From Tealeaves

A product of intensive blending of top-quality herbs and spices, this black tea Chai is blended for complexity and richness, honouring the spicy tradition.

This call of the chaiwallahs greets our train, a sound as familiar as the falling monsoon rains. I find myself with a tiny clay cup of sweet, milky tea with warm and welcoming spices. As the train departs, I throw my cup to the ground, returning it to the cycle of life.
Chai is the most famous of beverages from India (apart from Darjeeling) and is simply the generic word for “tea” in Hindi and Punjabi. The term was later adapted by the English to become the modern “tea.” Chai wallahs (street side vendors of hot, steaming chai) are commonly found throughout South Asia and make their Chai as tea with aromatic spices which are simmered over long periods rather than infused.

Each of our oversize teabags is strong enough to brew two cups of tea. For the chai aficionados, try our original chai blend – the Masala Black Tea Chai.

Our Master Blenders have also created an herbal version – the Herbal Spiced Chai is complex, rich, and fully caffeine-free.

This is a very traditional chai in terms of taste and character with cinnamon and cardamom being the primary notes. It never goes over the line of being too spicy, instead it’s a nice, soothing drink with a bit of a bite – just enough to warm me up on a cold winter morning.
