Our honey – infused sticky chai features honey sourced from bees re-homed by Toronto Bee Rescue. This is a wonderful family – run organization that relocates bees at risk of extermination found on private property, to the Greenbelt surrounding Toronto. Once the colony passes their health check and are re-homed in new hives, these bees produce honey for their honey company Ontario Honey Creations.
This delicious honey is blended with freshly ground whole spices and directly traded, premium black tea leaves from Emrok Estates in Kenya. Honey is a nature’s preservative, keeping those freshly ground spices and tea leaves fresh and flavourful for many months.
Perfect for making chai lattes, hot or cold.
Ingredients: Honey, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cardamom, Star Anise, Peppercorns, Cacao Shells, Fennel, Clove.
