Details

Chai is so prevalent in India and Sri Lanka that it could be called the 'National drink'. It is very common to see the 'tea wadis' serving their chai to the walk-by street traffic. In North America we have the coffee carts; in the sub continent and Sri Lanka you have the 'wadis'. Paint the following picture in your mind: the tea wadis cart has that 'well used' look (read - bashed, dented), quite often with a charcoal fire going keeping the water boiling so steam and smoke are rising, an old evaporated milk can full of sugar, another bashed and dented can with the masala chai spices, an eclectic collection of semi -clean mugs and glasses and a wizened chai expert deftly pouring back and forth from great heights, tea with spices and milk, combining the two ingredients.

Once combined it is normal to add a fantastic amount of sugar for that real chai experience. Chai is brewed with milk and a mixture of spices. Each recipe can be different depending upon the spices used. Indian spiced chai is often referred to as Masala Chai. The word 'chai' literally means tea (different languages use various forms of this word - for example Portuguese call it 'cha', Hindus call it chai, and in Chinese the sound of the symbol for tea sounds very much like cha.) and 'masala' is the word for the mixture of the various spices - hence Masala Chai.

Often a lower quality tea is used to make 'chai' as it is thought the spices will cover-up any deficiencies in the tea. We do not believe this and prefer to make our dry tea chai mix from real Indian spices and high-grown Ceylon tea. The quality of the tea elevates this chai to a new level.

[Turn our bag of Chai upside down a few times. The reason is that during transit the spices can settle at the bottom of the bag]

Nicely SpicyReview by Elf

I really like this tea; it's slightly chocolate-y and slightly spicy, with a black tea base that really holds up. Another to add to my regular rotation. (Posted on 1/30/2018)

A very nice chocolate chai tea that takes the best of chocolate and chai and expertly blends them together so that the flavors work together and neither over power the other. It agree with the other reviewers that it is not as spicy as a straight chai, but I find that it is the right blend of sweet/spice that make this tea work! (Posted on 7/18/2016)

I like chai spices, chocolate, and tea, so trying this was a given. I really enjoy the subtle tastes that come out under the chai, and I have this one every day! (Posted on 5/16/2016)
go-to winter teaReview by Lauren
As someone who isn't all too crazy about chai teas, I really enjoyed the subtle spice. There was just enough for it to not be too overpowering. I highly recommend mixing a small amount of rock sugar and milk because it really brings out the flavor. It definitely made me think of winter, so I can see myself turning to this tea during the colder months. (Posted on 6/27/2014)
NiceReview by Tasha
I found this chai to be a little more subtle in the spice department. I think if it were too spicy it would drown out the creamy belgian chocolate and caramel that rounds it out. Overall I find it a warming and comforting tea. (Posted on 5/16/2014)
