The Heart of the Blend
Our chai is a symphony of handpicked ingredients, each contributing its distinct note to the overall melody:
Black Tea: Serving as the base, the full-bodied black tea offers a deep, malty backdrop, ensuring a strong and invigorating brew.
Cinnamon: This aromatic bark introduces a sweet-spicy warmth, reminiscent of cozy winter evenings by the fireside.
Cardamom: Often referred to as the ‘queen of spices’, cardamom bestows a fragrant, slightly citrusy undertone that is both refreshing and exotic.
Cloves: These tiny spice buds pack a punch, offering a bold, peppery zing that stimulates the senses.
Star Anise: Adding a touch of licorice sweetness, star anise provides depth and a hint of delicate fennel-like aroma.
Black Pepper: Grounding the blend, black pepper introduces a subtle heat, elevating the chai's warmth and spiciness.
In today’s wellness-driven digital landscape, our Authentic Chai Blend boasts numerous health benefits:
