Beloved in Zanzibar's kitchens and street stalls, our Chai is warm, comforting and ethereally fragrant. The archipelago's prized pink cloves are blended with locally sourced cinnamon, cardamom, lemongrass and orange peel to create an East African homage to a beloved Indian masala. Stir into tea or coffee for an aromatic boost, or add to desserts from banana bread to rice pudding for zing and complexity.

Make it a gift set with all 3 of our brand-new Zanzibar origin blends: Chai, Curry, Tandoori.

SOURCING

Sourcing image

We source our Chai blend from a cooperative of smallholder farmers on the Zanzibar islands off of the eastern coast of Tanzania. Many of these same families have been growing pepper and other spices (including our Cinnamon Verum, Pemba Cloves and Stone Nutmeg) for generations.


All of the spices from our partner cooperative in Zanzibar are grown on an EU-certified organic farm.


Meet the Farmer: Bwana Mohammed and Farooq are pictured walking on a vanilla vine-lined farm trail that is part of the cooperative in Zanzibar.
