Strong Spiced Black Tea. If you like to make your own chai lattes or just enjoy the taste of chai by itself, here is a chai for you. This all natural blend of lightly sweetened black tea and earthy spices creates this traditional beverage. (Tea contains sugar crystals.) Chai combines India black tea-lightly sweetened-with spices both sweet and savory, including cinnamon, cadamom and pepper. Add milk for a taste like the traditional beverage of India and Nepal.
