Masala Chai Tea
Our Masala Chai Tea has a complex, traditional Masala flavor, is somewhat less peppery than the old version and is considerably less expensive. Black tea flavored with ginger root, cinnamon, green cardamom, ginger and vanilla flavor.
Chai is typically made using a rich black tea, usually an Assam, and is traditionally brewed in heavy milk with a mixture of spices. Each recipe can be different depending upon the spices used. Indian chai is often referred to as Masala Chai. The word "chai" literally means "tea." Different languages use various forms of this word - for example Portuguese call it "cha," Hindus call it "chai," and in Chinese the sound of the symbol for tea sounds very much like "cha." "Masala" is the word for the mixture of the various spices - hence Masala Chai.
Use one teaspoon per cut of fresh boiling water and steep for 3-5 minutes.
Average Customer Rating
I'm generally disappointed by chai mixes, but this was surprisingly good. I powered through my four ounces in record time and apparently now I'm back for more.
I am quite happy with this chai. It has great flavor and scent. I got it on sale to try it and will considering buying it again.

I had been searching for chai tea to make that would most closely resemble the chai I fell in love with in India. Thankfully, I stumbled across this Masala Chai when visiting in Fort Collins. I use the Masala Chai as my base and then add a pinch or two more of my favorite Indian spices to make an awesome cup of Indian Masala Chai. Thanks for such a great product! I am sold!
