A Little Goes a Long Way

You had us at cardamom


Mandala Chai Company founder Aleczondra Evans is equally excited about the taste and health benefits of her chai concentrate. Both the sweeter original and spicy formulas include cardamom, ginger, star anise and cinnamon, says Evans, noting that the combination of spices and tea may help reduce inflammation, boost metabolism and energy, and aid in digestion.

"I could go on and on. It's an all-around amazing tea!" she says.

In addition, Mandala Chai is triple-concentrated. A 16-ounce bottle ($10), for example, yields about six servings based on 3-ounces chai to 6-ounces liquid. A 32-ounce and gallon-sized bottle are also available.

Find Mandala Chai at The Rocket Market, My Fresh Basket, Ladder Coffee & Toast, Batch Bakeshop, Spokane Real Food Buyer's Co-Op and numerous local coffee shops.
