Our Decaf Chai tea blend combines premium Ceylon black tea with cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. Our interpretation brings a decaf option to the typical Masala Chai with a warm and inviting fragrance, zesty flavor and invigorating, aromatic finish. We suggest two heaping teaspoons per 8 oz cup. Sugar or milk if desired.
A gentle, natural decaffeination process retains the delicate shape and flavor of the tea leaves. Our decaf teas are decaffeinated using the superior carbon dioxide (CO2) process, which retains the most flavor and antioxidants.

Chai is a popular style of tea preparation in India. The process includes steeping tea (typically black Mamri tea, which has been cut down into small tea pellets) directly in milk or water with sugar and spices like cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, peppercorn, nutmeg, and cloves. In traditional Indian chai tea, water buffalo milk is used instead of cow’s milk. The specific spice recipe, or karha, varies from house to house and shop to shop. Chai is also commonly sold by street vendors known as chai wallahs, who in turn have their own unique karha recipes.
