Galangal Root

Galangal root, also known as blue ginger, is a typical ingredient used in Thai cuisine that has antispasmodic and antibacterial properties.
This spice originated in Indonesia, and over time has become truly valued in the world for its health benefits and a sharp taste that resembles a pine like aroma. In Thai culture, galangal root known as “kah” is believed to have magical powers.
Therefore, this spice is considered to be a natural aphrodisiac besides its other great benefits for emotional and spiritual balance.
We import our galangal root from Thailand.

Coconut blossom sugar

Coconut blossom sugar, also known as palm sugar or coco sap sugar, is a natural sweetener that has a very sweet and caramel like taste.
This sugar that is made from the coconut palm’s sap of cut flower buds is what has been used for ages in the regions of Southeast Asia, and is now getting more and more popular all over the world. We make sure we only use organic natural sweetener coconut blossom sugar that has a plethora of health benefits to offer.
We make sure we import the best organic coconut blossom sugar from the world’s largest producer in Indonesia.

Star Anise

Star Anise is a star shaped spice indigenous to China and Vietnam.
This spice comes from a small, evergreen anise tree, and it has a taste that resembles fennel tarragon and licorice.
In the past, Mandarins used it as a breath freshener chewing the entire dry fruit for several minutes straight.
Star Anise reached Europe only in the 17th century, and since then it has become an essential ingredient used in cooking.
This spice is known for its health benefits having antifungal, antibacterial and antioxidant properties.
We import star anise from Vietnam.

Cloves

The clove tree is thought to have been imported to China about 2000 years ago. Soon after, its popularity spread over the entire European continent.
Cloves have great analgesic, antiviral and antibacterial properties which is why they are widely used in the traditional Indian and Chinese medicines.
We get the best cloves from the Moluccas also known as the Maluku Islands.

Piment

Allspice is a spice with a very exclusive name particularly due to its taste that resembles a combination of all spices such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, etc. It is cultivated in the Western hemisphere in the rainforests of South and Central America.
Mayans used it to make chocolate whilst the Arawaks used it to make mincemeat.
Unfortunately, this dried unripe fruit is not very popular in Europe particularly because of the failed attempts at transplanting its production to Eastern regions.
Even so, allspice is nowadays an indispensable ingredient in many households that is both flavorful and healing.
The world’s greatest supply of allspice comes from Jamaica, and that is why we make sure this is where we’re getting allspice from.

Lavender is a fragrant herb that originated somewhere in the Mediterranean, India and Middle East.
This flowering plant of the mint family dates back 2500 years ago.
Ancient texts suggest that the Egyptians used it as a perfume and the Romans used it to scent the air, baths and hair. It is also believed that lavender essential oil is one of the holy herbs used in the preparation of the Holly Essence and Nard, also known as Spikenard.
Today, the healing properties of this aromatic herb are well-known in the world, and that is why we make sure we import it from some of the most fragrant lavender fields in Provence, France.

Honey Powder

Honey is a natural sweetener originated somewhere in Southeast Asia and tropical parts of Africa.
It traces back to 5,500 B.C. when Egyptians used honey not only as a sweetener but also as a present to their Gods and an indispensable ingredient in beverages, medicines, etc.
The Greeks used it as a healing medicine for the sick whilst Romans, discovering its great culinary properties, incorporated honey into dishes.
The importance of honey continued to grow until the Renaissance, yet it became less used when sugar production had began.
We use premium quality Canadian honey in all our Molina Chai products.

Sandalwood tea- benefits beyond fragrance

Sandalwood is the second most expensive tree in the entire world with an incredibly aromatic fragrance woven into the heritage of India.
Its taste is described the following way – “Menthol on the inhale, and sandalwood/incense on the exhale”.
Its history is 4000 years old being mentioned in many Chinese and Sanskrit manuscripts.

Sandalwood essential oil also plays an important role in Buddhism being considered one of the 3 incenses integral to Buddhism practice.

