Our Masala Chai blend combines pungent Assam and South India broken leaf teas blended with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves and freshly ground tellicherry peppercorns. Brew it fresh and mix it with warm milk and sugar to taste.

Brewing Tips

Measure 2 spoonfuls (6g) of Masala Chai into a small, preheated teapot.
Add 8-oz. of boiling water and steep for a full 5 minutes.
Separately, warm 8-oz. of milk in a saucepan, being careful not to scald.
Strain steeped tea into a heated glass. Mix in 1 teaspoon of sugar or honey to taste.
Add heated milk and enjoy.

A delightful, spicy tea. The pepper is perfect, and heightens the other spicy flavored. Delicious simmered in water, milk, and sugar and served hot. Also wonderful iced. I make a strong tea, letting it steep overnight. Strain into a pitcher. Pour over ice and add milk and sweetener. Very smooth.

I was given the Masala Chai by a friend in NYC..was excited to get home and try. Today, I'm reordering by the pound and really just love the flavor in a latte :) If you are a chai lover like me and fussy about the flavors... this won't disappoint!
