Description

Masala Chai - China Indian Spicy Tea is the loose leaf version of our famous Bombay Tea Bags. It is a type of Black Tea originating from India, one that includes a variety of flavoursome herbs and spices. Every sip of this delectable infusion boasts bold, spicy notes and malty undertones. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring not only quality but also consistency. 

With ingredients such as Assam BOP, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and ginger, Masala Chai also comes with health benefits. Indian Black Tea alone contains a wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants capable of combating free radicals in the body. Meanwhile, the other ingredients found within it can likewise support health and wellbeing in a plethora of ways. 

Providing one eats well and exercises plenty, Masala Chai can improve the immune system, aid digestion and promote weight loss. It can also, among other qualities, support the heart and reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Nevertheless, most choose this beverage for its exceptional taste, which lingers on the palate long after you’ve drained your cup.

About Chai Tea

Chai Tea is a relatively new creation from the Indian subcontinent. Although people have used ingredients such as cardamom and ginger for millennia, Indian Black Tea only came into existence during the 19th century.

It was a Scottish explorer named Robert Bruce who discovered Tea leaves growing in Assam, India. This took place following a period where several attempts to grow Chinese Tea had failed.

Not long after Robert Bruce’s incredible findings, a flourishing Indian Tea industry emerged. By the early 20th century, Indian Black Tea had been combined with spices to create an entirely new infusion - Chai. Now, of course, Chai Tea is one of the most popular beverages in India. It is also gaining an excellent reputation around the rest of the world, with our Masala Chai showcasing its finest qualities.

  1. Один из лучших масала, которые предлагает магазин.
    Этот вид - более "чайный", непал-малсала более пряный. Оба очень вкусные!
