Masala chai literally translates to spiced tea. There are as many different recipes as people making it. We blend this tea with a classic recipe so that it is spicy and full bodied.

Extra Info:

Chai is such an integral part of Indian culture that it is virtually impossible to avoid when traveling 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 customers throw from the train windows when finished! Indian chai is typically made using a rich black tea, usually an Assam, and brewing it in heavy milk with cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper. The drink produces a warm soothing effect and engenders a wonderfully calming effect on the body. Brew this tea piping hot and scoop in some sugar to help open up the exotic flavor of this spicy blend. Just try and stop after one cup!

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 6 minutes.

Ingredients:

Organic black tea, Organic ginger root, Organic cinnamon, Organic cardamom, Organic clove, and Organic black pepper,

Origin:

Sri Lanka: Cloves, Black Tea. India: Malabar Pepper. Guatemala: Cardamom. Indonesia: Cinnamon. China: Ginger.

If you like black teas, this is the winner! It's my favourite by far. Very smooth, yet rich at the same time. I'm recommend you all to get this one!

I generally do not care for Chai. It tends to be far over spiced and with far too much clove. This Chai, however, is well balanced and I must admit to loving the hint of black pepper. I also enjoyed the velvety reddish colour of the tea.

This is the best chai I've ever had. Stumbled upon it when I was in Albuquerque and had to order more when I got home to California.

I ordered this tea fully expecting it to be flavorful and transcendental, as a truly good chai should be. Based on my other orders from NM Tea, I had no doubt that I was in for a treat. Item arrived extremely fast. I must tell you that not only was I delighted by this chai, but I would have to agree with the other review in saying that this is without a doubt the best chai I've ever had. It set the tone for an entire evening of music and enchanting conversation.

While nothing can beat blending your own chai, this is the best pre made chai I have found. I still doctor it up a bit, but it's also pretty enjoyable as is.

I have tried many different chais, and I always come back to this one. I can't write a flowery review other than to say that the quality and service at NM Tea is the best. Thank you,David, for the free shipping.

We moved to Canada from ABQ, and decided to get our teas from NM company. We love the service and atmosphere at NMTea Company. Can't wait to go back to NM and get some tea in person.
