From Strand Tea Company

In our opinion this is the best Black Tea (Masala) Chai in the US. India Wedding Chai is made from Premium finely cut organic Assam Black Tea Base with an authentic (Masala) Organic Spice Blend of Cardamom, Ginger, Black Peppercorns, Cinnamon, Cloves, and Fennel. The Chai Blend is simmered for a few minutes, then you add the milk (or milk substitute) and sweetening to your taste. We’ve been going to India since 1977 and this is the closest thing to real Indian Street Chai. For all you Chai lovers, it is fragrant, warming, and delicious.

Ingredients: Assam black tea, cardamom, ginger, black peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves, fennel

Thanks to Mastress Alita for this tea! The main flavor is cardamom – like so many chais I’ve tried recently. It’s a bit astringent, and I was becoming bored with all the cardamom. Today’s cup, I brewed with milk (I’m sorry Mastress for ignoring your detailed brewing instructions all the rest of the steeps – I should have listened to you!) The milk magically transforms it into the kind of chai you’d order at a restaurant. It’s tasty with just a touch of spiciness. Yum.

Summer Vacation! I failed to get to this tea during my April “Chai to Stay Dry” theme, which is a real shame, so I’m finally reviewing it now. It’s a traditional Indian chai blend, so I say it counts while I’m wrapping up my look at Indian teas (and I only have one more to go before I move onto some Chinese teas!)

What can I say, this is probably my favorite chai blend when I want a chai that is traditional tasting masala chai that I want to drink with milk. It has a very strong spicy flavor (so there is no way I could drink a chai like this plain, myself), but the taste holds up great when taken as a latte. I wouldn’t say any spice holds a particular dominance like I have experienced with other chais; I can make out notes of all the individual spices, and they blend really nicely. I really enjoy creating different flavor profiles by using different milks, and have found it tastes great with vanilla almond milk, chocolate almond milk, and coconut milk. When it isn’t so hot out I will simmer the tea and milk and strain it, but in this heat I just make a quick latte by using double leaf and using about 1/4 warm milk and 3/4 tea to my large mug.

All in all, a really solid chai blend and the one that will stay in my cupboard as my run-of-the-mill masala.
