About this tea

Tea Story

In India, “Chai” is the word for tea, and “Masala” means a mixture of spices. This cup is traditionally prepared using local tea boiled in a mixture of water and milk, with lots of sugar, and whatever spices are popular. There are probably as many variations on the recipe as there are households in India, but the general result is a spicy, sweet and milky tea. 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

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Use 1 teabag for each cup of water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil; steep tea for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the strength desired.
Mix in 1 teaspoon of sugar or honey to taste.
Add heated milk and enjoy.

They had a box of this at my work. I tried it and am totally hooked. I am not a big tea drinker, but could drink this all day long. I LOVE IT! It is suggested to drink with milk and sugar, but I think that would ruin the exquisite taste for me.

I recently received a thank you gift from a cousins baby shower. It was a little tea set with 1 Masala Chai Tea Bag. I decided to try the Tea with Milk and fell in love with the taste, it was so tasty and smooth. I finally purchased my first bag. YUM!!

Peet's Masala Chai is the best I've had, so aromatic and tasty! I noticed more woodsy bark pieces in my latest shipment. I'm guessing it''s from the cardamon pod. I've been drinking Peet's Masala Chai for several years, and it''s always incredible, but this is the best yet! Keep up the good work! Yeah! Marsha from Lambertville, NJ.

This is the BEST masala chai I have tasted outside of India. A perfect portion of each spice.

This is the only chai tea bag I've found that actually tastes like real Indian chai. Spicy and complex...not like the powdered junk they serve in coffee shops.
