Cacao Chai Teabags Tea Tin


Cacao ChaiChai made with cacao shell has a unique and distinct flavor profile compared to regular chai tea. The addition of cacao shells imparts a subtle chocolatey flavor to the tea, which blends well with the traditional chai spices like cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, black peppercorn and cloves. The taste of chai made with cacao shell is less sweet than a chai latte, which is a Westernized version of chai tea that is typically sweeter and less complex in flavor.

According to Mayan religious beliefs, Cacao had a divine origin. In one of their creation stories, Cacao is one of the precious substances from the mountain of sustenance. While this chai does not contain any of the chocolate that the Mayans revered, the cacao shells offer the aroma and flavor of chocolate.
