a beautiful leaf chai latte and as a new resident of Cairns I have been on the hunt for a good Chai. After searching high and low and after many cups if Chai I have found that Candy Cafe Bar on Grafton St. live up to my expectations of a good chai latte made with leaf Chai tea! Highly recommend a try 🙂

    • Hi Anna 🙂 sounds like I will have to get my butt over to Candy and try their Chai. I also recommend the Chai at Ever After (they use leaves). It’s yummy!
