Shanti Chai

We are thrilled to be adding Shanti Chai to our collection! Our new signature chai is strong, flavourful, spicy and sweet. Notes of ginger, fennel and cinnamon balance out with a strong and rich black tea base

Story, Folklore, History...

Chai means tea. Masala chai is spiced tea. Our western perception of chai tea (translating to tea tea) is a spiced black tea originating from India. The traditional method of preparing masala chai involves a bit more work, infusing spices with 50% water and 50% milk, bringing to a boil and adding black tea for the last 5-10 minutes. There is no specific method or blend, each person will have a slightly different method of preparing masala chai. Our Shanti Chai is designed to work perfectly as a traditional chai, but also chai latte or just a regular cuppa.

Delicious masala. I have to infuse a lot of it to have the spices that I like though.

Really enjoyed this chai. I usually make my own but this is a great go to when I don’t have time to make my own chai.

this is a very tasty chai, though I do prefer more of a spicy chai, this one is more soothing and delicious. I really enjoyed the taste..it tasted organic and not full of other additives

Although my preference is to have a chai tea that a little more on the spicy and strong side, this is a very nice version. It is perfect for those who do not want an overbearing flavour of the spices traditionally used in chai tea. I have to brew about 2 teaspoons of tea to get it to the strength I like.

This is the best tasting chai I have ever had.  Have recommended the Masala chai to my tea-loving friends.

Thanks Jocelyne! We worked really hard to perfect this chai, it is perfect to drink black, with milk, as a chai latte or as a traditionally prepared chai. The flavours are very well balanced and rich. Enjoy!!
