In India, and most other parts of the world, what we know as chai is called "Masala Chai." In all its forms, Chai has been said to be the world's most enjoyed beverage. Here in North America, we are just discovering what the ancients already knew: this stuff is great!
Tradition and modern science both show the spices used in chai are good digestive tonics. These spices usually include, depending on the blend, cardamom, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger, pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, and others.
Usually tea is the first ingredient in chai because it’s less expensive than spices. With this Double Chai blend, you get to try chai spices on their own, in a spicy, savory, and enjoyable mixture. Enjoy!
A brief history of Chai: The legend of Chai originates in India (perhaps Siam) over 5000 years ago where the royal family or their court created the first chai recipes and guarded them as national treasures.
Brewing required boiling sweet and savory spices in milk and water, then adding black tea, steeping, and straining the mixture. Honey was frequently added to counter the intense spiciness and bitterness.
Our teabags put an end to this labour intensive process. We have a chai blend for every taste, from mild to very spicy, with and without caffeine.
Here's how we brew Chai:
- Put teabags in a cup or pot (Use one teabag per cup of chai to be made)
- Pour some just-boiled water over the teabags and steep 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove the teabags.
- We like our chai straight, but many experiment by adding milk (soy or dairy) and honey or other sweeteners.
- Most important: relax and enjoy!
