About Ginger Guru Chai

Tea Type : Herbal Tea

Tea Forté’s Ginger Guru Chai is an exceptional herbal tisane featuring the bright flavors of lemongrass, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and other spices, with hints of peach and red fruit for added sweetness. While the Indian tradition of spiced tea involves only black tea leaves, its global evolution has made way for additional tea varieties like this gorgeous herbal infusion. Free of caffeine, tisanes like Ginger Guru offer a calming cup of comfort and warmth at any time of day or night.

Ginger Guru Chai’s character is one of complexity. Balancing a ginger-forward opening with subtle fruit flavors in the background, it offers a smooth-drinking experience that both soothes and enlivens the spirit. One of the longest-exported spices from the tropical lowlands of India, ginger has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years across many parts of Asia and the Middle East, lauded for its ability to soothe the stomach and throat. Its popularity began to spread through Europe with ancient Greeks and Romans who benefited from the spice trade.

As for this blend’s other ingredients, cardamom dates back to the Vedic era of India around 3,000 B.C., when it was widely used as medicine; it later served as a popular perfume note during the Greek and Roman empires. It’s joined by lemongrass, a culinary herb with a slightly citrusy taste, used in many traditional teas and curry dishes across Asia and Africa. Together with cardamom, cinnamon, and fruit flavorings, these spices combine for a cozy tea blend with a slightly sweet finish.

Ginger Guru Chai may be enjoyed with milk or sugar to taste, and makes for a delicious latte when prepared with warm, frothed milk. Tea enthusiasts may also enjoy it without accompaniment, allowing the blend to stand alone and unfurl its flavors one by one

      Nice Kick

      It is a change for me. Usually I get White Ginger Pear is my #1 favorite. Vanilla Pear is my #2 favorite. And so far Ginger Guru Chai is my third favorite. A little different than the pear with more kick. stronger flavor but I liked it.

      Amazing hot or iced

      I didn't think this tea could taste any better, but one hot day, with few other options, I iced it. Refreshing. Exotic. A hint of sweetness. A bit of ginger. I will definitely try this again, both hot and iced.

      Can't stop drinking it!

      Bought this on a whim and was pleasantly surprised by the spicy taste and soothing feeling it gave to my throat. This will become a mainstay in my tea collection, especially with the chilly days of fall coming!

      I thought that I tried every ginger tea without finding any that I liked, then I tried Ginger Guru last Christmas and was blown away by the taste and the perfect spices that linger in your taste buds after you swallow it!

      Great Chai Tea

      This isn't like other chair teas I have had. It is subtle and a great afternoon drink.

      Not as strong as I like

      I need more ginger flavor and less licorice. Some reviewers said this had a strong ginger taste but I think its just average. It’s a good tea, I just used a little more than recommended and added ginger syrup to sweeten.
