This traditional Indian Chai is named for the city that is the birthplace of chai. Cochin Masala includes Ceylon black tea, ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, and black pepper. When brewed this full body tea produces a spicy aromatic flavor. Superb with milk and sugar.

Hello….I am new to Steepster and plan on posting more reviws. I love Masala Chai; although, I haven’t tried this one in particular. After many years of drinking quite a few M. Chai teas, I had one at my sisters quite a few years ago.Needless to say, it had Black Pepper in it. I purchased some Chai from Enjoying Tea with Black Pepper, and I loved it. I was going to have more of it and review it, but I CAN’T FIND IT!!! I have so many teas, it does happen from time to time. I need to inventory my teas….seriously. Anyway, black pepper does give it the extra kick I like.

I startrd following you, because I’m trying to follow people who review lots of teas, not just occasionally. I’ll try to post a new review every couple of days. I enjoy your reviews, and your passion for tea. Steep on Bliss. :)

Thanks so much for your notes – so sorry it has taken this long for me to write back – I have been having problems with Steepster, but, I review teas everyday at least somewhere! LOL – I seriously LOVE steepster…I don’t want to NOT log in everyday but I’m having so many problems with SLOW pages loading, etc…however, if you follow the Sororitea Sisters Blog – we would LOVE that…we have between 2 and 5 reviews EVERY DAY over there! We are also on Facebook! :) Thanks again!

Hey, I found my Chai Tea today, and will post a review later tonight or tomorrow. I’ve been reviewing teas hot and Iced, then averaging their scores. I’ve never iced Chai tea, but I’m hoping this will be good. My pages have been loading slow the last couple of days too….it can be very frustrating!

Hey, I bookmarked Sororitea Sisters a few months back, and check it every now and then, but I didn’t know you reviewed there until I startrd following you here on Steepster! I’ll follow the reviews more closely there. :)

I keep telling myself I am going to make this over the stove-top, but I haven’t been able to! I have been so busy with work. Anyway, I had this before going to work yesterday. :) Delicious! I love the ginger bits in here.

Definitely stronger on the tea front and less intense on the spices arena.
it could just be the scoop i pulled from the bag, but having a not so powerful spice flavor is a good thing for me. because i’ve had times when i had a WAY too spicy chai and it kinda scarred me against liking them. i’m just starting to recover i think. mostly thanks to getting to try some good chais like this one!
now that i’ve tried this tea straight i’m REALLY looking forward to brewing it in a hot pan with almond milk and agave Mmmmmm.
Thank you TastyBrew! delish!

I was surprised when I tried this tea – I knew the base was a Ceylon tea, so I expected a somewhat milder tea. But this one is strong! The spices are robust and what I would consider to be spicy-warm … not quite spicy-hot. It is a delicious chai!

Second steeping… not bad! There is a little less bite, but overall this holds up well to reusing the leaves.

Super strong and super DARK when brewed. Like, stain your teapot and teeth dark. This reminds me very much of Tazo’s Chai, which I’ve only had from a teabag and found quite stale tasting. So, this is a similar flavor/aroma, except better. Stronger, more ceylon base peeking through, fresher spices, more pepper. The spice is definitely there, which I love, and is more warming and full-bodied than burn-your-mouth hot. Just a teaspoon per 8oz water is enough to unlock full flavor.
