Show Description

To honor the complex themes of The Night of the Iguana, this is an equally complex chai. A full-bodied black Assam imparts the chai with a wonderful depth. Next, white chocolate, caramel, and a heady blend of spices from the Malabar Coast of India were added to the mix - sharp ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, and black pepper.

Extra Info:

The Night of the Iguana is often considered to be the last major artistic, critical, and box office success for Tennessee Williams, the distinguished American playwright - and noted tea lover. The play features a captive iguana that is tied up to the edge of a veranda while a cast of characters discuss their sometimes tormented sexual relationships.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 5 minutes.

Other Brewing Options:

Make a "Chai Latte" without a milk steamer:
1) Use 1.5 teaspoons of Night of The Iguana and steep for 5 minutes.
2) While the tea is steeping take heavy cream, add in some vanilla extract, sugar, and a touch of boiling water. Shake the cream vigorously (to simulate the steaming process)
3). When the tea is ready, pour the cream mixture in. You even get a nice layer of froth on top!

Ingredients:

Black tea, white chocolate, chopped and powdered ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, natural flavors ,

Origin:

Sri Lanka, India

A lovely, earthy chai. Not as sweet as I would have guessed, given the white chocolate, but great for a chilly fall evening. I highly recommend adding vanilla extract, as mentioned in the "additional info" - though it certainly doesn't NEED it.

I picked up some of this when I was visiting my sister and two weeks later I had to order more off the website. Delicious.

This tea is so wonderfully satisfying! I find that I enjoy it as much as I do my coffee...and with a splash of cream it is perfection! Have had to make 2 trips back to replenish my supply but this time was wiser and purchased the bigger bag! I look forward to it every day!!!

I love this tea...it was recommended on my first visit to NM Tea Company so I just bought a small amount. After having it for a few days I was back for more. The flavors just bond together perfectly, it's my new favorite.

When I run out of Night of the Iguana, I CRY! It's so good. Complex and deep flavors. When I have friends over for tea, it is the most requested "please may I have some more" tea. And I have a lot of tea!
