notes on tea strength The strength and flavor of tea is a personal experience.

We aim to provide times and temperatures that reduce the risk of allowing the actual tea leaves (or other delicate herbs in blends) to taste bitter due to too much steep time or to get scorched from too much heat.

If you desire a stronger cup, we suggest using more tea rather than a longer steep time to minimize the potential for a more bitter flavor.

what else you should know

about chai spice blend

This blend uses all the spices of traditional chai tea, but excludes the black tea base component thereby making this mixture caffeiene free. Enjoy all the flavors of chai without the extra kick, or follow the lead of cafés that have incorporated chai flavor into their coffee drinks and formulate a chai coffee mixture.

Steep this blend as you would other tea with boiling (or near boiling) water in either a tea strainer or paper bag, or decoct this blend in the traditional way of making masala chai by simmering the spices with milk and sugar.
