Our Decaf Chai tea blend combines premium Ceylon black tea with cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. Our interpretation brings a decaf option to the typical Masala Chai with a warm and inviting fragrance, zesty flavour and invigorating, aromatic finish. A gentle, natural CO2 decaffeination process retains the delicate shape and flavour of the tea leaves. We suggest two heaping teaspoons per 250ml cup. Sugar or milk if desired.
This is a decaf tea | Steep at 100°C for 7-10 minutes.

Historically, tea in India was viewed as an herbal medicine, rather than as a beverage for taste. Some chai spice blends still in current use are derived from Ayurvedic medical texts. Popular spices include anise, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, peppercorn and ginger. Traditional preparation actually calls for the spices, milk and leaves to be simmered over sustained heat, rather than steeped in preheated water (like regular tea). In India, chai is served in little clay cups from chai carts. After enjoying your tea, the cups are shattered on the ground and allowed to compost - an earth-friendly alternative to the paper and plastic cups.
