Ginger Cookie - Herbal Dessert Masala
Blended In-House — Caffeine-Free

An absolutely delightful caffeine-free masala chai made with South African rooibos, ginger root, cardamom pods, cinnamon chips, caramel, cloves, black peppercorns, and a touch of lemongrass. When you brew this, it comes out like a liquid ginger cookie!

This tea is great for cooking, too. Take a look at this recipe for chai molasses cookies from the Tea With Gary blog!

    Legit chai for those caffeine abstainers

    Posted by Marc T. on 9th Jun 2021

    I was a deep lover of all black teas in various forms and tried all kinds of blends including while traveling in India. It was a sad day when I gave up all caffeine to fall asleep more readily and it led me to finding the Phoenix Pearl tea blends. This mix is one of the best I’ve ran across - it’s rich and deep, can be prepared with same method as classic Indian chai or just quickly seeped (worth doing it the former way though). Pick this one up!

    It Actually Smells like a cookie

    This tea is lovely. It is very fragrant and very smooth. I like it just with some honey.

    I’m already very fond of Vulcan’s Forge, but it’s caffeinated so what to drink in the afternoon or evening? Look no further - Ginger Cookie is a great no caf alternative. A little honey and half & half and I’m a happy guy.

    A new favorite

    Posted by Lance Gallup on 19th Sep 2020

    I don’t detect a lot of ginger in this - more ‘pumpkin-y’. It’s still delicious and no caffeine, so you can enjoy it anytime without concern. A little honey and it’s dessert in a mug!

    Not like any ginger cookie I've tasted.

    Was expecting more of an actual ginger hint, it 's not terrible, but very pumpkin pie tasting to me. The spiciness is good.

    Marsala chai

    Posted by Sharon on 6th Jan 2019

    This tea is so very yummy! I make it with half milk and half water plus one packet of Splenda for a dash of sweetness. There is no caffeine so you can drink it at any time! Almost like a liquid desert

    My Favorite!

    Posted by Jenny on 16th Nov 2015

    I tried this Chai while visiting on vacation. I had to take some home with me. I was running really low and I had to order more! This is my favorite so far.

    best herbal chai

    Posted by jami on 11th Nov 2014

    I enjoyed a cup in our shop this past September and love it. I also ordered more after purchasing a 2 oz pkg. I would love it if you would make one quite a bit more peppery and spicy I a herbal, I love it that way.
