Masala Chai is the classic Indian refreshment popularized by roadside tea shops. This all-time must-have is infused with a mix of Indian spices like cloves, ginger, black pepper, cinnamon, and cardamom. This “masala” is what gives this tea its edge, filling it with a remarkable flavour and aroma. Masala Chai is the perfect choice for those sluggish afternoons when you're trying to be your productive best.
Kahwa tea is typically green tea made with rose petals, saffron, and other spices. The fragrant and rich Kashmiri Kahwa tea is frequently served with crushed almonds or walnuts and honey and can be a delicious starter for your special afternoons. In addition, the Kashmiri Kahwa tea is a traditional herbal tea that has been used for centuries to improve digestion, making it the perfect post-lunch tea.
Earl Grey tea is the go-to choice for those busy, on-the-go afternoons. This black tea is widely consumed in England and is one of the most popular in the world. Its black tea base is infused with the oil of the bergamot orange rinds. That is what sets this tea apart. The oil adds a citrus and floral note to the tea. Sip it on as it is or create a London Fog which is an Earl Grey tea latte to make the perfect afternoon beverage!
The tricky part about evening teas is that you don't want that boost of caffeine but you do want a comforting beverage to mark the end of your workday! Here, green and red teas come to the rescue. With rich amounts of antioxidants, green tea and red tea are the healthiest of options. TGL Co. has a wide selection of these power-packed teas.
