Wei Chi Cha
Origin: Organic orange peel, organic, fair trade hibiscus, organic lemongrass, organic licorice root, organic clove, organic lavender and organic stevia (sweetleaf) from the U.S.
Flavor Profile: A deeply complex, sweetly spiced, comforting blend full of rich, warming spices and herbs.
Tea Story: Wei Chi Cha is named for “wei chi,” your protective life force energy. Acupuncturists from all over San Francisco send their clients to us for its warming qualities.
Chi aside, this is an organic, caffeine-free blend that is bold and soothing, like mulled apple cider, but with abundant stevia sweetness in lieu of sugar and fructose.
The dry blend is a colorful, bright mélange with intense aromas of clove, lemongrass, lavender and orange peel. When brewed, Wei Chi Cha is a brilliant ruby color with rose-pink edges in the glass.
The grounding aroma is a balance of hibiscus and lemongrass, with lesser notes of clove, orange and other warm spices. Hibiscus, clove, lemongrass and orange peel create an all-enveloping flavor that is potent and supremely comforting. Lemony tang and licorice and clove astringency in the finish precede a sensation of restoration and calm.
Samovarian Poetry: A blend of warming spices to soothe the body, mind and spirit.
Food Pairing: To start your day, drink Wei Chi Cha with blueberry, cherry, cinnamon-apple or cherry coffeecake, Danishes, strudel or crème-anglaise-topped popovers. It’s also great with spiced, fruity desserts, like apple kuchen, gingerbread, pumpkin-raisin bread, stewed cherries over vanilla ice cream, baked apples or warm, iced cinnamon-raisin rolls.
