Description

Indian chai is typicaIly made using a rich black tea. usually an Assam. and brewing it in heavy milk with cardamon, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper. The drink produces a warm soothing effect and engenders a wonderfully calming effect on the body. we've taken the soothing aspect of this blend one step further and added a dash of vanilla. This addition of vanilla adds a hint of creaminess to this tea - a fantastic addition. Brew this tea piping hot and add some sugar to help open up the exotic flavour of the spicy blend that makes up this tea. Just try and stop yourself after one cup! 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

Chai is such an integral part of Indian culture that it is virtually impossible to avoid when travelling through any part of the Indian sub-continent. Even when 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 proffering 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 arrives in small clay cups that all customers throw from the train windows when finished!
