Love Chai? We’ve made it easy to taste the best chai offerings across Newcastle with this guide!

How good is Chai? When it’s made well it can hit the spot consistently every single time!  

Derived from the Mandarin Chinese term ‘cha’, which simply means tea, Chai is a crowd favourite with orders like chai, chai latte, and even a dirty chai consistently hitting our cafes.

The HUNTERhunter team are always ranking our Chai orders from across the many Newcastle cafes, so, we thought we would put the question to you, how and where do you, Chai?

We asked... You answered... We've delivered the ultimate guide to Chai in Newcastle. You’re welcome…
