Chai Masala (Spiced Tea) is a tea blend with origins in India. It is traditionally a mix of black tea and spices that is steeped in milk with sweeteners added to it.
This Chai blend is formulated to brew in less time than when making traditional Chai. For this tea we have blended black teas with spices and added natural flavor to enhance the spiciness inherent in Chai Masala tea blends. This tea brews to an amber cup with an exotic spice aroma and taste.
Ingredients: Black teas, organic cinnamon pieces, organic anise seeds, organic cloves, natural spice flavor and organic cardamom pods.
Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
2 tsp Chai Black Tea
1 cup boiling water
3 oz. sweetened condensed milk
3 oz. coconut milk
Brew the tea for 4 minutes in the boiling water. Strain and combine with the sweetened condensed milk and the coconut milk. Pour into popsicle molds, ice cube trays, or paper cups and freeze. Rich & creamy, these popsicles will thrill the whole family!

|I have tried many chai blends; some have too much cinnamon for me; others have one spice that stands out too much from the others. This is a perfect blend - harmonious spices that are perfect together with no single one standing out by itself. One of my very favorite teas that I cannot be without! The other is gingerbread|
|Very good traditional chai flavors. Not much else to say.|
