The Best Chai Lattes In Singapore To Try If You Have Exotic Taste Buds

Best Chai Lattes

The best Chai Latte is one where sweet and spicy is not too overwhelming but at the same time milky enough to balance the strong flavours out. For the uninitiated, Chai Latte is black tea infused with the aromatic goodness of spices and herbs and finished with steamed milk. This might not be everyone’s cup of tea and may very well be an acquired taste.

A staple in most Australian coffee shops, Chai Latte is not common in Singapore and it is even tougher to find a good one. Fuelled by our love for Chai Latte, we have made it our mission to suss out the best Chai Lattes in Singapore. Without further ado, here are the best Chai Lattes in Singapore according to an enthusiast.

Craftsmen Specialty Coffee Chai Latte


#1 CRAFTSMEN SPECIALITY COFFEE SIGLAP V


Having been around since 2014, Craftsmen Speciality Coffee has gone on to establish several outlets across the island. Here, the Chai Latte (S$6) is well-bodied and comes with a cinnamon stick for those who love that extra kick of spice.

Not enough spice for you? They’ve got you covered with their 7 Spice Chai Latte (S$7).

#2 PUNCH


The Chai Latte (S$6) here really packs, well, a punch. Slightly spicier than the usual Chai, it goes extremely well with their decadent Brownie Cookies sandwiched with some salted caramel buttercream (S$5). We wish it was a bigger cup of Chai, though.

 Toby's Estate Chai Latte


#6 TOBY’S ESTATE


Hailing from Sydney, Toby’s Estate has definitely perfected their Chai Latte (S$6). Robust and velvety, the cup of Chai was excellent. If you’re feeling more adventurous, try their Mocha Chai (S$6).

But for the purists, you can stick to the good ol’ Chai Latte.

Wimbly Lu Chai Latte


#7 WIMBLY LU 


Popular for their chocolate desserts, Wimbly Lu serves a pretty mean cup of Chai Latte (S$5). Accompanied by a cinnamon stick and a mini cookie, this cup of Chai was creamy and fragrant and leans more to the sweet side.
