MASALA CHAI TIN
Ask The Tea Centre what our favourite tautology is and we will tell you “chai tea”. This is a funny phrase as chai means tea in Hindi (so “chai tea” means “tea tea”) and masala translates to ‘spice’, which refers to the delicious blend of petals and spices that have been used to make chai masala for the past 5000–9000 years. Similarly, our blend does not mess with tradition! This masala chai tin contains the much-loved balance of black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and rose petals that tastes perfect on its own or when brewed as a traditional stovetop chai. If you’re looking for chai blends that offer a unique twist, head over to our contemporary range here.
Masala blends were originally divined for Ayuvedic purposes back in Ancient India and Siam (modern-day Thailand). While chai is mostly enjoyed for recreational purposes, the spices in our blend are also high in antioxidants and can be sipped as a preventative measure against the common cold. Given there is nothing better than cosying up with a warm mug of stovetop chai during the colder months, this chai is a go-to favourite in the wintertime. You can up the comfort factor of this spicy blend even more by adding a dash of honey into the mix!
This indulgent black tea blend also makes for the perfect gift. A number of our best-selling gift sets include this chai, which you can explore here. Our chai also comes conveniently packaged as teabags and loose-leaf refills.
