I just moved to LA and am addicted to Chai Tea - my favortie comfort food. I'm looking for the best place in LA to get Chai (not Starbucks!!). Please Help!

  1. Go to Bilal Halal restaurant in Inglewood right off of West Manchester Blvd. in Airport Plaza. The owners, Farooq and Malik Bhai prepare delicious Chai (black tea) and many times serve it for free with any meal. Check out there lunch special.

          I seem to remember the Bourgeois Pig on Franklin having good chai, but it's been a while.

        2. also, when you just want it quick and easy at home, trader joes "spiced chai latte" (add water) is pretty yummy!
          i always have some on hand.

            I like the Oregon Chai Kashmir Green Tea concentrate at Trader Joe's -- mixed with soy milk and served cold.

          2. I find Oregon Chai a bit too sweet, but I do love Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's Chai Tea -- you can buy the loose tea mix with spices. Put some in the bottom of a French press, add a combo of half milk/half water after its been heated, let steep and then add some Vanilla Powder from Coffee Bean.
