About Us


Black Rooster is a recipe of spices and seasonings, slowly simmered down to a concentrated syrup. Designed primarily as a chai latte concentrate, it is also versatile as a rich flavour base in baking and marinades.

Conceived at Solar Café on Waiheke Island (2012 - 2020) in 2014 by owners Chris Lambert and Sue Gardner. Every batch is still hand made by us to ensure utmost consistency and quality.

For a chai latte experience that is rich, aromatic, decadent and moreish, go local and choose Black Rooster.
