DONA Zero Waste Spice Dust | Masala Chai
We upcycle these spices from our brewing process to create a light, aromatic powder to dust over DONA lattes.
Small steps add up. After brewing, we send what we cannot reuse to McEnroe Organic Farm in Upstate New York to be composted— that’s over 400 gallons of food scraps diverted from landfills each week. Less waste = a healthier supply cycle.
Latte ready. How to pour our signature lunar latte:
- Mix DONA concentrate equal parts with milk in a steam pitcher
- Steam to desired texture and temperature
- Pour into desired cup
- Using a to-go lid - slightly larger than the drink cup - cover half of the top of the latte
- Using a small wire mesh sieve, dust DONA spice blend over the top of the drink
- Set aside lid for later use, and serve a crescent moon dusted DONA latte
1.8 oz jar
Ingredients: cinnamon, cardamom, black tea, cloves, black peppercorn
Although I miss going to coffee shops, this chai makes me feel like I am getting that experience at home. I tend to enjoy the chai on the more bold/spicy side. If you do too, I would suggest you purchase the flavoring spice that is sold separately.
add extra punch to your chai
I love the flavor of the spice dust. I use it in all my baking as well as to top off my daily dirty chai latte. It’s especially good in my homemade apple pie. Plus I love the fact that nothing is wasted in making the chai concentrate. What a great idea!
This Chai has more flavor than any other, and I've tried them all. I am obsessed. It's also a pleasure finding something unsweetened; a drop of honey does the trick. If only it was sold in larger quantities.
Just tried Dona masala chai 1st time and I’m not disappointed. It was super easy to put together: add milk and sugar and heat. Perfect as we head into colder weather.
