Chai. An integral part of Indian culture and virtually impossible to avoid when traveling through any part of the Indian sub-continent. Indian Chai is typically made using a rich black tea, usually an Assam, and brewing it in heavy milk and cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pepper. The drink produces a warm soothing effect and calming effect on the body. We've taken the soothing aspect of this blend one step further and added vanilla. It adds a rare hint of creaminess to this classic tea. Brew this tea piping hot and add some sugar to help open up the exotic flavor of the blend that makes up this tea.
Important: Turn your bag of Chai upside down a few times. The powdered spices can settle to the bottom during transit