Cardamom

Cardamom is an extremely strong spice which is indigenous to India (Malabar coast) with numerous health benefits.
It delivers a pure delight taste to the Molina Chai.
A member of the ginger family, cardamom follows saffron and vanilla on the list of most expensive spices. The harvest is labor intensive.
Grown on plantations, primarily in India and Guatemala, the tall plant flowers for 8 or 9 months of the year to produce green pods.
Cardamom, known as a natural detoxifier, helps to eliminate toxins out of your body.

Cacao

The origins of Cacao dated back to Aztec civilization in 2000 B.C., and today are grown in Mexico and Guatemala.
The Mayans and Aztecs consumed Chocolate bitter and often added chilies.
The common people used it as a spice, while the royalty drank it straight and bitter.
In Latin America, Cacao is often used in its original role as a bitter spice. Cacao is known to have therapeutic properties of calming the senses by releasing the “happy hormones” in the body.

Black tea

The unique taste of the Mesoamerican Molina Chai combines authentic Indian spice blend with a hint of lavender and the nutty flavor of almond extract.
A fine explosion of many tantalizing tastes formed, reinforced by another important ingredient; cocoa, being lifted to the palate by the subtle spiciness of the Chile Pepper on the tongue.

Chili Pepper

Chili peppers originated in Central America. After the so called Columbian Exchange, many cultivars of chili pepper spread across the world, used for both food and traditional medicine.
Besides capsaicin, chili peppers also contain antioxidants, as well as vitamin C and carotenoids, which also help improve insulin regulation in the body.

Black Pepper

While pepper originally belongs to South India, it's grown in other tropical countries as well.
It's played a vital role in history, and has been considered as an important spice from time immemorial.
In ancient Greece , it was also used as currency. To make black pepper, the peppercorns must be plucked just before ripening, left to ferment and then dried until they shrivel and turn black.
For Molina Chai we use the Malabar black Pepper form India with its mildly dark, slightly bitter flavor.

Bourbon Vanilla

Vanilla Bourbon is a sweet spice with a smooth and strong fragrance, the second most expensive after saffron, that comes from an orchid growing up trees.
It originated somewhere in Mesoamerica, however it is nowadays produced all over the world.
The ancient Totonac Indians of Mexico were the first ones to use flavorful vanilla pods in cooking. Soon after, vanilla beans have been introduced to Aztecs, and later on to the world.
These days, the world’s largest production of Bourbon Vanilla comes from the Bourbon Islands in Madagascar, hence its name, so this is where we import it from.

Turmeric Extract

Turmeric and Ginger extracts constitute the main ingredients in the Molina Chai Concan Golden Milk recipe. Turmeric extracts are absorbed faster by your body. The body does not need to break down a liquid extract, allowing its health benefits to be readily accessible. The turmeric extract is 10 times more concentrated and cleaner than a traditional tumeric powder.

Turmeric Powder

Ground turmeric has a mildly aromatic orange and ginger-like fragrance with a sharp, subtly bitter taste. Turmeric is obtained from the root of a leafy plant in the ginger family. Turmeric is a key ingredient in curry powder and is widely used in South East Asian cuisine as well as Indian dishes.

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Unlike refined coconut oils, the Organic Virgin Coconut Oil we use for Molina Chai Concan Golden Milk is not hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized. It is produced using the same methods farmers have used for centuries. Flesh from only the finest, organically grown coconuts is shredded and cold-pressed to create coconut milk, then filtered and separated to extract only the highest-quality oil.
Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL cholesterol)  in your body, but also help convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterols.

Ginger Extract

Ginger extract, made from the ground root of the ginger plant, has been a medicinal staple in many parts of Asia for thousands of years. Molina Chai uses the ginger and turmetic extract as the main ingredient is the Concan Golden Milk. Although ginger is known as a natural treatment for stomach problems, ginger extract, available in capsules, powders, liquid and topical cream forms, may benefit people with arthritis, skin wounds.
Like other plant-based extracts, ginger extract is readily absorbed by your body.
