Black Tea

Chai

Aromatic, Malty, Warming From Assam, India (blend)

A highly aromatic combination of rich and malty Assam black tea from India with cinnamon, cardamom and ginger spices.

Chai

Inspired by Masala Chai we’ve enjoyed on the streets of Kolkata, we've created a Chai with uncompromising ingredients. We've selected a base of pure, single origin black tea from Assam, India – tea that's renowned for its rich, malty flavour. We've matched the strength and flavour of the tea with cardamom, cinnamon and ginger spices for a sweet and highly aromatic infusion. For the richest Chai experience, try it with plenty of warm milk.

  • Cultivar - Camellia sinensis var. assamica
  • Picked - Summer (2nd flush)
  • Oxidisation level - 100%

Tasting notes

  • What to Look For

    Walnut coloured tea leaves mixed with a cornucopia of authentic spices.

  • Aroma

    Cardamom, ginger and cinnamon.

  • In the Cup

    A rich ruby-red infusion, perfect to add milk to.

  • Taste

    Rich, rounded and warming, combining the body of great Assam tea with invigorating spices.

    Disappointing

    Fell in love with the perfect chai but they have changed the recipe and now it’s unrecognisable. The tea overpowers the delicate flavours of the spices. Won’t be buying again.



    Thank you for your feedback. We developed our new Chai recipe to more accurately reflect how Chai is drunk in it’s true home; specifically taking inspiration from the streets of Kolkata, where a strong base black tea is used with aromatic spices, and drunk with milk. We’ve selected a base of single origin black tea from Assam – to deliver this strength, and matched the tea with individually sourced spices – maximising the quality of each (many Chai teas are made with a blend of spices). You can read more in our Deep Dive on our new Chai (https://jingtea.com/journal/deep-dive-into-chai/). We’d be happy to recommend some lighter black teas in our range for you, to be drunk without milk, get in touch and we can arrange a personalised 121 tasting for you.

    Perfect chai

    I received my chai tea this morning and wanted to leave a review straight away as it is absolutely delicious. I added warm oat milk and it is the perfect blend of warming spices with the malty Assam tea. I usually make my own chai tea, boiling it from scratch as haven’t found a blend that I really like. Not any more. Thank you Jing.

    OMG

    What can I say... still mid first cup and it's already my favourite UK masala chai.

    Assam breakfast is a favourite black tea with a good strong taste, so that's a good start. Add that to the omission of cloves which always make everything taste like cough candy sweets and you're really on to a winner.

    Jing, please don't ever stop producing this!
