Real Chai is almost impossible to find here in the U.S. If you don’t believe us take someone from India to any upscale coffee chain and order a Chai. We apologize in advance if you actually do this because they will not be happy. Real chai should use a strong black tea and real, fresh spices such as cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and peppercorns. It should never, ever use any type of “natural flavorings” or any other shortcuts you would find in those premade boxes. Using the real stuff gives you a drink that is as delicious as you can find anywhere in India. And by everywhere I mean every single train station, bus station, café, street corner, and household. Once you taste a real chai you will understand why.

One of the keys to a good Masala Chai is to have a strong tea base. That is why we chose a small cut leaf from the Doomni Farm in the Baksa District of Assam, India. This particular Assam is grown along the Brahmaputra River and has a pronounced, rich, malty body with notes of tobacco and caraway seeds. We then add whole Indian cardamom seeds, Sri Lankan cloves, Vietnamese peppercorn, Sri Lankan cinnamon, and Chinese ginger.
