price level: $$$$
Our Masala Chai blend combines pungent Assam and South India broken leaf teas blended with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, and freshly ground tellicherry peppercorns. It's a perfect balance of sweet and hot spices, blended in the traditional style of Kolkata, India. Brew it fresh and mix it with warm milk and sugar to taste.
I really liked the flavor of this chai tea. However, for me, it was a little too "pepper-y" for me. I don't think there is pepper in the tea, but kind of burnt my throat a little like pepper would do. I will not steep as long next time to see if I can tolerate it a little better. I think my error was steeping too long.
