Organic Rose Petals, Biodynamic and Organic Assam CTC & Orthodox black tea, Organic Green Cardamom
Gulab City (or "rose" city in Hindi) is an ode to One Stripe Chai's hometown city - Portland, Oregon. Portland is often called the Rose City for its marine west coast climate and clay soils which are ideal for growing roses, amongst much other plant life. The city boasts many large rose gardens, including one of the oldest in the country, the International Rose Test Garden.
This blend features beautiful organic rose petals from India and also debuts our orthodox (full leaf) Assam black tea from our partner farm in Assam, India. While CTC black tea alone is great for a strong masala chai, it can overpower roses which are subtler and delicate in flavor. For this chai, we blended the perfect balance of orthodox and CTC black tea as a foundation on which the rose can shine along with some hints of cardamom. The result is a velvety chai with floral notes that we hope you will love as much as we do!

One Stripe Chai
Farah Jesani is Indian and drinking chai is basically in her blood. Her relationship and memories with chai is similar to people in the US have with coffee. That experience of being young and watching all the "adults" drinking this hot beverage religiously, anxiously waiting until she was "old enough" to have a mug of her own.
Fun Fact: She launched One Stripe Chai in Portland after being disappointed when she ordered chai lattes and found them always being too sweet or incredibly bland. The idea of One Stripe Chai fell into her lap serendipitously, the way most great ideas tend to.
