Spice Island Chai

Sale price Price $14.00 USD Regular price

Sri Lankan Black Tea blended with Whole Organic Spices

This spicy delight is a blend of Ceylon black tea with organic cinnamon, ginger and cloves, all freshly grown and blended in the Uva highlands of Sri Lanka, and is sure to warm your spirits.

Previously known to the West as the Spice Island, Sri Lanka boasts the world's best cinnamon, as well as a host of other delicious spices. Our partner farm Amba Estate grows both tea and organic spices. We've collaborated with them to create a Chai blend we know you'll love: A Sri Lankan take on the Indian Masala Chai, which results in a crisper, more refreshing cup. 

Bold and spicy with a natural vanilla-like sweetness and incredible aromatics, this Chai can be enjoyed on its own, with milk and sugar, or brewed on the stove to fill your house with a tantalizing aroma. We love savoring it during cold, overcast days to fill our hearts with a touch of warmth. 

All ingredients are grown at Amba and 100% natural (no artificial flavoring).

Farm Story

Started by four partners with a focus on sustainability, Amba Estate is an organic farm producing artisanal teas, coffee, and spices. In addition to salary, benefits and overtime, Amba gives 10% of all its revenues back to its employees. Unlike other producers, Amba also empowers their staff through rotational work - meaning tea pickers can also wither, roll and dry the leaves. This gives them a full-circle sense of pride for what they've created.

Amba's farms are 100% organic: No chemicals, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides are used. To maintain and enhance soil fertility, Amba uses green plant material from the estate's ground and manure from their own herd of ‘rescue cows’, as well as shade trees that naturally induce nitrogen-rich soil.
