Buy Chai Masala
Chai Masala is an Indian's favourite way of drinking tea. Chai literally means "tea" in Hindi, whereas "Masala" means spices, which makes sense as Indian tea is made using spices. The base spices: Cardamom, Cassia Cinnamon, Ginger and Pepper are always used in all Indian Chai Masalas. Some variants prefer Cloves, Fennel, and even Nutmegs. Our signature recipe tweaks the traditional ingredients into what we believe is the best possible tasting version. The harshness of traditional cassia cinnamon is replaced by our Ceylon Cinnamon - naturally sweet, and very light. We've swapped traditional pepper powder for freshly ground black peppers and some cubeb peppercorns. These are again less sharp and bitter, and instead more earthy, with a nutmeg / allspice like flavour. Overall the chai masala is a wonderful blend of sweet, earthy spices - true to the traditional recipe, with the exotic Regency touch. Chai Masala is also known as Masala Chai, Chai Tea, Chai Spices, Cha Masalo, Cha Masala
Please note: We freshly grind and pack our Chai Masala to order for maximum flavour. This signature recipe is our secret, so we cannot sell this blend in whole form.
Chai Masala Technical Notes
Ingredients: Cardamom Pods(Green), Cinnamon(Ceylon) sticks, Ginger Root, Peppercorns(Cubeb), Peppercorns(Black)
Usage: Brew 1 part Chai Masala in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Add 2 parts of your favourite black tea, boil for a further 1 minute. Stir in milk and sugar to taste, then serve hot.
Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
The chai masala mixture is lovely. I used it to make of course tea mixing with black tea, or just in its own adding only milk. I also used it for baking. Absolutely lovely flavor.
I always freshly grind my own spices each time I make Chai. This is my first time buying from Regency and I couldn’t wait to try as soon I received the package. Good spiciness! I like the Ceylon cinnamon that was used to “tone down” the cinnamon side. But I’m obsessed with Cardamom, and would think that the cardamom side could be stronger for my own preference. I definitely taste the pepper which makes it a good spicy chai. I have tried chai masala from other places and I wasn't so satisfied. So I had to grind my own spices every time, but now this package saves me a lot of work.
For the next batch I order, I wonder if could I request for stronger Green Cardamom?
Great blend of spices, I just add one teabag, a bit of milk and sugar to make the perfect cup of chai:)
Simply add 1 tsp to a cup of tea, it's so delicious!
I am completely fulfilled and in love with the masala chai!
It is very hard to find a perfect place to get chai in HK. Places that have chai or either too blend or out from a tea bag, which is disappointing.
So, I am really happy to have came across Regency Spices :) Definitely getting it again!
I must say, though, I did struggle a bit with the prepping and figured I should have used a nut milk bag (or cheese bag) to hold everything!
