Nothing but Tea Masala Chai – 1kg Pouch, Lacking a bit of body

An absolutely fantastic cup of chai. Had chai before but this blend is lovely will be ordering more soon better than hot chocolate great at night or when your cold.

Refreshing, stimulating, aromatic and the ingredients have lots of health benefits.

Not a bad taste, but way too mild for a masala chai. . I expected a lot more from this, as it is not your usual tea-bag variety chai, but following the recommendation (1 hpd tsp, 3 min brewing) it came out less spicy than even some of the tea-bag chais that i’ve tried (e. So if you are after the nice spicy flavor of masala chai, this is not it, you’d have to at least add some stuff on your own (i’ll try adding more ginger, cinnamon and pepper for the next cup). If you haven’t tried a good masala chai you will probably like this a lot, as it is already a great improvement over tea, and you will also like if (for some strange reason :d) you don’t like your chai to be a bit more spicy. In the latter case, you might also want to try the wagh bakri teabags since they are in a similar level of spiciness, at least equally rich taste, and a better deal at 100 tea bags for the same price. Anyway, i will also try to brew longer and with more quantity, but so far it hasn’t won me over.

Excellent tasting good quality tea, just as described by seller. Very happy with my purchase, would definitely buy again.

Masala Chai – 1kg Pouch : It’s a good spice blend, but i find it lacking a bit in body (not enough ‘tea’ flavour). I’ve solved this by brewing a two-to-one with some leaf yorkshire gold. I’m aware that at least two sets of people will probably consider this heresy, but i like it. I tried brewing longer to increase body but found it rapidly got bitter and sharp (i think the cinnamon starts to overwhelm the other flavours). Still one of the better blends i’ve found.

    Just brewed my first pot there and had to write this review halfway through my cup. Soft and palatable and full of awesome autumn flavour.

      1. One thing i miss from home is masala tea, wasn’t too impressed by the tea bags that you can buy. This stuff is great 1 cup of water 1 cup of milk 3 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of this and a tea bag let it boil and you have something special.

    This seems like the real deal . The spiced flavours – recognisably real bits/pieces as opposed to powders – aren’t synthetic, overpowering or harsh, but add a mellow warmth and fragrance to a strong, good-quality black tea. I use two teaspoons, boiled up with a mugs-worth of water for 5 mins. I don’t add milk while this is going on – which i’ve seen advised in making massala chai – as i find the resulting brew just too hot to drink right away, so a splash afterwards, plus some sugar.

      1. Delicious, and with chunks of the real stuff, not “powders” or “flavourings”. 5 stars, totally recommended.

    A lot are a bit overwhelming, but this one is really nice. Steeps well with great taste. I use a muslin twist to steep.
