Description

Rich red rooibos, along with sweet cinnamon and aromatic cardamom, impart a familiar taste to this caffeine free chai blend. Enlivening star anise mixes with assertive ginger, floral and pungent black pepper and the roasted coffee-like character of ramón nut to produce a truly original anytime chai. With its dark red infusion, West Cape Chai is the perfect base for lattes and innovative café drinks.

Tasting Notes

Sweet, soothing West Cape rooibos balanced by exotic masala spices

Ingredients

Organic rooibos, organic cinnamon, organic ginger root, organic cardamom, organic ramón nut, organic star anise, organic licorice root, organic fennel seed, organic black pepper, organic cloves, organic peppermint.

Preparation

Leaf Amount
4 grams | 1 tbsp
Water Amount
8 ounces
Water Temperature
200°F
Steep Time
5-7 minutes
sweeten + add milk to taste

Traditional Preparation

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.

Standard Brewing:
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes

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.
