The full flavour notes of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves and aniseed give this tea a robust and warming character. Chai tea is traditionally served with milk and honey to make an indulgent drink, although it can still be enjoyed with just water, for those who prefer their tea a little lighter.
Our Chai Tea’s base uses black tea leaves, which are then mixed with spices to deliver a flavour-packed brew with numerous health benefits.

“A unique combination of specially chosen spices to create this wonderful tea called Chai. This originates from India. Chai is usually taken with milk. Chai is what I have every morning. All of my spices are created at home, just like my mother used to make!”
About Chai Tea
Chai tea dates back thousands of years and was originally enjoyed by millions in India. Now masala chai is popular all over the world.
For those of you used to more traditional teas, such as English Breakfast or Earl Grey, chai tea might feel like a pleasant and radical change. It is a spiced, sweetened black that delivers a warming flavour. Tea leaves are mixed with spices such as cinnamon and cloves and the Chai itself, once brewed, is often mixed with milk (either dairy or plant-based) and honey to make an indulgent drink.
Chai tea, owing to its mix of tea leaves and variety of spices, is said to have many health benefits. As well as ginger and cinnamon, we have included spices such as cloves, cardamom and aniseed to help improve both flavour and the healthy properties of our chai.
