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.
