Herbologie’s herbal teas are made with the finest local ingredients and utilizing the power of probiotic fermentation. We carry two types of their tea, Flexy and Pure Serenity on our online shop. Today, we will use Flexy to make Chai Tea Latte.  Flexy is the herbal tea blended with many spices like turmeric, ginger and cinnamon. It tastes a little spicy and may be a bit strong if you normally like mild tea and drink it alone.  If so, why don’t you try to make a ridiculously easy Chai Tea Latte with this Flexy tea and Milk?  You can imitate the taste of sweet and mild Chai Tea Latte that you usually drink at a cafe. Also it is fun to try different style even if you like to drink straight tea.


The first thing you are probably surprised when you open the cover at first is the color.

Orange.

How does it get its orange color?

Turmeric, ginger and cinnamon…

It’s a punchy spicy smell as well as the color.

It is stimulating and tasty to drink straight but sometimes miss milder.

Here’s a simple recipe to make chai tea latte with milk.

Here is a creamy white Chai Tea Latte with slight flavor of spices.

We could make the complicated deep flavor that we thought we could only find at a cafe.  

The hot and subtly sweet drink goes down easily and warms your entire body.

 Add more sugar or honey as you like.

 It would be good to drink before bed or to warm up on a cold morning.

 A small happiness for daily life.
