Our 100% organic signature chai spice with intruguing hints of saffron and elderberry. Brew it up alone, or use it to simmer your own chai on the stovetop. . . .
Our chai spice is a rich formulation building on the traditional cardamom, ginger and cinnamon base with intriguing additions like whole vanilla bean and saffron. Our blend is the result of working with some of the most devoted baristas in Minneapolis for field testing.
The goal was to create an incrediby versatile chai rich enough to drink alone as a caffeine-free option, but balanced enough to blend with a base tea of your choice like Laoshan Black, Yu Lu Yan Cha, or Anxi Fo Shou Black. Intensely warming, and naturally sweet, we are excited to share what has become a sensation at coffee shops throughout our hometown of Minneapolis.

Use 2tsp of tea per cup of water. Steep with boiling water for 5 minutes, or simmer on the stovetop for eight minutes for a potent brew. Blend with your favorite tea for a masala chai, and add a touch of milk and honey if you prefer. Use filtered water and a brew basket when possible.
Iced Tea (Cold Brewing)
Use about 4 grams of tea for every 12oz of water. Combine with room temperature water in a covered vessel and refrigerate for 8-12 hours. Enjoy!
Iced Tea (Flash Chilled)
Use 1TB (5 grams) of tea in a 6-8oz vessel. Steep for 1 minute with filtered boiled water. Fill a martini shaker (or equivalent) with ice, then add brewed tea and shake until well-chilled (usually 10-30 seconds). Pour out through martini-shaker top over fresh ice in a new glass and serve.
