Information : A tea that blends the flavors of Japan and India together may seem a tad unlikely, but these two tea-loving countries have a long history of friendship, so it's a natural fit! Cultural exchange between Japan and India started sometime during the 6th Century when Indian Buddhism was brought to Japan by traveling monks. Although Japan's native religion was Shintoism, The blending Genmaicha with Chai is not such an odd notion after all. Once you brew a pot for yourself you'll wonder why you questioned it at all. The tea blends the light character of Genmaicha with the exotic spiciness of chai. The resulting cup is the kind you want to gulp down as quickly as you can so you can have another. As you tip it back, your tongue is greeted by toasty notes of puffed rice punctuated by the hot sweetness of ginger, taste bud tempting cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, cloves and a long peppery finish. A fabulous cup deserving of its own bi-national tea anthem!

Important : Turn your bag of Chai upside down a few times. The powdered spices can settle at the bottom of the bag during transit.

Hot tea brewing method : Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea, 1 tea bag or 1 Q3 single serve packet for each 7-9oz of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes (for true 'chayee chayee' steep at least 7 minutes).
While the tea is brewing prepare your cup to receive the chai – put 2 teaspoons of sugar in the cup and add milk (about 20%) of the cup's volume. When the chai is ready – pour into your cup.
