Spiced Chai is a zesty blend of a southern Asian drink known as masala chai. Every day in railway stations and busy markets, chai wallahs sell trays of spiced tea in small clay cups. Our version mixes black tea with the intense flavours of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom and black pepper, which creates a wealth of exotic aromas.
Great Taste Awards judges love it too - "The tea has the right balance and good defined flavours which work well together".

Brew a Perfect Cup
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teabag per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
These teabags produce a very strong tasting chai - which is a plus point. All chai blends are unique - unfortunately I wasn't overly fussed on this one. If you like your chai to tastes most strongly of cloves then this is the chai for you. I much prefer Whittards cinnamon chai infusion - despite it containing no tea leaves :)
The scent when you open the packet is wonderful. I like it not too strong (don't leave the bag in too long) with just a little milk and no sugar. Delicious.
Chai tea should be deep, spicy and taste ful to be mixed with equal amount of milk and a lot of sugar, this sort is just perfect for the real thing, and in a handy teabag as well!
After a recent trip to Nepal (where I lived on the local tea) this is the closest, best tasting Chai I've found thats available in a bag. Wonderful!
great smell and very sweet flavour!!
