Origin, India

Chai is an integral part of life in India and simply translates to 'Tea' in Hindi. Calling it 'Chai tea' is considered redundant. Chaiwallahs' (tea vendors) are present at street corners brewing basic black tea with spices especially during early morning.

500 Mile Chai

The tale of '500 Mile Chai' originates from the many late night truck drivers stopping at small Chai stands 'Dhabas' on the highway and asking for really strong, sweet Chai to help them drive long distances (in a humorous tone - 'for another 500 miles').

Choice of the Leaf

The grade of tea commonly used for Chai is known as 'Cut, Tear and Curl (CTC)', representing a heavily rolled leaf pellet with very low moisture content. It is ideal for boiling, which is the traditional way to make Chai.

Golden Brew

Once the leaf has been optimally boiled, adding milk and sugar provides a delightful 'Golden Glow'.

Organic Spices

We hand blend the organic black tea with organic spices - ginger, cloves, cardamom and cinnamon.

Chai Utensils

Chaiwallahs in India offer chai in simple kettles and small tapered glasses. 'Kasoras' (Chai Cups) made of low fired clay are also famous for imparting a distinct 'Earthiness' to the brew.

Suggested Use

Chaiwallah Brew

Use one teaspoon of 500 Mile Chai for eight ounces water. Bring to full boil for three minutes. Add whole milk/soy milk (in ratio of 1/4th milk to 3/4 water), and let boil another two minutes. Strain and sweeten to taste.

100% organic black tea leaves, 100% organic cinnamon, 100% organic dried ginger, 100% organic cloves, 100% organic cardamom.

Spicy, earthy, delicious

This is some of the best Chai I have ever experienced. I have brewed it both as the tin suggests, and simply in my teapot. Both are delicious. For the sake of time, I brew 4g of this tea for 5 minutes, then pour it into my cup with honey and milk. Absolutely lovely.
