Looking for something to warm you up when the nights are cool and spirits are in the air? Look no further. Blended to commemorate the 1820 short story, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, (1783 - 1859), Sleepy Hollow Chai is all but guaranteed to ease the chills. The blend also happens to be the perfect beverage to commemorate the town of Sleepy Hollow NY, formerly known as North Tarrytown but changed to Sleepy Hollow in 1996 after residents there voted to change the name. (The town serves as Mr. Irving's final resting place.)
So, what goes into a tea named after the terrifying tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman? Pumpkin, of course. (The story goes that the horseman had the head of a pumpkin.) To this, our Master Taster added a select blend of herbs and spices, chai mix, cinnamon, and ginger pieces. The taste, it goes without saying, is to die for. Brew a pot today and raise a cup to old Ichabod himself.
