  • Chai is steeped in a rich history. The name “chai” is actually the Hindi word for “tea”, which was derived from “cha”, the Chinese word for “tea”. In this case, the Hindi term chai means a mix of spices steeped into a tea-like beverage. Recipes for chai vary across continents, cultures, towns and families. The traditional ingredients of a spiced tea blend usually include black tea mixed with strong spices. The spiced tea mixture is typically brewed strong with milk and sweetened with sugar or honey. However, the milky sweet tea treat we order in coffee and tea shops today has very little in common with the origins of Indian chai. Pair our Assam Chai Base black tea with our hand blended Authentic Chai Masala and you will experience the truly incredible flavors of real Indian street chai.
