We would like to salute the Dapper Colonel, as we introduce this absolutely world class tea to the positive vibes portion of our vibe spectrum. This tea is held close to our hearts at Chai Ghai, as we have named it after our esteemed Grandfather, Col. Surinder Dev Maini, who at 94, still enjoys a cup of this orange pekoe daily. Col. Maini while enlisted, would retire in his private quarters for the night, and enjoy a cup of orange pekoe with his beautiful wife. It was a relaxing part of his daily reprieve; one we are delighted to share with you. This small batch craft tea finds its origins in Sri Lanka and is made from outstanding orange pekoe leaves that can be enjoyed by all tea lovers. It is a heart-warming tea with many health inducing and antioxidant properties that work to counteract free radicals in the body. Much like Colonel Maini, Chai Ghai’s Dapper Colonel radiates positivity, love and just a hint of intrigue; making it a must try.
