Canton Wild Chai

Our harmonious blend of wild Vietnamese black tea and intense, aromatic spices. Delivers a lively and warming kick for an afternoon pick-me-up.
We created this intense, aromatic blend to bring you the ultimate chai experience. Bringing together ginger root, mandarin peel, cassia, cardamom, black pepper and cloves with a wild Vietnamese black tea, the leaves release an intense burst of exotic, authentic flavours. Spicy, sweet and deliciously comforting, this is a tea that’s deeply aromatic and warming in equal measure.

We’re talking powerful depth of flavour and a fabulous story: a fairytale black tea, plucked from the wild, gangly trees growing unfettered in the mountains of Vietnam. This has a real spicy loveliness. - Jennifer Wood, Founder.

We chose to perfect our chai blend this year by using a wild Vietnamese black tea that brings extra complexity to the blend, balancing perfectly with the lively citrus notes of mandarin peel and aromatic spices. The tea grows wild in Yen Bai province in north-west Vietnam, where the climate and soil type give it similar characteristics to a Yunnan black tea. The ancient trees grow wild and uncultivated, and have reached heights of 26 feet in places! Tea pickers climb the trees to pluck the leaves, where they are then hand processed in very small, rural factories. The tea industry in this region has brought new life to the small, remote villages, offering locals a viable alternative to opium cultivation and has contributed greatly to the area’s sustainability.

Traditionally, chai is brewed with hot milk and sugar, however it can also be brewed a little lighter to be enjoyed on its own.
