Product Description

Calcutta Chai is for adventurous spirits - it includes black pepper, taking chai to a new spice frontier. All organic, this chai is perfect for making a latte, as the spice really cuts through the milk. Be careful on your last sip - the pepper can settle!

Insider Tip: Use a brew basket to ensure no tea falls into your cup, which can happend if your infuser has too large of a mesh. Try infusing this tea with a touch of local honey to add sweetness to your drink. Brew it strong if serving with milk.

Caffeine Level: High.

Chai is the word for tea in many parts of the world, but for most it is meant to name a distinct blend of black tea and spices. Often prepared with milk and sweetened (called a chai latte), it is a hugely popular tea blend, but the actual blends and spiced use vary widely. Common spices include cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, and pepper. At The Tea Smith, we have over a half dozen blends, ranging from Traditional to a Rooibos Chai. Find your favorite and enjoy!

Ingredients: Organic Black Tea, organic cinnamon, organic cardamom, organic ginger root, organic black pepper, organic cloves

I ordered Calcutta Chai after reading the on-line description and customer reviews. I had the impression that this was going to be an overwhelmingly "peppery" flavored tea. Sounded "adventurous". Actually the flavor is more subtle in pepper zing, but still quite delicious and satisfying. A decidedly different "take" on a spicy chai beverage. Goes well with both Asian & western dishes, or simply as a warm refresher.

I was so excited to see you offering an organic chai tea and it does not disappoint! It satisfies my sweet tooth with the perfect spiciness you would expect in a chai tea. It is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly afternoon.

This is the closest I've found to the chai I've been served in and around Tezpur, India during my visits there. I like mine a little more "tea-ey" (new word) so I add a pinch or two of Assam Konghea to the pot when I'm brewing it. Added bonus: between the spent leaves of this blend and Teasmith's fantastic Morocan Mint, I have the best smelling waste basket in Western Nebraska!
Marvelous taste and aroma!

Oh my gosh! I can't believe no one has written about Special Calcutta Chai. This is my absolute favorite tea! Add some Coffeemate Vanilla Chai Spice creamer and you've got yourself as dessert! I hate to throw out the spent leaves; even after several brews they still smell so good you could use them for sachets. Try it!!!
