Masala Indian


A decadent chai, made with rich, exotic Indian spices. This blend carries the goodness of earthy Indian spices, including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, clove, mace and nutmeg blended together with holy basil and black tea. It promises a hearty sip with every brew.



Black pepper


Holy basil (Tulsi)





the experience



Invigoratingly herbal with notes of cinnamon and clove




A general feeling of goodness is the curtain raiser for this tea. A sweet, woody note paves way for imposing flavors of herbs, cinnamon and ginger, diffusing well into the back of the throat. Ginger, particularly, lingers long on the palate.


Soft cheese, puff pastry and steamed vegetables.

This chai is amazing, with a fantastic aroma and mix of spices - you can taste all the spices, not a single one overpowering the others.

Traditional spicy Masala Chai

You can really taste the cinnamon and the bite of pepper in this blend. It is strong and not sweet until you add your own honey. This does not taste like something you buy in the grocery store. This is authentic Masala Chai. My son who is a coffee drinker loves to share a cup with me. It's great as the first cup of the day or as a pick me up in the afternoon. I drink tea all day and like to savor different flavors.

Absolutely Awesome!

This tea is just amazing! It is quite nearly perfect. I love spicy chai tea (the spicier the better!) and while this definitely could have been a bit spicier just for the extra kick, it is still awesome. The ginger mixes very very well with the cinnamon and is all around a good touch. Loved it! Smells amazing too.

Fantastic chai

Best Served : Anytime, Morning, Dessert Tea.

This aromatic chai is wonderful! It is full of flavors that are complex and very pleasurable on the palate. It smells wonderful when steeping too. I think it is one of my favorite chai teas yet! It is not overpowering with any one of the spices, like some chai teas can be, only hitting a single note. This tea delivers complex flavors that compliment each other without overpowering each other, or the tea! Wonderful!

Absolutely gorgeous and utterly unique

Likes : Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon, Dessert Tea.

Masala Indian Chai is a complex and expertly concocted and balanced blend. The taste truly is utterly unique and can only be described as being akin to cherry flavoured cola bottle pick and mix sweets. Honestly!

Perfect for those that love cinnamon!

This was a tea that had a very nice, strong, woodsy flavor with a good amount of cinnamon and cloves. It's the perfect thing to wake up drinking, but I have also drank it periodically throughout the day.

Very Enjoyable

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

The aroma of the dry leaves was delightful and became even more distinctive after brewing. The fragrance evoked memories of visits to spice markets in Sri Lanka and South Africa. Reviewed as part of the Teabox subscription program.

fragrant and spicy!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning.

Delicious wit a bit of your choice sweetener and some lemon. The spice mélange comes well together and you can feel each flavor! Good to kick you awake, or to help digestion after lunch (wich is the main meal here in Brazil). Better not to overbrew, though, or the cinammon may overpower the other ingredients.

Classic Chai that is sure to delight.

Likes : Smooth Body, High Quality.

There is an incredible variety of ingredients that come together in this tea. The aroma of them together smells awesome and you can tell that each component is extremely fresh. I love how completely unique the flavor of this tea and I feel that the spiciness of it is at the perfect level. I was a little worried when I heard that there was peppercorns in the tea that it would dominate the other ingredients, but it actually worked well with everything. This is a great tea to drink when it is cold outside and I love adding just a hint of milk to make the texture even smoother. This tea is one of my new favorites and I can't wait to try more again soon.

Wonderful Chai

This is a great tea, the herbs blend well. It is rich in color, and the aroma both dry and wet is awesome. Plain this tea is great, with a bit of honey Mmm, and with a creamy froth awesome. This is on my to buy again list.

Healthy and a little bit of spice

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Morning.

Nice spicy tea gives this tea a healthy kick. Of the three teas I got with Tulsi I would say this is my second favourite and the most "normal" tasting. Very good taste and good for you.

If you are a fan of spiced tea, definitely pick up a sample of this. The spices in this tea blend perfectly for a tasty wake-up call in the morning, and is officially my new favorite chai tea.

Strong cup of chai!

Likes : High Quality.

Best Served : Morning, Evening.

Of the six chai teas in my sampler pack, this was by far the tea with the strongest flavor. This would be a wonderful treat served with steamed milk on a cold, dark winter morning. It definitely has a "bite" to it.
