HAITIAN GINGER TEA

2 reviews

This blend of Haitian ginger tea crafted with two-time Top Chef alum Gregory Gourdet of Kann Restaurant is inspired by the same bold and spicy elixir he grew up drinking. Starring zingy ginger, cinnamon and star anise, we added cassia, coconut and licorice to bring you a spice-forward, bright and warming cup of tea, perfect for the season.


$5 from the sale of each tin will go to the Kann Winter Village 20 Days of Giving initiative. During the month of February, Kann is collaborating with 20 nonprofits, charities and small businesses during Black History Month that support, help build and provide funds to the community in Portland.

Spicy Yumminess

First of all, my experience with Smith Teamaker has been wonderful. I mistakenly ordered the wrong flavor of tea, and they were so accommodating with dealing with my exchange. Really great customer service. Secondly, this spicy ginger tea is phenomenal. It reminds me of a Filipino home brew called "salabat," which is a simply sliced ginger and sugar concoction that people drink when they're sick. Te JenJanm tastes like an elevated version of that. Round, spicy and complex. I love it with cream and honey.

Cassia Bark

Sumatran Spice

Often called cinnamon, cassia is a spice with a significantly different flavor profile than true cinnamon. Grown in subtropical climates, its taste varies widely by origin, and quality is judged by the volatile oil content. In Kerinci in Sumatra, cassia bark is stripped and dried year round from a revolving crop of 10 – 12 year old trees that are continuously replanted. Cassia is sweet, hot and spicy and adds fragrance to our chai blend.

Sumatra

Sumatra is located amongst the Sundar Islands in western Indonesia and is the country's second largest island after Borneo. Marco Polo was said to have visited in 1292. The cinnamon trees need to be more than ten years old before their bark is suitable for harvest.

Ginger Root

Indian Spice

Ginger, used in many cultures to enliven food and drink, is also known for its healthful qualities. A light stimulant, it can treat cold symptoms and sore throat. Ginger is cultivated most prominently in India, China, Indonesia and West Africa. After the plant flowers and the leaves die off, the roots are dug, washed, peeled and sun dried. Ginger’s spicy-sweet flavor adds spark and complexity to our Big Hibiscus.

India

India is located in Southern Asia and is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations (Indus Valley shout out). It is a country rich in history, culture, religion, geography and so much more, and has been famous since ancient times as a source for spices that continue to be coveted around the world. Our ginger comes from several regions in India and is harvested multiple times during the year.

Licorice Root

Botanical from China

Licorice root comes from a herbaceous perennial that has been used medicinally for thousands of years in both the East and West. In modern times it has also become used as an ingredient in various tea blends. Licorice root is utilized to give body and sweetness to our holiday blend, Silent Night.

China

China is located in Eastern Asia and is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations. It is also the birthplace of tea and continues to lead on innovation in every tea category. Traditional Chinese Medicine is often practiced using an array of botanicals and spices, many of whcich are grown locally, including the licorice root in our pantry. Our licorice comes from several regions in China and is harvested in the spring and fall.

Star Anise

Chinese Spice

Star Anise is a spice made from the seed pod of the illicium verum, a medium-sized evergreen shrub native to Southwest China. Star Anise derives its name from the star shape of the pod which contains a single seed on each point. Both the seeds and pods contain the sweet, distinct anise flavor and are often used in a range of culinary dishes from sweet to savory.

Vietnam

Vietnam is the eastern most country of mainland Southeast Asia and shares its northern border with China. Vietnam was incorporated under Chinese influence as early as the 3rd century BCE and over the centuries, developed its own notable culture rich in history, architecture, cuisine and much more.
