Fire Chai

Ingredients - black tea, chilli, pepper, cinnamon, clove, coriander, fennel & ginger

If you’re looking for a very special savoury brew, you’ve come to the right place.

We call this Fire Chai. Think of a warm fire, not a raging fire... warming, not burning hot.

The Fire Chai story -

'Here at Amba Estate we grow spices alongside our tea. After plucking the tea leaves, we let them wither at room temperature before gently hand-rolling them in small batches against a traditional kithul wood table to create our broken orange pekoe.

We harvest our cinnamon sticks by hand, the way they've always done. Then we strip the bark by hand with a sickle, because we know this produces the richest flavours. Finally we combine the spices with our tea leaves to make this aromatic, spicy chai that I'm very proud to share with you' - Neethanjana, Amba Estate

If you would normally go for a spicy chai, over a sweet chai tea, you’ll love this batch.

Like fine wines our teas vary according to the terrier, cultivation and season.

FAQ's

Yes! Tea is known to be packed with antioxidants to boost your immune system, fight off inflammation, and even ward off cancer and heart disease. Regularly drinking tea can have a lasting impact on your wellness. 

Flavours vary from region to region, as does the caffeine content. The climate, soil, and rainfall all effect the caffeine levels in tea as it is a natural product harvested from the camellia sinensis plant. The level of caffeine in our loose leaf teas vary. Herbal tisanes such as our Pure Peppermint and Blue Lemongrass are caffeine free.

Fully fermented black tea leaves which are the basis of all breakfast teas contain the highest amount of caffeine. Green tea has less caffeine, followed by white tea which contains a minimal amount of caffeine. While you will get a caffeine hit from your pot of tea, it is significantly less than you would from coffee.

Artisinal loose leaf teas are created in smaller batches and hand-picked from single estates. We know exactly where all our tea is grown, and who grows it. We want to be sure that each bag of tea we sell is doing good for the local community where our favourite tea plantations are.

Absolutely! Tea is made to be brewed and shared and it's the perfect gift for the novice or expert tea drinker in your life. If you're unsure of what kind of tea to gift - you could choose a gift card or flick us an email and we'll help you decide!
