Malabar Chai


Black tea rich with Malabar coast spices and a touch of creamy Madagascar vanilla.



Chai is such an integral part of Indian culture that it is virtually impossible to avoid when traveling there.  Even when fresh cold drinking water cannot be found, you will inevitably encounter a chai-wallah, or chai seller, yelling out, “chayee! chayee!”
While riding the rails in India, the call of the chai wallah can be heard at every stop proffering their delicious hot drink – even in the middle of the night, waking up passengers to sell chai.  The chai arrives in small clay cups that customers throw from the train windows when finished!
The drink is warm and soothing and creates a wonderfully calming effect on the body.
This brew benefits from milk and some sugar to help open up the exotic flavours of the spices.  One cup is rarely enough!
Tea(s) From: India / Sri Lanka

Hot tea brewing method:  Place 1 rounded teaspoon of tea per cup in an infuser, teiere or teapot, pour on boiling water.  Cover and let steep for 3-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Add milk and sugar to taste.
Traditionally Chai will be made strong and sweet with heavy milk – for true „chayee chayee‟ steep at least 7 minutes, put 2 teaspoons of sugar in the cup and add milk (about 20%) of the cup‟s volume.
