On a cold day, this chai blend might just give you the Sisu you need to tough it out. It is difficult to translate, but Sisu is a Finnish word that means guts, grit, perseverence. Chai Sisu contains black tea, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, orange peel, anise seed. The anise, cardamom, and clove are spices especially loved by Finns. Kippis!
