Serving Souvia Organic Teas:
Whether it is white, green, black or oolong, all teas come from the same plant ~ Camellia Sinensis.Similar to wine, the character of the tea, its color and flavor are determined by altitude, climate, seasonal changes, plucking method and how the leaf is processed. Each type requires different brewing temperatures and steeping time to obtain its optimum flavor.
Chai is the word for tea in many Asian countries and a cup of chai is simply a cup of black tea. The spicy version we have come to love is called “masala chai”. It is a combination of black tea and exotic spices like nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and pepper. Traditionally, the tea and spices are simmered in milk and sweetened with honey or sugar.
