Chagra can be used in a variety of ways; this week, we used our rooibos and hibiscus tea blend (Jigawa), to make some DIY facial scrubs. Jigawa doesn’t only make for the perfect hibiscus infused rooibos drink, it also has really great exfoliating properties.Read more
The secret to a great cup of chai is the spice mixture, and we have done the grunt work and created a chai blend inspired by the traditional Tanzanian method of brewing chai. The blend contains a warming fusion of loose-leaf black tea, and real spices: whole black and white peppercorns, broken cinnamon sticks, cracked cardamom pods, dried ginger, cloves and nutmeg - all the ingredients required for an authentic, yet convenient cup of chai.Read more
With everything happening in the world now, we have been feeling a little bit more uneasy and anxious than usual, especially anticipating what the post-pandemic norm would be. Unfortunately, as it goes, sometimes excessive uneasiness and anxiety may trigger mild insomnia for some time. On top of everything else, sleeplessness is not something we want to add to the table. So, we are turning to tea, amongst other things, to try to ease some of the stress and induce calming sleep.Read more
Being cocooned at home has us constantly reaching into the fridge and pantry for all kinds of feel-good treats. As a lot of you are, we too are trying as much as possible to keep a healthy balance to our snacking, so we have been experimenting with tea-infused treats. For this recipe, we created some kid-friendly easy-to-make immune boosting Spearmint Berry Tea popsicles (Tea-Pops)! Homemade Tea-Pops are great because creating them can be a fun activity for the whole family, and it offers a healthy snack option for those moments when you crave something more natural.Read more
Africa is a continent bursting with life, rich history and culture. It is a land of variety, as exemplified by the diverse array of languages, art, music and cuisine that exists within its vast borders. But with such diversity, how can one go about experiencing the multitude of cultures and flavours available in Africa?Read more
This summer has been a scorcher 😅!! To beat the heat, we have gone a little crazy turning our favourite hot tea blends into cold brews (some successfully, and others we prefer not to ever try again). Jigawa, our rooibos-hibiscus blend is truly the gift that keeps on giving - it is fantastic hot, but as an iced beverage? Forgive us for tooting our own horn - but wow!Read more
