Flavors of the Holidays

Cinnamon and ginger are often associated with the Christmas season in America. A plausible reason may be that cooks of olde rationed their spices throughout the year and used them only for special occasions.

We use these same spices to make our Masala Chai, an authentic Indian recipe made of black tea, ginger, cardamom and cinnamon. These easy-to-use tea bags are perfect to create your own chai lattes, smoothies and desserts. Each single serving tea bag contains a pre-measured portion of each ingredient. You control the sweetness and calories. Use your favorite sweetener. Add your milk of choice.

2 tablespoons half n half
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon vodka

About The Leaf Lover
Aloha, my name is Byron Goo. I started our company in 1995 in my garage. Tea has taken me all over the world since then and I continue to be a student of the leaf and of life. The Leaf Lover is a way for me to share about my passion for tea and our small business. I wear many hats including CEO of the company but I think of myself simply as a tea maker.
