ORIENTAL CHAI — LOOSE LEAF BLACK TEA
Travel the expanse of the Himalayas and cross paths with the Silk Road with just one sip of our delicious Chai Oriental tea. This strongly spiced blend has a sharp flavour and distinctly cinnamon aroma. A bitey brew that’s perfect for lovers of spice to mull over morning, noon, and night. Perfect on its own or with a dash of milk and honey. Given this chai has a full-bodied black tea base, we suggest brewing stovetop-style! Find the recipe here.
Ask our tea-loving experts what their favourite tautology is, and they will say, “chai tea”! Chai is the Hindi word for “tea” and its history in India and Siam (modern-day Thailand) goes back 5000–9000 years. In fact, this chai’s base blend of cloves, anise, cinnamon, and ginger pay homage to the Indian Ayurveda teachings. This particular chai is The Tea Centre’s peppiest, championing pungent and hot flavours that truly activate the palate’s spice receptors.
While this makes Oriental a great winter pick-me-up beverage, some sippers may prefer our milder Masala Chai and East India Earl Grey blends. In fact, Oriental is just one of seven chai blends in The Tea Centre’s repertoire! Explore our full chai collection here.
