Xocolatl Chai - Aztec Chocolate Masala
Blended In-House

Chocolate, discovered by the Aztecs, has been a long-standing popular hot drink, especially with spices such as cinnamon and cayenne. Here at Red Lodge Books & Tea, we reflect the desire with our new Xocolatl Chai. Organic cacao nibs wrap around a rich shu pu-erh base, real Mexican vanilla, cardamom, extra cinnamon, a touch of ginger and cloves, and just the tiniest sprig of cayenne to boost the flavor just right. This Aztec chocolate chai is sure to satisfy!
