Chai (Black tea, cardamom, anise, cinnamon, ginger, pepper cloves)
Chai is the Hindi word for ‘tea’, which originates from the Chinese word ‘cha’. The traditional ingredients of this spiced tea elixir is black tea mixed with strong spices, including cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger and black peppercorns. Like both tea and coffee these spices are grown throughout the world’s tropical zones. If you are a lover of coffee, you will be familiar with the term ‘Latte’; it is Italian for ‘milk’. So as the name suggests this chai base is an elixir to be mixed with hot or cold milk.
Our Chai Latte Elixir is a wonderful mix of herbs and spices and faithfully replicates this unique and distinctly Asian flavour. You will find it a great alternative or substitute for conventional tea and coffee. This elixir is a quick and easy way to create an Asian classic that usually requires grinding and mixing a concoction of spices. Sweet, spicy and delicious, like many others, you may just find this blend becomes your favourite pick-me-up beverage for every day.
