The word ‘chai’ dates back to 16th century when it commanded courtrooms as the prime beverage savored by emperors while they relaxed in their sun-kissed gardens.
Simply put, chai is the perfectly blended concoction of tea leaves and spices that comes together to create a delightfully flavorful and aromatic drink. Spices like cardamom, ginger, tulsi (holy basil), and cinnamon are used in unique combinations to concote aromatic brews that can appease the palate of even the pickiest tea-drinker.
A True Tea Journey
No matter what chai tea leaves you choose to steep, whether the hills of Darjeeling or the lowlands of Assam or those harvested from the Nilgiri ranges, every loose chai tea cup brings you a rich, distinct taste.
Chai, particularly the ones from the plantations of Darjeeling, offers a light-coloured infusion and a fresh, flowery aroma. This much-vaunted classic has a certain astringency and musky spiciness that set it apart from the horde of commercial tea leaves that flood the market.
The Assamese chai, meanwhile, grown near sea level, showcases a bright color and a malty flavour, which makes it a perfect accompaniment to a light breakfast.
On the other hand, the chai tea flavors of tea leaves harvested from the Nilgiris are known to have an intensely strong aroma.
