Chimney Fire Winter Chai

It wouldn’t be winter without foggy mornings, long walks in the Surrey Hills and a delicious coffee to match the scene. After weeks of trialing various combinations, and tasting all kinds of brew methods - we give you our Winter Chai.

What is a Winter Chai?

A fusion of two old favourites - our in-house experienced barista / coffee mixologist, Cephas, has created a drink that is a perfect mix of coffee and tea.

To create the Chimney Fire Winter Chai, we teamed up with local family run tea business, Teasup and have blended their Tumeric Chai No.9 Blend with our Colombia Finca Las Cruces. Try it black or add milk for the perfect blend of tea, spices, coffee and sweetness, almost like melted ginger bread. The flavours are stunning!

Brew it at home
