This is a more mellow combination of spices without the addition of vanilla that our Chai blend has. Assam tea, freshly ground cardamom, and spices combined together create this hauntingly subtle spice tea blend. Add some milk and sugar, and you could be in Calcutta awaiting the fresh teas coming down from Assam and Darjeeling. Our Indian Spice loose tea has been slightly enhanced with additional spices and a touch of vanilla and renamed Chai. Please give it a try!

To help you make the delightful Indian beverage of Chai, we created this Indian Spice. It is strong and definitely spicy, although we do not add the peppers found in many Indian Chai recipes. Just add the milk and sugar you think is correct. It may also be drunk on its own.
Assam CTC is the base for this tea, which is blended with nutmeg and cardamom. The dry leaves are a bright brown and have been cut and curled into small pellets.
The liquor is medium to dark brown.
The spice of nutmeg and cardamom come through.
This tea is very bold and has a strong body.
Indian Spice tastes of a mixture of strong spices and makes delicious chai tea.
