Smooth and sweet with the first sip, then spicy as it settles on the back of your tongue. It looks like a cup of matcha - a rich, creamy green - but that lingering, wakening, delectable sensation tells your taste buds this drink is much more.
Our Matcha Chai Tea Blend begins with our premium Japanese matcha powder*, which is then blended carefully with a touch of warming spices like cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, clove, and more. Just enough spice to create that tingling effect of chai without overpowering the soothing flavor of matcha. Finally, we add a hint of our premium Ceylon tea powder to balance the blend, and to give the drink even more depth and richness. One of our personal favorite drinks at night when we just want to melt the worries of the day away.
*The primary ingredient of the blend - our Premium Japanese Matcha Powder - makes this drink a healthier alternative to a cup of green tea or coffee. Because you're consuming the tea leaves, instead of just steeping them, you receive significantly more antioxidants than from a cup of green tea. In addition, matcha has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, but unlike coffee, the caffeine from matcha is absorbed by your body at a much slower rate. This gives you longer lasting energy without the strong side effects that caffeine from coffee can bring about.
Easy Matcha Chai Latte Recipe (1 serving): 1. In a small pot, add in 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of water, 1.5 - 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 1 - 1.5 teaspoons of our Matcha Chai Tea Blend. 2. Heat on low fire until simmering, then turn fire off, cover the pot, and let steep for 5-10 minutes. 3. Before serving, heat again on low fire to desired drinking temperature (if you have an electric milk frother, use it to foam up and thicken the tea). 4. Finally, strain out the spices while you pour the tea into a mug.
