From The Tea Table

Chai is brewed with milk and a mixture of spices. Each recipe can be different depending upon the spices used. Indian spiced chai is often referred to as Masala Chai. The word “chai” literally means “tea.” Different languages use various forms of this word – for example Portuguese call it “cha,” Hindus call it “chai,” and in Chinese the sound of the symbol for tea sounds very much like “cha.” “Masala” is the word for the mixture of the various spices – hence Masala Chai.

Our new Masala Chai has a more complex, traditional Masala flavor and is somewhat less peppery than the old version and is considerably less expensive. Black tea flavored with ginger root, cinnamon, green cardamom, ginger and vanilla flavor. Use one teaspoon per cut of fresh boiling water and steep for 3-5 minutes.

I made a pot of this tea in my 2-cup teapot, and the smells while steeping are so nice! It smells like a very strong chai, which I love, so I’m anxious to give it a go. This is a good one! It’s full-bodied, no bitterness steeped at 4 minutes, and with a bit of sugar and milk, it’s the perfect comfort tea! Very spicy, not much heat though, and absolutely yummy. I’d recommend a smaller amount of milk than you normally put in your chais though, as it seemed to weaken the tea a good bit.

This tastes & smells exactly like another chai I’ve had but cannot remember which! My best guess is Teavana’s Masala Chai, which appears to have been discontinued. I know I first tried it in December 2009 and reordered once. It may have bit the dust when their Taj Masala Chai was introduced. Anyway, I’d be willing to bet it’s the same exact blend.

The ginger and cardamom are the prominent flavors in this. It’s refreshing to try a chai that isn’t laced with enough cinnamon to clear your sinuses. It does taste a tiiiiny bit “peppery” despite lacking actual pepper. Brewed extra strong it’s got quite a kick and really stands up to adding milk.

My first cup was a little dissapointing. I followed the directions and its smelled very nice while steeping, but when tasting it was week and flat. So for my second cup I increased but the amount of tea I use by 50% and added a minute to the time. Much better! The flavor held up well to a little milk and honey.

Thanks to IrishBreakfastLass for this one! I love chai so I am really trying to try all companies versions so I can find my favorite. This one is pretty good. It is a little lacking in spice for me. I prefer a more spicy chai. But it is good. The black tea used for the base is quite good. But I don’t like that I can taste the black tea more than the chai spices. But otherwise its pretty tasty.

To me, this tea is a perfect substitute to coffee in the morning. I brew enough for a 12 oz. travel mug before setting off to start my day. The spice and creamy bitterness leaves a tingle in my mouth and a spring in my step! I love this tea with brown sugar and vanilla almond milk in lieu of creme.
