This is a spiced chai like no other: Inspired by Sri Lanka’s southern cuisine, it's a strong black tea blended with locally grown hot chili peppers. Then cinnamon and nutmeg are added to provide a beautiful counter balance. Like Sri Lanka's mythical Makara, Dragon Fire seizes the palate with spiciness and intricate sweet flavors. The tea itself comes from Sri Lanka's Sinharaja Rain Forest region where it is hand-picked and ground up to create an amazing combination!

About Our Sri Lankan Tea

Formerly called Ceylon, the island of Sri Lanka has produced some of the finest tea in the world for the last 150 years. While the tea industry survived Sri Lanka’s 30-year-long civil war intact, it has also bolstered the entire country’s continued economic recovery since the war's end in 2009.

Dragon Fire is really fire!

I tried Dragon Fire on a cold and rainy day and it was perfect! While I normally drink my tea straight, I added a little raw sugar and warm milk and it was amazing. The use of locally grown hot chili peppers to the spices of cinnamon and nutmeg blended with black tea was unique, delicious, and just enough heat to make it interesting. I have enjoyed it several times since the first day it arrived and it will definitely be in regular rotation among my Rakkasan picks!
