modern chai no. 2


Our loose-leaf Modern Chai No. 2 has its roots in the magical union of chocolate and saffron. Both precious commodities have rich histories of inspiring love and art, among other pursuits. Saffron even receives a rather lusty and poetic mention in the Song of Solomon:

"Your lips drop sweetness like honeycomb, my bride, syrup and milk are under your tongue, and your dress had the scent of Lebanon. Your cheeks are an orchard of pomegranates, an orchard full of rare fruits, spikenard and saffron, sweet cane and cinnamon. ”

Organic, fairly-traded single origin Ceylon black tea forms the base of our second house blend (contains caffeine!), while organic cardamom, organic ginger and organic ceylon cinnamon lend their classic chai spiciness. Exotic saffron and organic, fairly-traded cacao give this blend its rich and mysterious character. Slowing down enough to brew up a cup of this loose leaf chai will soothe and renew the spirit.

Pair with one of our vintage tea strainers for a lovely gift!

To brew a gorgeous cup of chai: simmer 1/2 cup water & 1/2 cup of your favorite milk, add 2 tbsp. chai (feel free to add more or less, according to your preferences), simmer for 5 minutes. Strain, sweeten & enjoy. This chai is also delicious over ice on warm days.

{2.5 oz recyclable + compostable box with biodegradable cellulose liner from sustainably managed forests, makes about 11 servings}
