How to Use Warming and Spicy Teas

These teas are perfect for enjoyment at any time of day or year, featuring both high-caffeine and caffeine-free options to fit your taste. Filled with fragrant spices, these hearty and rigorous teas can hold up to long and aggressive brew times that will infuse your cup with bright aromatics and earthy florals for a well-balanced, nourishing, and warming cup of tea. We recommend referring to each product page to find the specific brewing ratio and temperature for these teas, but a good rule of thumb is to steep 2 grams of tea leaves or one tea sachet with 8 ounces of water, adjusting for taste.


Masala Chai — which literally means mixed-spice tea — is a special preparation of black tea invented in India, with a long and rich history spanning over 5,000 years. As this tea has grown in popularity, many tea drinkers now simply refer to Masal Chai as “chai.” Traditionally, the spices in chai teas can vary from one region in India to another, but in general, the most common spices include cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger.

Ginger root is full of aromatic compounds that not only trigger spice receptors on your tongue, but can also increase your blood circulation. This increase in circulation can lead to a temporary feeling of increased warmth.

Capsaicin is the chemical in peppers that makes them taste spicy. While some of the aromatics in our blends may have low amounts of capsaicin natural to the ingredient, it’s not present in high enough quantities to cause an intense spice.
