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.

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.

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.

Normally I really do not like the flavor of rooibos, but I only taste the chai spices in this tea. The flavor is really good, I'd say four stars out of five stars. I was hoping this could be a replacement for the turmeric chai (five out of five stars), which is no longer available.

This herbal chai is so delicious! I can't think of starting my morning any other way. There is a good amount of spice and heat that is just right. Thank you Rishi!

This is THE best caffeine herbal chai Rooibos on the market. I have tried every other brand I could get my hands on , and none of them drink like a real chai. This is THE best rooibos chai, and better than many regular black tea chai on the market as well. NEVER stop making this tea Rishi, I love it so much.

Not a big milk fan. Poured water just off the boil over 1tsp and steeped four minutes. Delicious round coffee/chocolate notes; pepper adds definition but not heat.
