It’s a gloomy summer day here in the Pacific Northwest. It’s only the second week of summer break for my kids. Softball camp was cancelled today due to rain. Instead of being annoyed by it, we are taking advantage of it by making it a movie day. We are snuggled up with blankets and it is the perfect opportunity to try another tea variety from the Wissotsky Tea Company’s new Artisan Spiced Tea Collection. Chai tea is my absolute favorite but I typically start drinking it in the fall and stick with iced coffee in the summer. I know Chai is commonly enjoyed iced as well but I prefer it hot.
Wissotzky is a family owned and operated company. It was founded in 1849 in Moscow, Russia and became the largest tea firm in the Russian Empire. Wissotzsky travels the world’s tea gardens and exotic spice markets to create exceptional tea blends for tea lovers worldwide. They are based in Israel with offices in London and the United States
They say “variety is the spice of life”. This sentiment couldn’t be truer with the Wissotzky Tea Company Artisan Spiced Tea Collection. If you love Chai, you’ll love these new and exciting flavors. Each blend combines hand selected premium black tea leaves with market spices, herbs and other natural ingredients and comes packaged into delicate pyramid tea bags which allow the perfect release of aroma and flavor. The 16 count boxes they are packed in are pretty too!
Check out the four new varieties for your morning cuppa, an afternoon pick me up or an after dinner treat:
- Salted Caramel Chai: a sweet and savory beverage redolent of warm cinnamon, ginger root, cloves, sea salt, and cardamom.
- Ginger and Turmeric: the earthy flavor of turmeric (known for its health benefits) blended with ginger root, cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom.
- Spiced Nana Mint: robust, flat-leaf Mediterranean mint complemented by cinnamon, ginger root, cloves, cardamom, and pepper.
- Pumpkin Spiced Chai: a toasty balance of cinnamon and ginger with pumpkin pieces, cloves, cardamom, black pepper, and chili.
These brew quickly steeped with a boiled water. I personally enjoy them with milk and a little sugar. If you prefer it cold, Wissotzky’s offers these tips for How to Make The Perfect Iced Tea:
Bring 8 cups water to a simmer; remove from the heat and add 6 tea bags. … Let steep about 4 minutes, until it’s the strength you like. Remove the tea bags. Let cool, then transfer to a pitcher, cover and refrigerate.
Combine 8 cups cold water and 10 tea bags in a pitcher. Cover and refrigerate 15 to 36 hours, until it’s the strength you like. Remove the tea bags.
Serve in Tall Glass with Lemon wedge or a few berries for an extra kick of flavor.
Not surprisingly, the Pumpkin Spiced Chai was my favorite. I love pumpkin and spice so this was the perfect blend for me. I also really enjoyed the Salted Caramel Chai. This flavor was really unique and I loved the buttery sweetness with spice — Yum! The Ginger and Tumeric blend will be great for winter when colds abound. It has some great health benefits! I’m looking forward to trying the Spiced Nana Mint flavor iced —this is also a really unique blend I’ve never seen elsewhere!
