Masala Chai is a traditional Indian blend of warm spices and black tea. Ours starts with a strong base of Nilgiri black tea. Bits of ginger root, cardamom, anise seed, cinnamon, and coriander are added to give it a classic “chai” taste. Commonly prepared with milk and sweetener, many of our customers enjoy making chai lattes from our Masala Chai blend. Organic. Caffeinated.
Our Masala Chai and Organic Kashmiri Chai are our two most popular “traditional” chai blends. While both share a close flavor profile, the anise gives the Masala a smoother, sweeter flavor compared to the Kashmiri. It has a nice balance of spices and is overall is slightly less spicy, robust, and astringent, which make it equally enjoyable steeped in water or as a latte.
Masala Chai can be steeped in water or in a mix of milk and water.
