Ingredients: Aged Ceylon Black Tea, Cassia Bark, Whole Cloves, Almonds, Star Anise, Allspice, Ginger Root, Cardamom and Pink Peppercorns
Chai (translates literally to “tea”) is a spicy blend tea with a black tea base. It can be taken straight, but it’s traditionally steeped in a delicious base of milk and honey and strained for a luxurious treat. The milk can easily be substituted with goat’s milk, almond milk (my favorite!), rice milk or soy milk. Chai is widely consumed in Africa and each region has its own favorite version.This version is a deliciously lush and exotic new blend of spices, almonds and aged Ceylon black tea: AFRICAN CHAI! Like a traditional chai with the decadent addition of almonds and pink peppercorns.Like all of American Royal Tea blends, African Chai is 100% organic, non-GMO and made in the U.S.A. I source all of my ingredients within the United States from trusted American farmers of heirloom and non-GMO/organic raw ingredients.*African Chai is “caffeinated.”
Ingredients: Rare White Peony tea (Bai Mu Dan) and wild organic sustainably foraged Spruce tips
It’s like a cup of fog in a spruce forest!
Bai Mu Dan –commonly known as White Peony Tea– is a rare tea from the Fujian province of China. It’s the first two leaves that appear on the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are immediately picked and are renowned for their full fresh flavor. The leaves are so young that they often have a white “furry” appearance on some of the leaves. (This is perfectly normal.) American Royal Tea adds the delicious piney taste and benefits of wild organic foraged spruce tips. The tips are sustainably gathered and promote healthy growth of the trees.
Both ingredients thrive in forested mountain coastal regions while spruce trees thrive in foggy forests that evoke generations of mysterious stories and reverence.The result is a wonderfully soothing fresh burst of the coastal foggy forest in a tea cup!
Like all of American Royal Tea blends, Fog City Vice is 100% organic, non-GMO and made in the U.S.A. The Bai Mu Dan tea is organic and fair-trade.
This tea doesn’t require extended steeping and can be brewed at 150-155 degrees and steeped for 1-3 minutes. (Longer steeping can result in a bitter, but stronger tea. Though the aforementioned is the standard brewing time, the brewing results should be enjoyed according to the drinker’s taste.)
Ingredients: Green Tea (Sencha Tea Leaves), Toasted Organic Brown Rice, Dry Roasted Almonds
American Royal Tea introduces a new tea: Gollygee Genmaicha (Genmaich is pronounced with a hard g-like “GEH-YEN-my-cha”).A toasty, nutty, tea with vegetal tasting notes, Gollygee Genmaicha is the perfect accompaniment to lunch or evening meals or just by itself. A caffeinated green tea, my Genmaicha is now made with early season sencha green tea leaves and toasted brown rice, and is popularly known as “popcorn tea” for it’s nutty, natural flavor. My blend includes dry roasted, unsalted almonds, which is the perfect blend to aid in digestion and relaxation. Like all of teas and infusions at American Royal Tea, Gollygee Genmaicha is 100% organic (including organic brown rice) and non-GMO.
(*This tea is lightly caffeinated. Green tea has a low amount of caffeine, but less caffeine than black tea.)
