South India spice gardens abound with a delicious light peppery finish. Only premium January grown spices make the grade for this mix. Now, even with all the variations in Chai available in India, most recipes share some constants: ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, cloves and black pepper. (The standard savory mix we are offering here.) What is added on top of the standard mix is where it gets interesting. Chai-wallahs, (sellers), might add saffron, vanilla pods, pieces of dried fruit, chili peppers, crushed nuts and just about anything else they can lay their hands on to personalize their product. Use it to develop some spicy blends of your own. For a start, try adding the mix to black teas, green teas or Rooibos. Or shake things up and blend it into one of our premium-flavored teas like vanilla, peach or orange. With chai, the possibilities are endless. Let us know what you come up with - we’re always looking for another cup to add to our collection!

This Japanese standard is delicious hot & cold! Mugicha (pronounced Moo'-gee-cha) is entirely made from roasted barley. Caffeine-free with a subtle sweetness, making it perfect for the kids. This barley tea is gently roasted to perfection in small batches and has unparallel taste and flavor. Though it is not technically tea, it is prepared in much the same way. It is popular in Japan and Korea (where it is called bori cha). It is regarded as a summer beverage. The tea is usually served cold, but it can also be served hot; the hot version is more popular in the winter. According a recent Japanese study, drinking barley tea increased blood fluidity.
You can even make a nutritious breakfast Barley Milk Tea with this roast barley. 10 gram if Mugicha will make a pitcher of delicious hot tea or iced tea - it is naturally caffeine free.

Blended with Egyptian Chamomile, French Lavender and Rose Hips. Chamomile is one of the oldest favorites amongst garden herbs and its reputation as a medicinal plant shows little signs of abatement. Chamomile flowers are recommended as a tonic in dropsical complaints for their diuretic and tonic properties, and are also combined with diaphoretics and other stimulants with advantage. Lavender was used in earlier days as a condiment and for flavoring dishes 'to comfort the stomach.' Along with their health benefits, Rose hips have a tangy, yet sweet, flavor and can be used fresh, dried, or preserved. The hips are usually left on the bush until after the first frost, which makes them turn bright red and slightly soft.
