INFORMATION:

Looking for something to warm you up when the nights are cool and spirits are in the air? Look no further. Blended to commemorate the 1820 short story, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, (1783 - 1859), Sleepy Hollow Chai is all but guaranteed to ease the chills. The blend also happens to be the perfect beverage to commemorate the town of Sleepy Hollow NY, formerly known as North Tarrytown, but changed to Sleepy Hollow in 1996 after residents there voted to change the name. (The town serves as Mr. Irving's final resting place.)

So, what goes into a tea named after the terrifying tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman? Pumpkin, of course. (The story goes that the horseman had the head of a pumpkin.) To this our Master Taster added a select blend of herbs and spices, chai mix, cinnamon and ginger pieces. The taste, it goes without saying, is to die for. Brew a pot today and raise a cup to old Ichabod himself.

How is chai traditionally brewed?
While there is no fixed method for preparing spiced chai, in India where the beverage was invented, the brew is created by boiling loose tea, spice and sweetener together in a mixture of milk and water. Once boiled, the mixture is strained into a cup and served with biscuits. The drink is sold all over the sub-continent by Chai-Wallahs, immediately recognizable thanks to their ubiquitous call: "Chayee! Chayee!"

Important: Turn your bag of Chai upside down a few times. The powdered spices can settle at the bottom of the bag during transit

HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

Great flavour

I like this tea much better than the one from David’s Tea. The 50g lasts me much longer and the flavour seems fresher. I will definitely order more.
