Stash Decaffeinated Chai Spice is made with black teas that are naturally decaffeinated using the CO2 method. This process allows the tea leaves to retain the most flavor possible and leaves only about 2-6% of its original caffeine content. Blended with cinnamon, clove, ginger and cardamom, this tea still has all the spicy, rich flavor of a caffeinated chai. The brewed tea is very aromatic, with a powerful taste and lingering flavor that is quintessentially chai in nature. This tea is delicious plain or with milk and sugar.
Some of the finest black teas in the world come from India, the world's leading producer of tea. Included in these teas are the robust and malty Assams, the prized muscatel Darjeelings, and the well-balanced Nilgiris. However, most tea consumed in India is not enjoyed for its subtle flavor nuances, but is instead blended with sweet and pungent spices to make the popular beverage chai.
We actively maintain signed statements from our ingredient suppliers stating that all ingredients purchased by Stash Tea Company are gluten-free. We do not use barley malt in any of our blends.
Since 1972, Stash has been dedicated to providing premium quality teas. Our passion for quality teas is unmatched. We source from premier tea gardens, sampling hundreds of teas but selecting only a handful for our customers. We search for unique, often rare - and above all, exceptional - teas to share with you. For our herbal and flavored blends, we buy whole herbs and spices from the world's best sources and, for superior flavor, mill them right before blending.
To savor the full flavor of our teas, bring fresh water to a rolling boil. Pour hot water directly over the tea bag in a pre-heated pot or cup. Brew 3-5 minutes or to desired taste. One tea bag makes 8 ounces of hot tea. For iced tea, brew double strength.
