Where To Buy: Chai Wallah
Fair Trade Organic Rembeng Estate Assam tea is the perfect match for our organic chai spice. A robust full-bodied CTC tea favored by chai drinkers in India for its strong malty taste even when blended and boiled with chai spice, milk and sugar. Street chai wallahs tend to use the less expensive fannings or dust tea when making chai as they get a better return on their endeavors.
If you are looking for a mighty strong Chai – give this one a go-around! It’ll put hair on your chest! (As my Grandfather used to say). And if it’s not strong enough as-is this wonderful company has SPICE ONLY options available and you can add as much additional spice as you want! BUT…this is a mighty strong chai on it’s own tho!
Spice With Black Tea from Chai Wallah has a DARK Brown almost coffee brown-on the verge of-black look to it after infusing. The spices are in full force! I can taste the Black Pepper first then the Cardamom followed by the cloves, ginger and the Cinnamon isn’t as strong as the other ingredients.
This one I may try additives with…on future attempts. As many of you know I drink all of my teas plain – even Chai. I like to taste the natural “as-is” flavors without any interruptions. But after I do know what the natural taste tastes like I’m not opposed to experimenting!
Regardless…this is a strong and hearty chai! What a Wake-Up Call! Sturdy and loud! It sure has attitude…and I LIKE that!
