It’s unlikely that you’ve tasted a masala chai like this one before. Unusually strong for a masala chai, it includes Bishop’s Weed and black cardamom – two of the strongest spices from north India – that lend a powerful kick to the brew, even with the addition of milk.
Top note of mace followed by notes of bishop’s weed, ginger, cardamom and pepper.
The liquor is exceptionally warm and spicy. A pungent hint of Bishop’s Weed starts the cup while warmer notes of mace, clove, and bay leaves emerge towards the middle. Fennel lends sweetness to the cup while pepper enhances the warmth of the liquor. The flavor of Bishop’s Weed returns prominently in the aftertaste.
Croquette, fritters, fried fish, chicken wings, buttery pies and syrup-based desserts.
Extremely spicy; with top notes of clove and bay leaves, followed by fennel in the middle and mace, black cardamom, pepper at the back

I have a slight preference for a chai that takes a bit more tea-like. This is very spicy! But the flavour is great, and overall I like it.

I prepare this tea with milk and sugar because the flavour is very strong. I like it as a spicy dessert tea! It smells incredibly good and spicy, and I love the way all the spices blend together in every sip. For some reason I feel warm and "full" after drinking a few cups!

I've tried a handful of Teabox's chai and the Punjabi is with out a doubt the best (so far). Very aromatic with a strong punch - just wish it had a bit of black pepper in it, as well. This will be my "go to" chai. And quick shipping - from India to NYC in four days delivered! Great job all around, Teabox!

This one is strong and very aromatic! Best taken with milk. P.S Take a sniff when making the tea, its irresistible.

A most delicious chai, the cardamon is the dominant flavour, but is not overpowering and the other spices blend together to form an overarching flavour greater than the sum of its parts.
