This is a basic strong black tea, not too bitter. It tastes very “Indian” to me, if I can describe it like that, especially mixed with hot milk. It could easily make an excellent, authentic-tasting masala tea or chai. In the box it is a lightly-smelling long leaf black tea.

“Kalami” is, according to my 5 minute google research, an Indian term for long-leaf or whole-leaf Assam tea. It’s intended for Middle Eastern markets. Kalami is opposed to barooti, which is broken-leaf Assam.

Did I mention it came buy-one-get-one so I now have 800g (nearly two pounds) of it? I’m thinking of giving away a box to a friend. Or just making tons of chai by the pitcher for the next year!

The local store is selling it on clearance, buy one get one free. I could ship it I suppose! But that might be prohibitively expensive from the USA. Also I really don’t know how old this tea is.
