From Simpson & Vail

Chai Masala (Spiced Tea) is a tea blend with origins in India. It is traditionally a mix of black tea and spices that is steeped in milk with sweeteners added to it.

This Chai blend is formulated to brew in less time than when making traditional Chai. For this tea we have blended black teas with spices and added natural flavor to enhance the spiciness inherent in Chai Masala tea blends. This tea brews to an amber cup with an exotic spice aroma and taste.

Ingredients: Black teas, organic cinnamon pieces, organic anise seeds, organic cloves, natural spice flavor and organic cardamom pods.

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Simpson & Vail Advent Calendar – Day 17

(originally written November 17th)

Hm, not all that excited for this one. I’m not big on masala chai, and I wasn’t too impressed by S&V’s French Vanilla Chai.

But actually, this one is quite good! The base tea is hefty and brisk, even a tad bitter. It stands up well to the spice. The strongest spice here is the clove, followed by cinnamon and anise. I’m not sure I taste cardamom, but to me it’s often easily overwhelmed by clove.

I’m not sure I feel the need to stock a masala chai blend, but if I did this would be a good choice. It’s not too strong to drink plain, but is definitely hefty enough to stand up to milk.
