Vanilla Chai Tea
Our Vanilla Chai is a zesty blend of lively Malabar Coast spices: sharp ginger, cinnamon, candy cardamom, ground pepper, cloves & nutmeg with a creamy vanilla finish. Indian chai tea is usually brewed in heavy milk and produces a wonderfully warm and soothing effect on the body.
Chai tea is such an integral part of Indian culture that it is virtually impossible to avoid when traveling through any part of the country. Whenever fresh cold drinking water cannot be found, you will inevitably encounter a "chai-wallah," or chai seller, yelling out "chayee! chayee!" While riding the rails in India, the call of the chai-wallah can be heard at every stop offering their delicious hot drink. It is not uncommon for a chai-wallah to board a train in the middle of the night and wake up passengers to sell chai. The chai comes in small clay cups that customers can just throw from the train windows when finished!
Be sure to turn your container of chai upside-down a few times as the powdered spices can settle at the bottom of a bag during transit, or over time on a shelf. Use one teaspoon per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes.
