Organic Pu-erh, a fermented black tea from the Yunnan province in China, offers a sweet yet bold foundation for this chai blend. This sweetness is boosted by the addition of licorice root, mangoes, and berries. Almonds and star anise offer a savory balance to this combination, which results in a distinct flavor that is sure to please chai lovers and pu-erh fans alike!
Insider Tip: Try this as a latte: brew it strong and add some warm milk.

Chai is the word for tea in many parts of the world, but for most, it is meant to name a distinct blend of black tea and spices. Often prepared with milk and sweetened (called a chai latte), it is a hugely popular tea blend, but the actual blends and spices used vary widely. Common spices include cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, and pepper. At The Tea Smith, we have over a half dozen blends, ranging from Traditional to a Rooibos Chai. Find your favorite and enjoy!
