masala chai
Our Masala Chai tea blend combines premium Ceylon black tea with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and ginger. In Indian culture, 'Masala' means 'a blend of spices', and 'chai' simply means 'tea.' So, Masala Chai is literally 'spiced tea'. Our interpretation tries to stay true to its definition thanks to a warm and inviting fragrance, zesty flavor, and invigorating, aromatic finish. We suggest two heaping teaspoons per 8 oz cup. Sugar or milk if desired.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 7-10 minutes.

Ingredients & Lore

blended with black tea, cloves, ginger, cardamom, natural cinnamon flavor & cinnamon
Historically, tea in India was viewed as herbal medicine, rather than as a beverage for taste. Some chai spice blends still in current use are derived from Ayurvedic medical texts. Popular spices include anise, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, peppercorn, and ginger. Traditional preparation actually calls for the spices, milk and leaves to be simmered over sustained heat, rather than steeped in preheated water (like regular tea). In India, chai is served in little clay cups from chai carts. After enjoying your tea, the cups are shattered on the ground and allowed to compost - an earth-friendly alternative to the paper and plastic cups popular in the U.S.

On the bag and website it says to steep for 7 to 10 min@212°. Someone on Facebook said that they were told by customer service that it was a mistake and the Masala is to be steeped only for 5min. Is this true?
