Aromatic Maltese Carob tangled up with Cocoa Shells for a unique Maltese Chai
From: 9.50

A unique indulgent speciality! Tgħanniqa Chai is an aromatic yet velvety Maltese tea blend with carob pods blended with a strong Ceylon black tea, creamy Cocoa Shells, Orange peel and Cinnamon. Carob comes from a sweet evergreen tree that is grown heavily in the Maltese country roads and other Mediterranean countries. The aromatic Maltese carob and cocoa shells make this blend an interesting combination for when you need a chocolate punch. With a subtle spice taste, it’s the perfect Maltese Chai. The Ceylon black tea base gives you the option to enjoy this cup with milk or be adventurous and steep it directly in milk!

Try the Tghanniqa Blend with Ceylon & Maltese Carob.

Our Maltese generations of old used carob as a healthy beverage to boost their immune system, sooth sore throats and coughs on a rainy day and aid digestion.

Carobs were a staple diet with early civilizations, with archeological findings indicating that  early Egyptians used carobs as a natural sweetener.

Carobs have also been called St. John’s bread or locust bean because the pods were once thought to have been the “locusts” that were eaten by John the Baptist in the Wilderness.

That story was apparently wrong, as the prophet actually ate migratory locust.

It is also hinted that early jewellers and goldsmiths in the Middle East used to weigh gold and gemstones against the seeds of the carob tree.

A Carob pod takes between 11 to 12 months to develop and ripen. By then the seeds are bursting with complex sweet and aromatic flavours that provide  a hint of chocolate and earthy root herbs. Characterised by a rich, deep red colour, this special tea blend provides a delicate balance of  sweet and savoury indulgence all in one steamy cup.
