We’ve teamed up with our pals at local chocolate maker Chocosol to blend this freshly ground, seasonal chai with freshly roasted cacao shells. This chai steeps to a light colour, and features a prominent cacao flavour.
Quick Chai: Measure 1 tsp of loose tea and add to a tea filter or strainer (or use one tea bag). Steep in 8-12 oz freshly boiled water for 5 minutes. Add a splash of milk and sweeten if desired.
Traditional Method: Add two tea bags to a pot with 5oz water, and 5oz milk. Heat and stir and bring to a bare simmer. Reduce heat (the liquid should stay hot, but never boil) and let steep for 15 - 30 minutes. Remove bags, or strain loose tea using a fine mesh strainer into a mug. This longer steeping method produces a spicier and 'fuller' final product. Sweeten if desired.
Iced Chai Recipe: Steep 2 tsp (or two tea bags) of this tea in 6oz freshly boiled water for 5 minutes. Sweeten if desired. At this point you can chill the tea in the freezer for 10 minutes (remove tea leaves or tea bags first) or pour into a glass over ice slowly. (The ice will partially dissolve) Add chilled milk of your choice and enjoy! Delicious served with a cinnamon sugar rim.
