This pick-me-up was made fashionable by Catherine of Braganza from Portugal - sipping it as a part of her daily routine. The story goes that she transformed tea-drinking in Britain from a health tonic, to an elegant social beverage. We picked our cue from here and handcrafted this beverage to inspire your day. 

Tasting notes: The spicy tones of ginger, red chilli flakes and black pepper, combine with the subtle sweetness of cinnamon, anise and nutmeg and create a burst of flavors in the mouth.

Steeping notes: Steep 1 teaspoon of tea in a cup (200ml) of hot water (boil and cool to 98°C), for 4 minutes. Add hot milk. Strain and serve hot. Add sugar to taste. For an iced chai-tea treat, let your chai cool and serve over ice.

Ingredients: Organic black tea, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, anise, nutmeg, and roasted red chilli flakes


A NOTE FROM YOUR TEA SOMMELIER:

The Portuguese love their tea. Portuguese Spice Cha is the drink of choice in Portugal and has been since it was first introduced to Portuguese priests and merchants in China during the 16th century. We bring you this centuries old blend in a warming, delicately composed mélange of organic black tea combined with the subtle notes of spices to wake up the senses.

It is easy for anyone to develop a liking for this elegant beverage. It delivers pure energy, mental clarity, and a natural mood boost in every single sip. With well-being being the prime, the addition of ginger, and other spices strengthens immunity.

The warm, bold notes makes Portuguese Spice an ideal beverage to inspire your day. When you are tired, having a bad day, a cup of Portuguese Spice can be a good pick-me-up. A great 5 o’clock tea - it can be paired with tea sandwiches, croquettes, patties, dark chocolate desserts, and an array of baked delicacies.
