Cacao, the unprocessed fruit of the Cacao tree is what is used to produce cocoa. The Cacao nibs in this chai blend are absolutely gorgeous, and make the tea so delicious. The chai spices are also of the highest quality, and they stand up stout and strong even with the addition of milk to your cup.
Zhi Tea describes this tea as:
Our Zhi Signature Blend Organic Cacao Chai has been lovingly hand-crafted to satisfy the most discerning chai aficionados and dark chocolate lovers. Similar in composition to our lovely Masala Chai, but with more pure vanilla and an abundance of organic Peruvian cacao nibs. This Chai loves whole organic milk and turbinado sugar! We created this blend due to overwhelming demand – at home! Join us in a steaming cup of this sumptuous delight.
I had not heard of turbinado sugar before seeing it in this description. But after reading the wikipedia page on it, I will definitely have to try some of that with this tea as it sounds like the perfect complimentary sugar to this lovely chai tea. A very well-rounded chai tea with a special chocolate touch that makes it delicious especially in the evening, or when it’s cold outside.
