Yogic Chai's Original Masala Chai ~ North America's Chai Champion!
Close to 200 teas were evaluated in 23 different categories. The North American Tea Championship is the only professionally judged tea competition in North America, whose goal is to distinguish the highest quality & best tasting teas commercially available in the North American marketplace.
At the North American Tea Championship, each entry is evaluated blind and through an organoleptic analysis of the following characteristics: dry leaf, brewed color, brewed aroma, brewed flavor, brewed mouth feel and brewed harmony. An overall numerical value on a 100 point scale is then calculated based on the ratings of each characteristic above.
"We were very excited when we received the good news, being that it was our third time participating and winning 1st place. Although we have won in previous years, we have continued to improve our blend. Such small & subtle improvements have proven to be in the right direction every year," says Ricardo & Angela Dacosta, founders of Yogic Chai.
Unlike other tea companies in the market that sell different varieties of teas, such as green, white, black, oolong, etc., Yogic Chai specializes solely on Masala Chai. They have become to be known as the place-to-go-to for authentic artisan chai. All their blends are made in the USA with 100% Organic Ingredients. Sold in loose form of various sizes.
Our goal for this and future years is to be able to change that, says Angela Da Costa, by offering Coffee shop owners an alternative method, a Chai pouch, sort of like a giant tea bag, which will allow them to brew their own concentrate without much labor. A process that will not only save them money but will surely increase their profits by serving a beverage that when brewed correctly, can be quite addictive and good for you.
