Masala chai literally translates to spiced tea. There are as many different recipes as people making it. We blend this tea in house with a classic recipe so that it is spicy and full bodied.
Chai is such an integral part of Indian culture that it is virtually impossible to avoid when traveling through any part of the Indian sub-continent. Even when fresh cold drinking water cannot be found, you will inevitably encounter a chai-wallah, or chai seller, yelling out,"chayee! chayee!" Indian chai is typically made using a rich black tea, usually an Assam, and brewing it in heavy milk with cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper. The drink produces a warm soothing effect and engenders a wonderfully calming effect on the body. Brew this tea piping hot and scoop in some sugar to help open up the exotic flavor of this spicy blend. Just try and stop after one cup!
All organic Assam black tea, ginger root, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, and black pepper
