teacancompanylogoThe Tea Can Company is know for their pure, simple teas. They have limited flavors that they’ve perfected. Their tea comes from Sri Lanka, India, and China. When you order their tea, it comes in a tin that you have the option of customizing. People often buy this tea for weddings or parties since they can put what they want on the tins. I’ve been drinking a lot of different chai teas lately so I was looking forward to trying their Rooibos Chai. I was a bit skeptical since I’ve been so used to using loose leaf tea rather than tea in bags.

I put one tea bag in a mug full of steaming hot water and let it steep for about 5 minutes. I could smell the cinnamon and cardamom right away. All of the ingredients include rooibos, ginger, cinnamon, green cardamom, and vanilla flavor. When I took my first sip of this tea, I was surprised by the strength of flavor. Rooibos chai tea is typically more delicate since rooibos isn’t as strong as black tea. The Tea Can Company did a great job of creating a spicy rooibos chai that is caffeine-free and yet as hearty as a black chai. This delicious tea was also sweet and rich from the vanilla flavor. I could tell that this tea had more ginger and cardamom than other rooibos chai teas I’ve had.

After having a cup of this tea plain, I added some cream and honey. Since it is more robust, the cream simply enhanced the flavor rather than overtake it. The honey brought out more of the vanilla flavor. I drank this on a chilly, rainy day and absolutely loved it. Since this tea is in bags, it is also more convenient. You don’t have to measure out your tea or strain it before you have a sip. The health benefits include being good for arthritis, reducing the risk of cancer, and stimulating digestion. In the end I was impressed by this tea and thoroughly enjoyed it.
