Trying to duplicate a brand of discontinued tea. help

Postby joelcoqui » Jan 25th, '13, 10:05

Celestial Seasonings use to make this fantastic tea. I bought all possible stock 2 years ago and now sadly, I am out. does anyone have a suggestion on how to get this great flavor of VANILLA GINGER GREEN TEA CHAI ?
Here are the ingredients. Green tea, Black tea, cinnamon, ginger, roasted chickory, natural vanilla and ginger flavors with other natural flavors (nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, black pepper) containes soy lecithin.
This is soooo good with creamer.
Thanks.

Similar to yours but in loose leaf form minus the green tea

Ingredients for chai are easy to find in an international food market, easy to grind and mix your own, try going heavy on the cardamom ummmmmmmmm :mrgreen:

As a base you could use something like this...

You may end up just enjoying this on its own, and it will be leagues better then the black tea that is used in those style of blends

to give it that green tea flavour (if the CS one tastes green to you)

a good stir after you add in the creamer or whole milk

I'll keep my eye out on that Celest S., we have lots of old nutrition stores around here with neglected old boxes of tea bags. Maybe I can uncover a few for you if you are still enamoured with that specific tea.

I might move this topic down to the Flavored Tea Forum of TeaChat ... unless Joel is looking for a specific Signature Blend from Adagio?!?!?
