There are hundreds of versions of Chai Spice in the market today, but nothing, absolutely nothing compares to the Masala Chai from the Western state of India, Maharashtra! Walking along the streets, you will see Chai vendors on small carts vying to be the best chaiwala as they hand out their steaming glasses - not cups - of Masala Chai to the many customers that stop by on their way to work, after lunch or any other time of day.
The most common Masala Chai is one that is made with freshly ground Cardamom added to fresh milk and tea leaves, boiled for a few minutes and strained through a well-used piece of cloth. However, there are a myriad versions even within India, some calling for added Ginger, Cloves, Fennel, or even rose petals.
Our Chai Spice stands out with a combination of a mighty dose of pure organic Cardamom that is swoon-worthy itself, along with organic Cloves, Ginger, and Star Anise that will take you on a journey to India! Make Chai tea with this blend or spice up your favorite desserts.
Since Cardamom loses its potency when ground after a while, we grind fresh cardamom along with the other spices so that all the inherent volatile oils of the spices intermingle and bind to form our unique Chai flavor profile. We also package our Chai Spice in minimal quantities so you always get the freshest batch for your personal cuppa!
