Masala Chai Loose Leaf Tea - 50g
Our Masala chai was developed from a combination of traditional chai recipes, containing eight freshly ground and fragrant spices that combine to create a deliciously spicy and sweet tea.
Originating in India, chai was consumed as an ancient Ayurveda herbal medicine and consisted of just milk and spices. It wasn't until the arrival of the British in the early 1820's that black tea was added to the mix.
This tea is a sentimental favourite here at Collombatti Naturals as it was the very first product we developed, it was the tea that started it all!
The base of our Masala chai is a single-blend black tea, grown on a plantation in tropical far north Queensland. Here it has been harvested and packed on the property by the same family since 1978.
- Grown without the use of pesticides, this tea contains no pesticide residue.
- Low in tannin, this tea can be brewed for a long time without turning bitter.
- Low in caffeine, enjoy your chai at any time of the day.
How to brew your Masala Chai:
For a quick cuppa: Add one heaped teaspoon per serve to your tea pot or strainer. Pour over freshly boiled water and allow to steep for 2-3 minutes.
Strain and serve with milk and sweetener if desired. A good, raw honey works particularly well with chai.
Traditional method: In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of your preferred milk (cow, soy, almond, coconut etc) almost to the boil. Stir in one heaped teaspoon of chai and reduce heat to a low simmer. Brew for 2-3 minutes, strain a serve.
