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 happen 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 spices used 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!
