Want something really unique, yet still tasty?
Fireside Chai tea will leave you with a wow feeling after your first sip, giving you and your friends something to chat about around the fire. We took a traditional Indian Masala Chai, using a higher grade base tea and higher grade spices, then added the Wow: A hint of smokey Lapsong Suchong and extra cardamom to balance it.
This tea mix is full-bodied, aromatic, and smooth. The spices are comfortingly familiar yet also exotic, leaving you that sense that your are next to a campfire. The steeping suggestions are just a starting place, adjust to your taste; but to achieve the creamy thickness of masala chai, you do need to boil the milk. You can also make this as a simple spiced tea using 1 tsp per 8oz boiling water, for 4-6 min. Add sugar or milk to your taste.
Chai, or more accurately Masala Chai, is a traditional Indian way of doing black tea. It consists of Indian black tea, Indian spices, milk, and a sweetener. There are an infinite number of chai recipes in India and it seems every family has their own secret chai recipe. We received this recipe from the wife of one of our tea Indian suppliers.
