Description

Look a bit different? We reformulated this blend in summer 2015 to create a creamier body and richer chocolate taste.

An enticing, chocolatey blend combining strong black tea, dark cocoa shells and nibs with creamy coconut and sarsaparilla for a rich, decadent cup. Designed to be infused straight like tea, or add milk and brew like traditional chai.


Tasting Notes

Decadent cacao and creamy sarsaparilla with rich coconut and bittersweet dandelion root.

Everyday Brewing

Water to Leaf Ratio
1 tbsp (4g) per 8 oz of water
Water Temperature
200°F
Steep Time
5 minutes

Traditional Brewing

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.

Ingredients

Organic black tea, organic coconut flakes, organic cinnamon, organic cocoa shells, organic sarsaparilla root, organic licorice root, organic cocoa nibs, organic roasted dandelion root, organic cloves, natural chocolate flavor.

Origin

A Rishi Tea Blend

Owner Response: Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your review and suggestions on our Chocolate Chai. Our blenders were hard at work reforming many offerings in 2015 to ensure a smooth and consistent cup of tea. Chocolate Chai underwent a larger reform and is now blended with black tea. If you are interested in a chai with a similar pu-erh and cocoa base, we recommend our Vanilla Mint Chai. Rishi's emerald green tins are made of tin plate and are 100% recyclable. So please feel free to recycle through conventional means or use the tin for future tea storage. We sincerely appreciate your feedback on the new blend and tins. Your notes were shared with the rest of the team to use in future updates! -Rishi
