-The healing Chai
We enjoy a nice cup of chai every single day but when we are coming down with a cold, there's nothing more comforting than holding a cup of delicious, aromatic tea and sipping slowly.
We used our Organic Chai Tea which is a blend of hand-selected tea leaves and ethically cultivated spices including exotic Malabar cardamom. Exclusively made with organic tea leaves and spices, this blend contains no additives or flavors. Plus it’s USDA Organic, GMO-Free, Paleo Certified.
