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
