Ganesha's Wisdom - Banana Bread Masala Chai
Blended In-House

You want decadence? We've got decadence. This masala betrays conventions with a fermented Chinese shu pu-erh base, loading up on spices, adding just a hint of licorice to sweeten the aftertaste, and hitting hard with real, air-dried banana pieces. Making this as a latte gives it a stunning, incredible fruity spiced flavor. It tastes like dessert, like liquified banana bread. We know it's hard to find, but we've found it works best with Macadamia Milk and a couple teaspoons of sugar.

Brewing Suggestions

  • Use 14g (≈1½ tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz).
  • Steep 3 minutes in ¼ liter (≈8 oz) boiling (100°C/212°C) water
  • Add ¼ liter (≈8 oz) hot milk, steep another 4 minutes.
  • Strain leaves, add sugar if you like (2 tsp is what we suggest), and enjoy!

    I usually don't like shou but this is smooth without the funkiness of not-great shou. I've also served it to militant non-tea drinkers with great success. A very nicely spiced dessert tea.
