Rooibos Chai (Redbush Tea)
Chai is the Indian word for tea. In Dutch, the word Chai is usually used to indicate a spicy Indian herbal tea (masala chai in Indian). The Chai spices used in this tea are usually cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger, pepper, but other spices can be added.
Our Rooibos Chai blend is a must for both Rooibos and Chai lovers. The soft pallet of Rooibos combines surprisingly well with the spicy character of Chai. The result is a spicy tea blend that will never get boring. Delicious with foamed milk and a pinch of extra cinnamon.
Ingredients: Rooibos, cinnamon, aroma, cardamon, black pepper, ginger, cloves
Did you know that tea can also be wonderfully combined with savory foods?
I put it to the test with a delicious piece of old Cantal cheese, brought from the beautiful Auvergne in France. Cantal cheese has a strong taste. Spicy, slightly salty and with full tones in which a creamy, almost vanilla-like hint can be detected. Curious how it tastes in combination with an Oolong from Tanzania?

Last week one of our nicest customers, Chloe, came by for a pleasant conversation at our tea table.
Chloe started a podcast last year where she interviews people who play a role in her life. Today it was my turn and I was allowed to elaborate for more than half an hour about one of my great passions ... tea. Follow our conversation on Spotify!
I think every parent encounters this at some point. Isn't there a better alternative to lemonade or fruit juice for your kids? Even the healthy drinks are often still full of sugars and artificial additives. Tasty, but not really healthy. Offering only water is not always an option either. As a mother of two young daughters, I was always faced with this dilemma. Fortunately, as the owner of a tea shop, the solution was close at hand!
