    The Indian Spiced Chai Tea blend from English Tea Store is based on a premium black tea from Sri Lanka that is blended with an assortment of delightful spices. Best enjoyed with milk and sugar to taste, chai is so prevalent in India and Sri Lanka that it could be called the "National drink".

    The word "chai" literally means tea. Often a lower quality tea is used to make "chai" as it is thought the spices will cover-up any deficiencies in the tea. We do not believe this and prefer to make our dry tea chai mix from real Indian spices and high-grown Ceylon tea. The quality of the tea elevates this chai to a new level.

    Turn the bag of Chai upside down a few times. The reason is that during transit the spices can settle at the bottom of the bag.

    How to Make Tea

    Available in 3 sizes (Please select from the options above):

    • First time trying English Tea Store's Indian Spiced Chai Loose Leaf Tea?

      Try our Sample Size of 1 ounce.
    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 4 ounces
    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 16 ounces (1 pound)

    Caffeine content: Medium - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of black tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 27 to 35 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 – 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: High - polyphenols by dry weight. The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

      Is it turmeric or cardamom? Anyway, tastes and smells of Indian spices. Any time of day, a good tea I like hot w/sugar

      This tea is acceptable but the spice is a little lighter than I would have liked. Wish I had read the reviews before I purchased it.

      agree with everyone else that there's not a lot of flavor. Try the Night of the Iguana Chocolate instead. Not too heavy on the chocolate (luckily) but really good and spicy.
