In many parts of the world the word chai is synonymous with tea, but at Big Heart Tea Co. chai is synonymous with cup of awesome.
We use both tulsi (or holy basil) and red rooibos as our chai base. Red rooibos is a sweet-ish tea grown in South Africa and qualifies as what I would call a ‘free radical warrior’ because of its super high levels of anti-oxidants.
Tulsi and red rooibos are blended with freshly ground cardamom, cinnamon, allspice, clove, star anise, ginger and peppercorn. Its a peppery tea that will make you blush it’s so good!
Ingredients: Organic Tulsi, Organic Red Rooibos tea, Organic Cardamom, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Ginger, Star Anise, Peppercorn, Clove. Allspice
How to brew: start with a heaping teaspoon and increase depending on how strong you prefer your tea. Steep for two minutes. Chai is great with a bit of honey and milk, if you're into that. Enjoy!
