I decided to give this one a shot because I need something warming. Turns out, it is NOT AT ALL like the regular chai black tea from Stash! This one is actually tolerable! Maybe it’s because I steeped it a full 5 minutes? I don’t know, but I’m digging it. At least right now. Because it’s like 40 degrees outside, and I’m FREEZING! It’s got a nice and spicy bite from the ginger, and you can really taste the cardamom and cinnamon. Not too shabby, at least for Stash!
Stash Green Chai Spice lends a modern twist to the traditional Chai by blending Lung Ching or Dragonwell Chinese green tea with cinnamon, whole cloves, cardamom, ginger root and sarsaparilla. The result is a flavorful and spicy tea that goes well with milk and sugar and may be enjoyed any time of the day. Chai can be both calming and stimulating.
Tip: For traditional Chai tea, brew with 7 ounces of water. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 ounce of milk (for a creamier drink use one ounce of canned evaporated milk).
Ingredients: green tea, cinnamon, clove, ginger root, sarsaparilla, natural cinnamon flavor, clove oil, cardamom oil
Steeping Instructions: 1-3 minutes at 170-190 degrees Fahrenheit
