This is my only flavoured tea. Once you taste it, you'll understand why I just had to have it. This Masala Chai is nothing short of a perfection, and it's absolutely the best chai I've ever tasted (and I've tasted A LOT!): the well-thought balance between the light black tea and whole bits of classical chai spices (cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger and black pepper) create a partnership that is hard to beat! Amazingly flavourful where the spices don't steal the leading role, it's a match made in heaven. The tea contains only those five spices and the light black tea as a base, no artificial aromas or flavor enhancements. Only the real deal: whole bits that are organically cultivated in the same area as the tea, so they have been grown in the same terroir, what could be better?
Chai is actually a Hindi word for tea, originating from the Chinese word 'cha', meaning tea. Masala means a blend of spices, that's why we use the proper term 'Masala Chai', spiced tea. You can't really talk about tea in India without mentioning Masala Chai, it is their national drink!
