Father in law brought this back from India Last week. He was looking for real masala but the areas of town where the loose leaf was at was a really bad part of town so he brought this back. It comes in tea bags with dust and fannings which I am not thrilled, and if brewed by itself is strong and bitter.

To fix this I do a traditional half milk and half water brew and sugar. It is fairly nice if you are in a pinch for a cup of masala but it is not my ideal tea. It has a bit of cinnamon but the predominate flavors are cardamon and anise.

In conclusion, if you are in india and cant seem to find a chai wallah then pick this up and brew with milk and sugar and it will do.
