Tea of the Week for January 16, 2023!

I know this tea may sound a little weird – but I’m LOVING it!

The sip starts with a bright pineapple note with just a hint of spice – primarily the cumin – with the other spices appearing as supporting flavors to these two key ingredients. The overall flavor is warm & comforting – while the pineapple adds a delightful sweetness to the cup.

A truly rewarding cuppa – it’s organic, vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free & all natural too!

organic ingredients: green teas, pineapple, allspice, Cardamom, Cloves, Cinnamon, Cumin, Ginger, Nutmeg, Star Anise, calendula petals & natural flavors

more about this tea: I really love how this one turned out. Yeah, I say that a lot & I even say that a lot too! That’s one of the amazing things about this job – I get to come up with all kinds of crazy tea flavor combinations & then I get to be the first one to taste them. Not all of my combinations work – so I’m really happy when they do . . . & this combination DOES work!

I know that it seems like this has got a lot going on – & yeah, it does! But it all works together really beautifully. Be sure to scroll down to read my recipe for a milk cap – because the milk cap on this = one of the most delightful things you’re ever gonna sip!

to brew: shake pouch well to redistribute the ingredients. This chai has a lot of spices so it’s important to make sure you get all those spices incorporated in every measurement! Use 3g of tea to 12oz of very hot water (175°F). Steep for 2 minutes. Strain. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Enjoy!

serving suggestion: I like this blend both hot & cold – it’s really good as a cold-brew! As I type this, I’m enjoying it as a hot cuppa & it’s really good like that too.

But if you wanna take this over the top – this tea is phenomenal served with a milk cap. If you’re familiar with boba teas, you are probably familiar with what a milk cap is. It’s also sometimes called “cheese tea” (which – I gotta say, is a really uncomfortable name for it! So much so that it kept me from trying it! I didn’t actually try it until I heard it called “milk cap”!) It’s also often called Crema.

Basically, a milk cap is a whipped “topping” made of cream cheese, whipping cream, sugar & salt. Some other ingredients can be added, I suppose, but the way I make mine is with about a cup of whipping cream, 1 oz of room temperature cream cheese, a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of sugar & vanilla extract. I whip these together using my hand mixer (you can do it by hand with a whisk but it’s a lot more work like that) until it’s smooth & creamy. (tip: it’s best if you first cream the cream cheese and sugar together until it’s nice and smooth, and then add about half of the cream & work it in until there are no cream cheese lumps, then add the rest of the ingredients & continue whipping until it’s smooth & creamy. Taste it & then add more sugar or salt to your taste – if you like a slightly saltier milk cap, add more salt – if you want it sweeter, add more sugar – or if you like it a little “looser” then add a little more cream.

After making this amazingly luscious topping – top your Pineapple Cumin Green Chai Tea with it (either hot or iced) & you can either sip it with it sitting on top (the boba shops will tell you that you should hold the cup at a 45 degree angle & sip it so that you get a little bit of the crema & tea in the sip at the same time – this is probably easier to do with a cold tea!) or you can stir it in to turn it into a latte (which is what I do!) OMG – so good! I love the way the pineapple works with the milk cap & how the spices pop through the creaminess of it all. A very decadent, yummy way to enjoy this tea!

This is the tea of the week for January 16, 2023 – I absolutely love this tea – and sadly, this is the last that I have in my personal stash of this – because I’ve been drinking it several times a week.

I love the way the sweetness of the pineapple mingles with the smoky spiced notes of the cumin and the warm notes of the other spices. YUM! When I have a tea like this, it makes me wish that we had more fall and winter and even early spring – and less of the warmer spring months & summer because teas like this are so much yummier when it’s chilly!
