Velvety, mellow and deep, this chai is an enticing blend of energizing pu-erh tea, shade-grown yerba maté, and cacao. Made even more inviting by creamy vanilla, nutty coconut and fruity, pungent and uplifting Ayurvedic long pepper, Chocolate Chai is a most sophisticated take on hot cocoa.

Tasting Notes: A velvety and indulgent blend of rich Pu-erh tea, enlivening yerba maté and sweet cacao

Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ pu-erh tea, organic roasted cocoa nibs, organic roasted dandelion root, organic yerba maté, organic coconut flakes, organic long pepper, organic cardamom, organic vanilla bean.

Additional Info: Masala Chai, or "mixed-spice tea," is a rich spiced tea latte traditional to South Asia. We source and curate the finest teas, herbs and spices at peak season, which are chopped, crushed or ground to release their essential characters and combined in micro-batch blends to harmonize for flavor complexity.

Rishi Tea Blend
Mix 2 tbsp chai, 1 cup water, and 1 cup milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sugar or sweetener to taste. Strain into a mug or pitcher and enjoy! Chai can also be enjoyed over ice.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

I am a chai junkie- always on the prowl for something exciting and flavorful. I have found my ultimate flavor in Rishi Chocolate Chai. It is a full-bodied, layered, complex and uniquely delicious cup of chai. I am absolutely hooked!!!

This tea is very flavorful and softly invigorating. It has a mildly nutty flavor, and is very smooth. A great treat for the 2:00 PM workday slump.

Do not expect an overwhelming chocolate blast here. True to Rishi style, this is a rich, complex blend whose individual tastes seem to pop out once in awhile and then return to the complexity of the mix. The puerh tea takes a prominent role as it enters into a lively jazz duet with the chocolate, with great supporting performances by the other flavors. Sublime and subtle. Absolutely brilliant.

Maybe I just got some from a bad batch, but the only flavor present in mine is cardamom. No tea, cocoa, coconut, vanilla, or anything but cardamom. Don't get me wrong, I like cardamom, but not enough to drink a whole cup of this. To use it up, I'll have to mix it with another strong spice tea.

This is a subtle, complex, rich blend. We are not hit with a strong blast of chocolate, but instead brought into a kind of unfolding interactive dynamic between the puerh tea, the chocolate, the yerba mate and all the enhancing spices and flavors. It is delicious.

This was the first of the chai samples that I tried. At the time, it seemed like a nice mild blend that, sadly, lacked a bit in the chocolate department. My second sample was Masala, which leaped out of the cup at me. After drinking that, I was a bit less keen on the chocolate. If you like your chai mild though, this is a good one.

By Nick H on January 31, 2014

This chocolate chai blend really is awesome. A few of the reviews say that the chocolate flavor isn't strong enough, and that maybe true... But what I do is I add about a teaspoon of cocoa powder while the tea is simmering, and the. A teaspoon of truvia when I take it away from the heat right before straining. It makes it absolutely amazing!! Please do yourself a favor and buy this!

This was a warm cup of perfect. I do agree that the cacao isn't very strong, but if chocolate is what you're looking for, then make yourself some hot chocolate instead. All the flavors compliment one another well, and I will make this one a staple in my pantry.

Chocolate Chai Muffins

"I recommend using Rishi Tea's Chocolate Chai for this recipe, but you can substitute two tablespoons looseleaf chai tea or two teabags to make these simple but sensational muffins."

—Gina De Roma, author of The Philosopher's Spoon


Ingredients:

1 cup milk 1 cup water
2 tablespoons Rishi Chocolate Chai tea
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 stick of butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix milk, water and tea in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Strain tea through a mesh strainer into a container. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.

Preheat oven to 400°F

Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper cupcake liners. Set aside

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well mixed. Set aside.

Measure out 1 cup of the prepared chai tea.

In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, 1 cup of the chai tea, the brown sugar, butter and vanilla. Whisk together until thoroughly mixed.

Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir together until just combined (do not overmix). Don't worry if the batter isn't smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes before removing from pan. I let them cool to room temperature in the pan and they were delicious.

Makes 12 muffins
