Vanilla Chai Loose Leaf Tea
Vanilla Chai: The Vanilla Chai Tea blend is a blend using a rich, black tea (usually Assam), and then loaded with traditional spices like cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, pepper, and then finished with a dash of vanilla. The drink produces a warm soothing effect and engenders a wonderfully calming effect on the body. The soothing aspect of vanilla adds a hint of creaminess.
For a perfect brew, it is recommend bringing freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place a heaping teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot and pour boiling water over the leaves. Let steep for at least 7 minutes, to bring out the "true" chai taste. While the tea is steeping, prepare your cup - use about 2 teaspoons of sugar, and fill about 20% of the cup's volume with milk
It is recommended you turn your bag of chai tea upside down a few times after receiving it, as the spices can settle on the bottom of the bag during transit.
