From English Tea Store

This tea is based on a premium black tea from Sri Lanka, blended with cardamom, cloves, coriander, cumin seed, sweet cumin seeds, curry leaves, lemon grass, rampe leaves. Best enjoyed with milk, and sugar to taste.

Chai is so prevalent in India and Sri Lanka that it could be called the “National drink”.

The word “chai” literally means tea. Often a lower quality tea is used to make “chai” as it is thought the spices will cover-up any deficiencies in the tea. We do not believe this and prefer to make our dry tea chai mix from real Indian spices and high-grown Ceylon tea. The quality of the tea elevates this chai to a new level.

Turn the bag of Chai upside down a few times. The reason is that during transit the spices can settle at the bottom of the bag.

Tea #30 from Traveling Tea Box C

I almost opted out of trying this one, because chai is not typically my thing. But when I opened the bag and got a sniff, I just had to. I love Indian spices, and this is just amazing.

It smells like curry, and coriander, a little cumin, and cardamom. Just like my apartment when I’m making a curry. Woo!

I brewed this with a teaspoon and a half of leaf to about an ounce of water, then poured over milk and a tiny amount of sugar. The result was exactly what was promised by the smell. Creamy Indian-spiced goodness. I think this would be a chai blend even Fiance would love!

I don’t think this one is going any further. This is too awesome, and too weird to pass up.

Sounds interesting! I love coriander and cumin and curry leaves but can’t quite imagine what they’d be like with tea.

must admit i am tempted…. i love chai, but i can be fiendishly picky about the spice mix. well, no way to tell unless i try it, lol.

I’m REALLY glad that this tea found a good home. I almost didn’t put it into the box because I didn’t think it was good enough. The English tea store was one of my earliest purchases when I started to get into quality tea a year ago, and I don’t like them as well as what I’m buying now. I’m also not into chai and never even tried it!
