Let the warm and inviting aroma of spices whisk you away to another land. A fine Sri Lankan black tea hand blended with exotic spices and a hint of vanilla for that little extra something.

About Vanilla Chai

Ingredients

Sri Lankan black tea, organic cinnamon, organic vanilla, organic ginger, organic clove, organic cardamom, organic star anise, organic black pepper.

Therapeutic Properties

CINNAMON
Cinnamon is used to warm the body and may assist in improving circulation. It may also help with bloating and prevent infection due to a natural antiseptic compound found in the bark.

VANILLA
The wonderful aromas of vanilla are not only enticing to the senses but have been used to stimulate the brain, increase energy and improve digestion.

GINGER
Ginger has been an important herb in many ancient traditional medicines and one we have all come to know and love. The most notable; is remedy for easing nausea, vomiting and upset stomach. Ginger is also a warming herb and as an herbal infusion may assist in relieving cold and flu symptoms, joint pain and poor circulation.

CLOVE
Cloves (especially the oil), holds a compound called ‘eugenol’ which has mild antiseptic properties that may have the potential to fight bacteria and viruses. When steeped in hot water cloves may assist with stomach discomfort, toothache and indigestion.

CARDAMOM
They call it the “queen of spices”, used as a digestive tonic for thousands of years. Cardamom “warms” and stimulates digestion and may ease stomach pain. It can also be useful as a carminative and energy booster.

STAR ANISE
This herb has carminative (gas-relieving), and diuretic properties. In traditional medicine, it has been used to help to treat upset stomachs and toothaches.

BLACK PEPPERCORNS
Black pepper is high in antioxidants and contains a volatile oil that causes the herb to have a warming effect on your digestive and circulatory systems. It may help to relieve stomach ache, nausea and bloating.

NOTE: We always recommend consulting with your doctor or naturopath before self-medicating.

Brewing Instructions

Water temperature is vital for achieving best flavour from your tea! Black tea with spice’s needs hot water to extract all those wonderful flavours and oils. Boiling water is a must for this aromatic tea.

  • Use 1 tbsp per 200ml of water
  • 100 degree Celsius (ideally, use cold spring water and bring it to a boil), then pour it in your brewing vessel. Add Chai immediately.
  • Brew for 4 minutes
  • Add a sweetener of your choice. We like to use honey. Chai loves sweetener, it’s what brings out all the world of wonderful flavours from your spices!
Traditional Brewing Instructions

Traditional brews are great fun to make at home and enjoy Chai the authenic way. 

Always add an extra tablespoon of Chai when using milk. This will make 500ml

  • In a saucepan add 2 tbsps of Chai. 
  • Bring fresh spring water to a boil. Add enough boiling water to cover the chai in the sauce pan and brew for 2 minutes.
  • Add 500ml of your favourite creamy milk to the chai in the sauce pan (we like to use the Oatley Oat milk Barista blend), place on the stove on low heat. Bring to a low simmer.
  • Brew for a good 7-10 minutes. (the longer the stronger)
  • Once brewed, strain into a teapot.
  • Add 1 heaped tbsp of a sweetener of your choice or to desired taste (We love to use honey or agave syurp).
