A Twist on the Classic Masala Chai
The national drink of India. This is our interpretation of the quintessential masala chai served across the subcontinent by the chai wallah and his ritual of long pouring the sweet, hot, milky tea into glasses.
We have taken the traditional base of earthy Assam black tea and blended the leaves with an aromatic mixture of spices to give the masala a rich complexity. Our chai comprises of cardamom, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper and a sprinkling of spiritual dried marigolds to evoke the spirit of the goddess Parvati from the temple city of Madurai in Southern India.
INGREDIENTS: Assam tea, cardamom, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, marigolds.
SUGGESTIONS FOR SERVING
- Add 1 teaspoon to water for 2 cups of tea
- Add milk and bring to a boil
- Add honey or brown sugar to taste
We recommend pairing Madurai Masala Blend with delicate butter cookies.
