Description

Nepal Masala Chai Tea comes from the Ilam District of Nepal. Created by the Giri family of the Shree Antu region, it is a blend of Black Tea with Cinnamon, Lemongrass, Ginger Root and Cardamom. When brewed, it offers a bold and flavoursome kick best described as spicy yet sweet.

Treat yourself to its finer qualities at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, where everything is packed fresh to order.

About Masala Tea from Nepal

The cultivation of Nepal Tea took place when the Chinese government gifted plant saplings to then-Prime Minister Jung Bahadur Rana in 1863. The first Ilam Tea factory opened in 1868, followed by numerous others that made a wide variety of Tea types.

Our Nepal Chai Tea is one such type. Similar to Indian Masala Chai, it combines Black Tea leaves with herbs and spices native to the area. 

The Ingredients in Nepal Masala Tea

There are several noteworthy ingredients found in Nepal Masala Chai Tea. Cinnamon is a spice from trees in the Cinnamomum genus of the Lauraceae family. It is a common component in countless culinary dishes around the world, as well as being a delicious standalone Herbal Tea.

Historically, widespread trade in the spice began hundreds of years ago through travelling Arab merchants. 

Meanwhile, Cardamom Tea derives from seeds of plants in the Elettaria and Amomum genera of the Zingiberaceae (Ginger) family. It is, like Cinnamon, a long adored addition to food and drink and a wholesome beverage unto itself.

In the same family, of course, is Ginger Tea. This famously zesty and zingy delight plays a considerable role in the infusion you’ve chosen here. 

How to Make Nepal Masala Chai Tea

  1. Put about five grams of Tea into a Filter or Infuser.

  2. Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup of your choice.

  3. Pour in freshly boiled water at temperatures of 100°C.

  4. Allow it to infuse for 3-5 minutes for the finest flavour. 

How to Serve: Milk, sugar, honey or lemon - the choice is yours. Alternatively, serve black. 

Tasting Notes: Imparts a full-bodied flavour with citrusy, herbaceous and spicy notes throughout. 

Benefits of Nepal Chai Tea

According to Ayurveda, a holistic healing practice that dates back millennia, Chai Tea in its many forms can improve life in small yet significant ways. Much of the same is true according to modern science.

It contains vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants that slow oxidative stress and, as a result, reduce the risk of developing a multitude of chronic conditions. What could be better than that? 

It turns out that there’s more. One 2009 study demonstrated that Cardamom could lower blood pressure. Another 2009 study showcased Cinnamon’s capacity to prevent cognitive decline.

Then there is a 2021 study that established Ginger Root’s anti-inflammatory effects on menstrual cramps. And let’s not forget Black Tea, which has energy-boosting caffeine in its leaves to start your day the right way.

  1. Disappointed when the tea arrived. It is very finely ground, unlike the advertising which shows leaves rather than powder. The taste is fine, but I like to use a glass teapot with built in infuser and the tea is so fine it blocks the holes in the infuser and makes it difficult to clean.

  8. It took quite a lot to get much flavour . Chai being a highly flavoured brew normally. I was a bit surprised . It is still nice. Perhaps if the spices were smaller & a little more tea in the mix . It would be more tasty. As it is , it's quite uneconomical to drink!
