Our Masala chai was developed from a combination of traditional chai recipes.
It contains eight freshly ground spices that combine to create a deliciously spicy and sweet Masala chai.
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 1820s that black tea was added to the mix, and it's this version that is now enjoyed worldwide.
