Chai is definitely a cup of wellness. Black tea is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and the spices in chai help with digestion, reduce inflammation, regulate blood glucose, heart, brain and oral health
The mighty Chaiwala Tiger calls India its homeground, with almost 70% of the world population contained within its dense forests. Historically hunted for its prized skin, its population is steadily increasing after poaching was curbed.
I like the tea, price compared to product amount not so much though.
I love the Masala Chai and Cleansing Golden Latte! They're perfect for any time of the day, and I will certainly be getting more teas once I finish these! Can't recommend Herbs & Kettles enough.
Big fan of Herbs and Kettles Chai. Very tasty and not too sweet.
The very best chai I have had
Masala chai is a blend of black crush, tear and curl (CTC) tea and spices.
Although rumor has it that the origins of chai can be traced back 5000-9000 years ago to an Indian king who ordered a traditional healing beverage to be made using Ayurveda herbs and spices, chai was not a beverage popularly consumed in India until it was colonized by the British and the East Indian Company started to manufacture and trade in tea.
In addition to black CTC tea other spices include ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, star anise, fennel, etc. Every household and state in India has their own special recipe.
Make sure the chai blend has a good quality CTC, which depends on the grade and also is single origin, directly sourced and fresh. Ensure that the ingredients are natural and not artificial flavoring. Our masala chai has real ginger, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper. As compared to other brands, our masala chai is rich in ginger and cardamom and has lower quantities of cinnamon ensuring a beautiful zesty and aromatic blend.
Masla Chai is traditionally made over a stove top. If you wish to steep your chai, take 2-3 teaspoons (4-6g) of our masala chai blend and insert it in a disposable tea bag or tea infuser and place it in 4-6 fl-oz of boiling water in a tea cup. Steep for 4-5 minutes and remove the chai masala tea bag or infuser. Add a dash of milk and sugar if desired. If you are looking for chai tea bags, take a look at our Blue Chai which has butterfly blue pea flowers, chai spices and is caffeine-free.
