botanical infusion: caravan chai tea
rooibos, cinnamon, sage, pink peppercorn, cardamom, ginger root
flavor notes - maple, spice, pine
An Indian friend once gave us a recipe for her father’s special Chai blend. In addition to the more familiar spices of ginger and cardamom, the recipe included culinary sage. We always loved this chai and decided to adapt the recipe to create a non-caffeinated version with Rooibos as the base. Fall / winter is the perfect time of year for these flavors, and this special blend will quickly become a daily warming treat.
18-20 servings per 2oz rice paper pouch package.
Flowers and Leaves uses locally grown botanicals to create their infusions, in hopes of offering a botanical experience that honors the beauty and lore of the plants. Inspiration comes from the plants themselves – the mythology of their medicine, their potent leaves, delicate flowers, and the intoxicating aroma and flavor they release when infused. Leaves and Flowers botanical infusions are produced by hand in small batches in their California workshop.
Herbs are freshly procured from local farms, then sorted, dried and blended by hand. The climate controlled drying room is designed to preserve the plants at the peak of their vitality. Once the herbs have been dried, they are stripped from the stem and stored away from light and air to maintain their impeccable vibrancy. When blending, herbal ingredients are kept as whole and intact as possible.
All of Leaves and Flowers botanical infusions and teas are loose leaf, and sustainably grown and harvested .
