New Flavors Spice Up Oregon Chai
Oregon Chai is launching two new products: Chocolate Chai and Not- So-Sweet Chai. Chocolate Chai combines Oregon Chai’s sweet, spicy chai recipe and Ghirardelli cocoa, creating a smooth alternative to mochas and hot chocolate. Not-So-Sweet Chai is a low sugar beverage with a light, mildly sweet flavor. The new products join Oregon Chai’s line of “just add milk” concentrates.

“As we innovate, we’re very conscious of consumer needs and preferences-existing consumers and potential customers as well,” says Heather Howitt, c.e.o. “Chocolate Chai is a fantastic flavor that will also attract people unfamiliar with chai. Not-So-Sweet Chai is a great product that will also appeal to those watching sugar in their diets.”

The firm’s first product, Original Chai, continues to lead both the chai and tea categories, states the company.

Chocolate Chai and Not-So-Sweet Chai are made with organic and all-natural ingredients. The two newest offerings by Oregon Chai are both kosher-certified, and are available in 32-oz aseptic packaging.
