A traditional Indian spiced tea recipe with a warm and robust character. The full flavor notes of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and clove hold up to milk and honey, the traditional way to take this tea.

  • This is, hands down, my favorite chai. It is a rich, bracing cup to get my day going. I steep it in water instead of milk and then pour in a lot of heated milk afterwards and a bit of Stevia for sweetness. Delicious and very strong!
  • Great alone!

  • I wanted to give some real Chai a try since I have never liked those from stores. And wow! I loved it! And, surprisingly, I loved it more by itself. Just such a great, spiced tea. Perfect for this cold autumn!
  • Best Traditional Chai!

  • This is, hands down, the best traditional chai tea I have found. It will continue to be a staple in my tea pantry, and is what I reach for time and time again for that first morning cup. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic, basic, chai tea.

  • This isn't the crappy, commercial chai garbage that comes in a premixed box. The spices and the flavor are perfectly balanced. Even my children (with their sensitive tastes) love this tea. More for sure.

  • Three months ago I accidentally ordered two packets (computer glitch) but have already used up the first packet. I have it with whole milk and about a quarter teaspoon of sugar. With a late spring this year it has been a comfort.

  • I have to confess, I'm not a Chai fan - too sweet, don't like milk, etc. My son sent me some for Christmas and I love this! I steeped it strong and added no sweetener, no milk. Warm, spicy, authentic, flavors, not "pumpkin spice". A really clean, refreshing aftertaste. The cardamom really elevates the profile. So glad to have found this! Try it!
  • Excellent Tea

  • A very flavorful tea. I steep it for about 5 minutes or so. Instead of adding sugar or honey I keep a can of sweetend condensed milk on hand and use that. This is much better than paying four or five dollars at the local Starbucks or coffee house for.

  • This is the best tasting chai I've ever had. I particularly like the fact that it does not have black pepper in it! It tastes quite a bit like my gingerbread.

  • Love all the flavor notes! Hopefully this will be back in stock soon. Do you send emails that would let me know it is in stock?
