Rishi Tea has added five new loose leaf teas to its Chai selection. Each tea is organic and Fair Trade certified and is available in a stylish tin. Chai, or “tea” in India, is made of a blend of spiced black tea which is combined with sugar and hot milk or water.
Rishi's new teas come in a variety of exciting flavors to whet every drinker’s appetite. The five flavors as described by the company:
-Masala Chai is an award-winning blend based on the traditional Indian tea, using robust, shade-grown black tea from Rishi’s Ancient Tree Tea, Organic Fair Trade project in the Yunnan province of China.
-Chocolate Chai is a sophisticated take on hot cocoa, combining energizing pu-erh tea, shade-grown yerba maté, cacao, creamy vanilla and coconut.
-Green Tea Chai blends pan-fired green tea with spicy undertones of ginger and a sweet citrus finish of lemongrass for a refreshing, innovative tea.
-Vanilla Mint Chai is a creamy, pu-erh-based chai unlike any other, with a perfect balance of creamy vanilla bean, soothing peppermint and sweet cinnamon.
-Caffeine-Free West Cape Chai combines healthful rooibos, roasted ramón nut, South Asian star anise and a blend of spices for an aromatic and enlivening anytime chai.
