When you’re in New Mexico, you quickly learn that chile is part of the culture here. Our Chimayo Chai honors that tradition by including just enough crushed red chile flakes in our chai tea to add the right amount of heat! Enjoy it in the classic way as a sweet, milky chai—or, if you’re brave, try it straight for a fiery cup.

Cups Per Package

This tea is carefully blended and packaged by hand in a reusable tin or a resealable kraft bag. Our 4 oz. tin or kraft bag makes approximately 35 - 40 cups of tea. Our 8 oz. kraft bag makes approximately 70 - 80 cups.


Black tea, crushed red chile peppers, cinnamon bark, cardamom, ginger root, cloves, natural cinnamon flavor.

Tasting Notes

Bold and spicy, with notes of cinnamon and clove and a lingering heat.

How To Brew Chimayo Chai

Use 1 heaping teaspoon per 6 oz. water. Heat water to boiling. Steep for 4 to 5 minutes.

We recommend preparing Chimayo Chai using a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter. These brewing methods result in a richer, more flavorful cup.

Chimayo Chai Caffeine Content

Black tea contains a moderate amount of caffeine, less than half as much as coffee per cup.

Chimayo Chai Benefits

Black tea boosts energy and is a lower-caffeine alternative to coffee.

Ginger helps to soothe nausea and aid digestion.

Cinnamon supports the immune system and helps with focus.

A CC little too much chili peppers for me.


The chili pepper adds a nice favor boost. I started adding chili too all my Artful Teas. I love the metal tin the teas come in. Keeps all fresh. Thanks Artful tea all the teas I've bought are so fresh and full of favor.

Love this spicy tea!

Love the red chile, gives it just the right amount of kick. It’s got a rich, bold taste, and is one of my favorites. This is the 3rd or 4th bag I’ve ordered…I’ve lost track! I will definitely be ordering more!
