Ingredients: roasted Cacao Beans, Ginger, Cinnamon, Turmeric, Star Anise, Cardamom and Cloves.
A rich and fragrant blend of roasted Hawaiian cacao beans and spices, our Chocolate Chai is not only delicious but excellent for your health! Cacao beans are a great source of antioxidants while both ginger and cinnamon help to lower blood sugar levels. Ginger aids brain function by increasing clarity and memory. Star Anise contains many beneficial components. The oil produced from star anise contains thymol, terpineol and anethole, which is used for treating cough and flu. Like ginger, star anise helps to improve digestion, alleviate cramps and reduce nausea. Consuming tea containing star anise after meals helps treat digestive ailments such as bloating, gas, indigestion and constipation. Cardamom has been an important part of Tibetan medicine for centuries because of its high doses of Vitamin C. Turmeric contains the compound curcumin which is scientifically-proven to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer's and cancer. It's a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.

I'm so happy to be able to have this shipped to my home in Washington State! I bought a package at the Hilo market and loved it so much, I went back for more, but the vendor wasn't there. The blend of spices are enriched perfectly with the roasted cacao. I enjoy this latte-style, with 2% milk or half & half. I did grind it a bit, and use 1 T of that per cup, to make it a little bit spicier, but it's wonderful either way. Once the temperatures climb around here, I'll try it iced! I'll also be trying some of the other blends.
