rooibos vanilla chai

rooibos vanilla chai

Masala chai spices in a South African rooibos herb base, with a hint of vanilla. This blend of rooibos vanilla, ginger, cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon pieces will dance on your palate and sing to your soul. Beautiful clear and bright cup, with a crisp and tangy-sweet flavor. The heat of the spices is balanced beautifully with the natural smooth, mellow quality of the rooibos. Naturally caffeine free for an anytime treat.We suggest two heaping teaspoons per 6 oz cup, boiling water for 7-10 minutes. Sugar, cream or soy if desired.

Steep at 212° for 7-10 minutes.

ingredients & lore

blended with rooibos tea, ginger root, cinnamon bark, cloves, cardamom pods, orange peels and natural vanilla flavor
Historically, tea in India was viewed as an herbal medicine, rather than as a beverage for taste. Some chai spice blends still in current use are derived from Ayurvedic medical texts. Popular spices include anise, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, peppercorn and ginger. Traditional preparation actually calls for the spices, milk and leaves to be simmered over sustained heat, rather than steeped in preheated water (like regular tea). In India, chai is served in little clay cups from chai carts. After enjoying your tea, the cups are shattered on the ground and allowed to compost - an earth-friendly alternative to the paper and plastic cups popular in the U.S.
