In the West, chai tends to pop up in all sorts of unlikely places (looking at you, chai lattes), but in India, chai is more than just the word for ‘tea’, it’s a way of life.
We’re not overstating the point when we say that every facet of Indian society, from beautiful Bollywood starlets to the average Joe in the streets, is completely steeped in the milky sweet spice blend known as ‘chai’. For centuries, morning, noon and night, on trains, in cafes and homes, the country has been constantly enjoying this wonderfully enlivening beverage. For our blend, we’ve opted for a classically balanced combination of chai tea spices —ginger, cardamom, black pepper, cloves and cinnamon— that give rise to that indomitable chai flavor.
