This traditional drink of India has a distinctively, delicious taste. It combines a mixture of organic black teas along with sweet and zesty organic spices including cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves to create a uniquely rich and spicy beverage.
Cardamom in this yummy tea is used to neutralize the acids and stimulating effects of caffeine in the black tea and to make heavy and acidic foods such as milk easier to digest. (Plus, it tastes good.)
Chai tea is usually sweetened, so try adding a pinch of stevia, a dash of vanilla, or my favorite, milk or (milk substitute such as coconut or almond milk.) It tastes great whether served hot or cold!
Ingredients: Organic China Black F.O.P. tea, organic cinnamon, organic Assam tea, organic cardamom seed, organic cloves, organic ginger root, and organic black pepper.
Flowery Orange Pekoe (F.O.P.) refers to a high-quality whole leaf tea with a long leaf and good balance of tips. FOP contains fine, tender young leaves with buds (referred to as tips) and is made from the first two leaves and bud of the shoot. When harvested during the slow growth periods, these young buds have a golden tip, hence the grade 'Flowery', thus making it Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP).
Daily serving size: Add 1 tea bag to 8 oz of boiling water (212°F). Steep 4-5 minutes. Add 2 oz of hot milk (or dairy substitute), and sweeten with stevia, honey or sugar to taste.
