Black Chai - loose leaf tea
pouch of 250g
Black tea with a bouquet of oriental spices – a piquant liaison that will linger in the memory. Black chai is even more special with the addition of a little milk.
This traditional Indian beverage is based on strong black teas from Ceylon and Assam. Cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pepper are the other main ingredients of this blend, which will take you on a scintillating journey of the Indian subcontinent. Chai has its roots deep in Indian culture and its beguiling fragrance will accompany you with every step. Every family in the country has its own recipe for making it.
In Ayurvedic medicine, the warming spices and cooling black tea form an evenly balanced symbiosis.
In India, chai, or massala chai, is taken with plenty of milk and sugar, and is drunk everywhere at any time of day.
Good to know...
A chai should be brewed with water at a temperature of 95–98°C (leave the water in the kettle for a short time until it has stopped boiling).
