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

Chai Masala Technical Notes

Ingredients: Cardamom Pods(Green), Cinnamon(Ceylon) sticks, Ginger, Peppercorns(Cubeb), Peppercorns(Black)

Appearance: Fine ground powder. Fine powder may have some small, thin strands of ginger and cardamom that cannot be completely powdered. 

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.

Convenient mix

I’ve been searching for that masala tea taste I had that was served on trains in India and am always disappointed in the mild flavour served in restaurants in HK... but I’m not adventurous enough to buy individual spices in Chungking Mansion. Now I found my best solution here! This recipe doesn’t include cloves so I bought some cloves here as well. I tried it with and without cloves and I really enjoyed having cloves in my tea. I know different families have different recipes so this masala tea mix is a very good and convenient start for people like me to experiment until I find my perfect flavour. Even without cloves, this mix is already good enough. For my personal preference though, I would want to tone down the pepper in this mix - otherwise it’s all good.
