Red Son Chai (Organic Rooibos Chai)

This was a tea that had been waiting to happen for quite a while.  Basically since we started working with Rooibos as a foundational ingredient.

Given my love of chai, I’m pretty sure my plan is to eventually have a chai for each type of tea that we make, along with a few herbal variants to cover as many bases as possible.

The Rooibos Chai moved to the front of the line due to a customer request.  It is a less intense chai than many of the ones that we make, but the base flavour of Rooibos lends itself to a more delicate chai.

When we blended the first cup and I handed it to Mister Tea for testing, he proclaimed, “You have invented a new colour – Midnight Red.”

That declaration was what spawned most of our name ideas, to one extent or another.  In the end we decided to salute our favorite Superman comic.

Now for the basics:

Organic Ingredients:  Rooibos, Cardamom, Ginger, Cinnamon

Batch Size:  4 ounces, approximately 25-30 servings of tea

Options:  Loose Tea (Sample, Bag), Teabags (Single, Sample, Bag)

Purchasing:  Etsy, Personal Shop

      I continue to be pleasantly surprised by Rooibos – initially I was quite uncertain of working with it, but it has been fun.
