Description

Cochin Masala Chai is an Indian Flavoured Black Tea. Specifically, it is a blend of Assam and Kerala Black Tea (BOP) with South Indian spices such as Ginger, Cinnamon, Cloves and Nutmeg.

The name of it derives from the Indian city of Cochin (also known as Kochi), which was one of the many birthplaces of Chai centuries ago. You can now appreciate its scrumptious history with this infusion.

When brewed, Cochin Masala Chai offers a sweet, spicy kick with malty notes and a full-bodied finish. It is one of the most popular Chai Tea varieties we stock - and with good reason.

The caffeine in it is significant: around 45-mg per 8-oz cup. Then there is the fact it comes with well-documented health benefits. What more could you want from your favourite cuppa?

Facts About Chai Tea

  • A concept of a spicy beverage dates back long before the creation of Chai Tea. The first such type was a “Kadha,” which was (and still is) an Ayurvedic infusion for holistic healing.
  • Colonialism has an unfortunate yet important role in the making of Chai. It was a Scotsman named Robert Bruce who first discovered Assam Tea, which was later forced upon Indians to boost the British Empire’s economy. Locals then added spices to suit their tastes.
  • Today, recipes vary greatly. The northern Indian state of Rajasthan, for instance, makes Chai Tea by adding camel milk. In Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal, it includes buffalo milk. Then there is a brew from the state of Jammu and Kashmir known for its pinkish tint from adding salt.
  • Our Cochin Masala Chai, as its name suggests, owes its origins to the city of the same name, which, in turn, is in the state of Kerala.

When Should I Drink Cochin Masala Chai?

We consider Cochin Masala Chai one of the five-must have Teas for Autumn. This is because it energises and, of course, provides a nice spicy kick when you’re starting to feel a little sluggish.

The colder months can indeed make us feel lethargic, so why not combat it with this wholesome brew? Yet make no mistake: it makes for an excellent choice no matter the time of year!

  2. Not my favourite chai. This is strong on the black tea flavour, more subtle on the massalla flavours, for my palate.
