In Indian culture, 'Masala' means 'a blend of spices', and 'chai' simply means 'tea.' So, Masala Chai is literally 'spiced tea.' Our take on this treasured Indian drink combines premium Ceylon black tea with cinnamon, cardamom and ginger for an inviting fragrance, zesty flavor, and invigorating, aromatic finish. We suggest two heaping teaspoons per 8 oz cup, boiling water for 7-10 minutes. Sugar, cream or soy if desired.
