Wow! I am beyond impressed with this tea. This tea is from a small business in Toronto, which I discovered through the Toronto Tea Festival’s Instagram page. To be honest, most of the prepared chai blends I have tried have been from David’s Tea or chai-inspired blends. These were also delicious!!! :)

However, I have been on the search for something truly authentic. For me, as somebody who is South Asian, this would entail finding a masala chai blend that replicates what I would find in my grandmother’s kitchen, and I think I found it! :) Please consider supporting this small Canadian tea company if you can!

Smell: Strong, fragrant, pungent masala chai spices. When I looked at the blend, all the spices were ground, not whole. This is how my grandma usually made chai since grounding the spices lets the flavours shine.

Preparation: I made this one stove-top style with water, sugar, and milk!

Taste: This stole the show for me! It really tastes like an authentic masala chai. That is my only way of putting it. All the flavours are well-balanced. The notes I get the most are the ginger, cardamon, and fennel. The other notes are there too, but they are more so in the background. I really enjoyed this! It also has a very warming feeling that I expect from my masala chais; perfect for the winter.

Overall, a great tea blend, and the owners of this small business are lovely. Answered all my questions promptly! If you love chai, I would highly recommend this blend.

Hello everyone!

So, how did I get into tea? I think I have always had a fascination with tea. But I really got obsessed with it after watching Avatar: The Last Airbender. I loved how Uncle Iroh used tea as a way to both practice self-care and connect with others.

I aspire to do the same through my tea endeavours.

My Favourite Canadian Small Tea Businesses: (Thus far! As I explore new tea brands, I am sure this list will grow)

Dessert by Deb
The Tea Haus
The Chai Brewing Company

My Preferred Preparation:
For black teas, I prefer the stove-top method with milk and sugar. For all other teas and herbal infusions, I usually prefer having them hot without any add-ins. However, I do like an occasional iced tea! Especially for some fruity or floral blends.

My Tea Preferences:
I enjoy flavoured teas more than straight teas; however, I do have a soft spot for traditional green or oolong teas.
