Vegan 'Chookas Chai' Infused Cinnamon Scrolls



Oh my goodness!

Honestly my niece Kelsey Hellyer is the total best!

Not only does she hand blend and package our beautiful organic teas + tisanes with the utmost care and big time love, she is always getting creative with tea in the kitchen. Love it!


Being Vegan, she loves to find ways to incorporate tea into plant based recipes. These Vegan cinnamon scrolls, infused with our award-winning aromatic black masala chai blend Chookas Chai are so amazing! There are no words to describe how good they taste served warm with syrup, with all the rich masala chai spices having a dance off in your mouth. They are the perfect morning, afternoon or dessert time plant based treat.
