A perfect cup of chai

Chai simply means tea. There are hundreds of varieties, and none taste so delicious as when you have waited patiently while your host brews up their family’s traditional blend. It takes up to 20 minutes to properly make chai. After years of tasting a wide variety of home-made chai with Indian friends, we tinkered around to find the perfect blend.  I wanted the first sip to fill you with warmth and happiness, and as it travels down your throat, the ginger and black pepper will invigorate and enliven you.  This blend is the ultimate comfort-food, and connects you with an ancient time, when spices were gold.  Speaking of gold, a richly golden honey from a local bee farm is best. You will need to have on hand fresh ginger, honey, and milk.

This pack will produce enough chai for two cups. One for you, and one for your companion so that you can share the experience of “A Perfect Cup of Chai”.
