Flavor Profile: Rich, malty, and spicy, blending especially well with milk and sugar.
The grade of tea commonly used for Chai is known as ‘Cut, Tear and Curl’ (CTC), which is a heavily rolled black tea leaf with very low moisture content. We hand blend our organic CTC with organic spices – ginger, cloves, cardamom and cinnamon. This style of tea is best when boiled. And once the leaf has been optimally boiled, adding milk and sugar provides a delightful golden glow.
Chaiwallahs in India offer Chai in simple kettles and small tapered glasses. Kasoras (chai cups) made of low-fired clay are also famous for imparting a distinct earthiness to the brew. After drinking, people will typically discard the kasoras onto the ground.
