After many customer requests, we knew we needed to create a chai. But, we wanted to come up with a chai that was a little more interesting than the others on the market. Before working on chai blends, I told our Tea Master I first needed to cup Hojicha.
Every year since I can remember, I have baked Russian Tea Cookies (also called Mexican Wedding Cakes) for my Dad’s birthday. They are his favorite. And he always asked for me to bring a cup of black tea for him to drink alongside his pile of powdered sugared butter balls.
