Delicious White Chai Tea
Chai tea is commonly a blend using black tea, but our White Chai Spice is a unique blend of light-bodied white tea with complex flavors of lemongrass, apple pieces, and pineapple pieces. The sweetness of the fruit flavors is balanced with notes of ginger root, cinnamon bark, cloves, dried coconut, cardamom, natural spices, and cinnamon. A kick of peppercorn adds some zest and a delicious chai spice finish.
What is white tea?
White tea comes from young or minimally processed leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant - the silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the plant. White tea once brewed is not actually white or colorless but instead has a pale yellow color.
What is the difference between white and black tea?
The flavor of white tea can be described as silky and sweet and is very mild compared to black tea. White tea also will not have the grassy flavor often associated with green tea.
Does white tea have caffeine?
Any tea that comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant contains caffeine. However, White Chai Spice, which is a blended tea, contains a low level of caffeine compared to that of an unblended white tea.
Using fully boiling water to brew white tea or brewing white tea for more than five minutes will increase the level of caffeine in your cup. We recommend using water that's 190 degrees Fahrenheit or lower and brew for three to four minutes, five minutes at most.
TEA TIP: If you are concerned with caffeine levels is to re-brew the same leaves a second time. The flavor will be a little less intense with a second infusion, but the caffeine level is reduced.
