I can’t believe that it has been over a year that I’ve tried this tea and been to Washington DC. I brewed this Western Style. I’m feeling lazy today _. This was good. The blend smelled spicy with all the cardamom, ginger, cloves… There was a good amount of black tea mixed in as well. Good tea. I had to add sugar and milk, although this could have done without them. Great tea overall! I love chai! Next time I’ll make this over the stove.

I live near Washington DC and have heard about this place, but never been. What did you think of the locale overall? Is it worth a ride on the smelly metro? ;)

I went to the one on 8th Street since the one on Connecticut was closed when I visited last year. I loved the atmostphere at Teaism on 8th. There was a beautiful indoor pond (I think downstairs or upstairs?) and it was very relaxing. You can order food, which I did. I thought it was very good. I would definitely make a trip out there. They have a variety of teas that they sell as well.

Good to know. I’ll have to make a trek there! :)

While visiting a friend in DC, I had breakfast at Teaism. I thought that I had tasted all manner of Chai from mild to spicy, but I had never had THIS Chai. The fragrant burst of spice from the cardamom makes the initial spice of this chai very assertive, but the flavours throughout are smooth and delicious. I ended up going to the store and buying a bag to make a proper chai at home.

No joke the best chai in town! Drink it by the mug-ful there or buy loose and make your own traditional masala at home. I kind of want to use it as pot-pouring in my sock drawer I love the smell of the spice blend so much.

A very nice blend, and if you happen to be in DC, it’s absolutely worth it to go buy a cup in their shop. Try a salty oatmeal cookie, too, while you’re there. It’s a pretty expensive tea to buy to bring home, and I’d usually rather spend the money on a good Kashmiri Chai loose leaf, but this is still definitely a favorite.

My favorite, so much that I went nuts one week with some I had ordered and broken it down by weight as best can be separated and determined, with some basic rounding. This formula will provide a little over 5 ounces of total Masala Chai, or just under 4 ounces of the Masala Spice Mixture alone.

Masala spices
5 grams of whole Cardamom
45 grams of Cardamom seed
20 grams Ginger, chipped
20 grams Cinnamon, chipped
8 grams Cloves, whole
5 grams Star anise, broken
5 grams Black pepper
2 grams Fennel

TEA (27% total weight)
15 grams Rooibos
25 grams Black Assam

Amounts for one cup
2 tsp of Black Assam + 1 tsp Rooibos = ~ 6 grams
2.3 tsp of whole/chipped spice Masala

Excellent served with sweetened condensed milk or with milk powder and sugar.

Not sure it can be very authentic with Rooibos in it, though.
