Loose Tea with Chilli
Sometimes it is allowed to be a bit spicier. In this case, we like to use chilli peppers these days. The hot peppers, which are actually an original form of the vegetable peppers we know today, are often added to anything that needs to be spicy. And so it is only natural that chilli has also found its way into tea. We have a special delicacy in store for you: Choco Chili Chai. Let yourself be enchanted by this extraordinary combination of flavours.

Is Chilli Healthy?
Because of its spiciness, which is not everyone's cup of tea, one might think that chilli is rather unhealthy. However, this is a common misconception. The active ingredient responsible for the spiciness is called capsaicin and has several positive properties for the body. On the one hand, the substance has an antioxidant effect, which means that free radicals can be intercepted in the cells. Secondly, this active ingredient can lower cholesterol levels in a natural way. The active ingredient also ensures good blood circulation and physical heat production, which can also have a positive effect on muscle pain or soreness.
It is always said that sour makes you happy, but spicy can do the same. The burning sensation from eating fresh chilli peppers increases the release of adrenaline and endorphins. The former suppresses pain, the latter increases well-being. Last but not least, chilli acts as an aphrodisiac.
Chilli Tea Recipe
If you now are interested in chilli tea, we recommend the following tea recipe: Take a fresh chilli pepper (remember, the smaller the hotter), clean and wash it. Then split the chilli in half and remove the seeds before cutting the pod into small pieces. Now put them into a tea strainer - we recommend our large glass with strainer and lid - and add two teaspoons of pure organic rooibos tea. Fill the glass with boiling water and let the chilli tea steep for five minutes. If you are particularly keen to experiment, you can also use our Strawberry-Pepper-Rooibos tea as a base. Enjoy.
