It is with high regard for the long history of the ancient city of Cochin in Kerala – India (which is also know as ‘God’s own country for its natural beauty and blissfullness) that we present this wonderful Masala Cuppa chai, one of India’s most popular beverages. Traditionally this chai would be brewed using milk instead of water. The same effect however. can be created by brewing your tea in the usual fashion and adding warm milk. Brew yourself a cup and be spiritually transported to old Cochin – truly superb tea. IMPORTANT: Turn your bag of Chai upside down a few times. The powdered spices can settle at the bottom of the bag during transit.

Additional info:

The ancient city of Cochin one of Southern India’s most important. Throughout the centuries, the city, which is situated in the state of Kerala, came under the rule of many different masters. First came the exotically named Zamorin of Kozhikode (Calicut), It is believed however that the name of the city derives from the Chinese word ‘kochi’, given to the city by its next ruler, Kublai Khan. Cochin however first came to prominence during the rule of the Portuguese around 1530. Their empire at the time was one of the world’s most powerful and under their tenure Cochin developed into a very prosperous trading centre. After the Portuguese came Dutch rule in the mid 17th century, followed by the British, and finally. after Indian independence, Indian rule. One can imagine that is because of this mix of cultures that Cochin subsequently became famous for a mixture of its own, Cochin Masala – a mixture of coconut, ground red chilies, dal, coriander, anu turmeric. Cochin Masala is a cooking staple in Southern India and is used to flavor curries of all sorts.

    Lovely delicate flavor yet with enough of strength. Tried a few different brands of chai. Most were weak. Can’t wait for my next cuppa!

  2. Nina

    This tea is brilliant with the spices it contains, all helps towards a healthy gut & immune system. I drink it probably 5-6 times a day its a pleasant warming blend, rich in natural antioxidants.

  3. Elsza Reilly

    This chai are just the right strength and the spices are perfect. I have tried many chai teabags and these are the best. The others are either too weak or too strong.

  4. karen Swan

    This is my absolute favourite tea. Perfectly spiced to make a lovely cuppa.
    Highly recommended trying and the price similar to what I was paying at the supermarket before they discontinued the range. This brand knocks the socks off its competitors

  5. Peter Richardson

    Basically a spiced tea, just add a tiny bit of milk after brewing, and you’re in for a treat.
