First Chai

Chai tea (or spiced tea) is a traditional Indian black tea, Interestingly, the word “Chai” simply means “tea”. This strong Assam black tea is blended with various herbs and spices. Add milk and enjoy this pleasant alternative to drinking coffee after dinner.

Testing notes

Chai has a particularly bold, spicy taste to it but still retains a hint of sweetness.

Brewing guide

Pour a cup of 100ºc water with one small teaspoon of chai for every 8 oz (220g) and let tea steep for five minutes. Add plenty of milk, sugar or honey according to your preference.
