description 

Deliciously warm, fragrant and spicy Masala Chai - it's one of life's great pleasures.  Many people think of Chai simply as a tea blend.  What we don't always think about are the health benefits that we might receive from it.  Ginger aids digestion & stomach upset.  Cardamom supports the immune system.  Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory.  Black tea is full of antioxidants and adds a little punch of caffeine.  Masala Chai, which translates to "mixed spice tea" has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.  There's a reason for that.

how to use

How you make your tea is a very personal thing.  We do find, though, that certain things work better for certain teas.  Our recommendation for preparing this Chai blend is to bring 12 oz of filtered water & 1 tablespoon of tea to a boil, turn the heat down and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes (depending on your preference), then strain.  Generally speaking, the longer tea steeps, the more bitter it gets.  If you drink chai without milk, 5 minutes should be perfect.  If you add milk & sweetener, aim for closer to 10 minutes of simmer time.

*Quality teas can typically be steeped 2-3 times  

Our favorite way to make tea is in a small french press.  Reusable tea bags, tea balls and tea strainers are also great for loose teas.
