How It Tastes

Our Masala Chai blend combines pungent Assam and South India broken leaf teas blended with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves and freshly ground tellicherry peppercorns. It's a perfect balance of sweet and hot spices, blended in the traditional style of Kolkata, India. Brew it fresh and mix it with warm milk and sugar to taste.

History

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 is in the style of Kolkata tea venders.

I love this spiced tea. I grew up drinking tea and this is my winter favorite.

I used to work at Peet's Coffee but now I have been working at Mighty Leaf Tea for well over a year and I just want to say that the fusion of these two companies has been amazing and it has truly delivered the best of the two worlds together. It couldn’t make me happier to walk into a Peet's Retail Store and see both outstanding Fresh Coffee and amazing teas being sold side by side.

One of my favorite teas is Masala Chai due to the amazing and delicious combination of cinnamon and black tea and its equally great and unique aroma.

I used to love Peet's teas this one is horrible. I was so looking toward to a good cup of chai. Never again mighty leaf! I won't even try their regular black teas. What a disappointment!
