A little more about this tea ...
We take the quality and flavour of our teas very seriously but none more so than our masala chai tea. In 2016 we started working with an organic tea garden in Sri Lanka and this is where the tea and spices for this blend are grown. We are really thrilled to offer you this beautiful option which we consider is one of the best available. Not only is it delicious and warming it also offers a double dose of antioxidants in the form of tea and spices.
Three spices that traditionally appear in a masala chai blend are cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. These spices have been recognised in Chinese and Indian natural medicine for centuries. An ancient tradition was to stir your cup of tea with a cinnamon stick so it could impart its warming, relaxing goodness.
Use our blend tea as a base for traditional boiled milk style chai (see below) or brew in the manner of a normal cup of tea adding milk and sweetener if required.
Traditional Boiled Milk Style (2 serves):
1. Combine 1.50 to 2 dessertspoons of Stir Masala Chai, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of water in a saucepan (or use all milk for a very rich and nourishing drink). Stir and bring to the boil.
2. Reduce heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes (we prefer closer to 5 minutes). Remove from the heat, stir in sugar or honey to your liking and strain into a bowl.
3. Whisk to a froth (if desired) and pour into cups. Enjoy.
