In addition to this, all our spices used in Chai teas are sourced from their place of origin and within their respective harvest periods to get superior quality.

    After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.

Gorgeous chai teas!

We love your chai teas!! And how nice it was, to get the tea, vacuum packed, to preserve the real freshness! I first encountered your teas at the Columbus Circle Holiday Market, NYC, where I bought your Christmas Joy box of chai teas. Your Holiday Breakfast blend is my absolute favorite.

Lighter in flavor than I would imagine

Darjeeling is to me, a very light and fragile taste. To add the masala chai culinary herbs I thought would be made stronger yet it remained light. I am one to love in between, not too strong, not too light. Depending on my mood, I will choose Darjeeling and depending on a need for stronger flavor I go to the Original Indian tea or Tumeric spice. All is good, depends on what you like. The teas are especially wonderful, pure and delicately harvested. Glad to have such an assortment.

Try it as a Chai Tea Latte!

A more delicate spin on the classic masala chai

As expected, the Darjeeling version is much lighter and works well also without milk, or even sugar. Still, a tiny cloud of milk does give it that extra smoothness and mellowness. It is not over-spiced, and the balance is quite well. The taste of cloves (and perhaps pepper) are just slightly more pronounced, but as a change that is quite fun. It goes very well with the muscatel of the Darjeeling.
