Masala Chai is the spiced milk tea of India. An essential ingredient of daily life, cups of hot, milky chai are sipped throughout the day and served by street vendors known as chaiwallahs.

All the warm, spicy-sweet flavors of traditional masala chai are in this organic blend of black tea and cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and clove-spices appreciated in India for their ayurvedic health benefits.

A review of Organic Masala Chai Tea by David Rio

Date: 11/06/2012
Company: David Rio
Tea Name: Organic Masala Chai
Tea Type/ Chai
Region: India
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ fine powder
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: warm caramel
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Note: I wanted a cup of this spice milky tea today since I was thinking for having a cup of cacao, purely. I took one teaspoon of the sweetly fine powder and add this in my mug and pour the very hot water and stir and stirred until the granules were evenly blended /disappearing in my cup.

I sip and sip this tea which is so warm and sweet. All the warm, spicy sweet flavors of traditional masala chai are in this blend that I have fixed for myself: there is the cinnamon, ginger and clove vying for attention with the cardamom seemingly in the background cloying at my taste buds.

This tea is such a delight on this very cold day and I feel somewhat secured while holding this cup of warmth in my hand. I am sorry as I finish this chai and so to passes the moment of having obtained creature comfort/ bliss even, if only for a few moments.

There will have to be another time then, since there is more of this chai in its tin.
