    Nice spice blend. I received a free sample of this tea. I don't use milk or sugar with my tea as they suggest with this tea, so I drank it as simply a black tea. It was a nice, balanced blend of spices that weren't overpowering. I didn't notice a strong "chocolate/cocoa" flavor, probably because cacao nibs don't really melt. But I did really like the overall spice-blend taste.

    Delish! I received this as a courtesy sample and am craving more already! Nice warming aroma, perfect amount of spice and complemented with a bit of raw sugar and milk. Its better than dessert! Thanks for turning me on to this bodacious blend!!

    I first tried this tea when my sister had bought a tin. It was so amazing that a few weeks later she and I visited the store to buy more. I love the floral notes and how you can really taste the spice from the ginger and cardamom, which adds a nice zing that other teas that claim to have ginger don't have.

    I try not to let flavored teas be too much a part of my tea consumption, but I'm having a hard time controlling myself with this one! It's rich and delicious with plenty of spice and chocolate. In Credible! I'm almost through with my 5 oz tin I bought in early December. I'm glad I live in Austin and can just drive on over for instant gratification!

    A delicious chocolaty chai that everyone I serve it to loves. Couldn't make better chai if I mixed fresh herbs and spices myself!

    Chocolate-y and spicy, this is my new go-to chai! I love it with soymilk or plain soy creamer and raw sugar. Super rich and good for 2+ steepings.

    Full-bodied, aromatic, great dark chocolate-y start to the morning. Love it with a shot of honey.

    This is my house specialty with foamy steamed milk and a bit of raw sugar....everyone I make this for is a total convert!!!! I was in Italy for a month recently and decided I couldn't be without it, so I took a big bag along with my milk foamer thingy and made it for me and my friends everyday!!!

How To Brew The World’s Best Tasting Chai Latte- Stove Top Method
More labor intensive, but very rewarding!
4-6 heaping Tbsp ZHI CHAI
32 oz milk (soy milk works great)
Sweetener of choice – agave nectar is wonderful, so is turbinado sugar
Spring or filtered water
Place Chai in approx. two cups boiling water. Cover and simmer down to a syrupy consistency - about 10 minutes. Add water if you run low. Don’t use too much water, as you want the finished product to be as creamy and rich as possible!
After about 10 minutes, slowly add the milk and sweetener to taste. Stir occasionally. Simmer and remove before it starts to foam up. Remove immediately from heat and strain out solids. (You can save this for a second steeping!)
Makes four servings
Serve hot or over ice! Leftovers (as if!) can be chilled in the fridge for 2-3 days.
-ZHI Tea Master
The history of tea in China is long and complex. The Chinese have enjoyed tea for millennia. Scholars hailed the brew as a cure for a variety of ailments; the nobility considered the consumption of good tea as a mark of their status, and the common people simply enjoyed its flavor.

Tea was first discovered by the Chinese Emperor Shennong in 2737 BC. It is said that the emperor liked his drinking water boiled before he drank it so it would be clean, so that is what his servants did. One day, on a trip to a distant region, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from the wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned a brownish color, but it was unnoticed and presented to the emperor anyway. The emperor drank it and found it very refreshing, and cha (tea) was born.
