This is a complex chai with wonderful taste! Its base is a lush and full-bodied black Assam, in order to impart the
chai a wonderful depth. Next, white chocolate, caramel, and a heady blend of spices from the Malabar Coast of India were added to the mix – sharp ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, and black pepper. Finally, calendula petals and elder blossoms were added to give the blend some color.
The result, we’re sure you’ll agree, is one of our most intoxicating blends. It is at once rich and astringent, with pleasant overtures of spice. The traditional chai preparation method is to brew the tea in scalded whole milk with a bit of sugar in order to bring out its full spiciness. This preparation will give you something close to the chai latte you would get at a coffee shop. Alternatively, brew in water as usual, and add a bit of milk and sugar for a lighter option.
