Chai spiced tea has become quite popular. You can find a variety of instant and premade spiced chai teas in the grocery store. But chai experience calls for real, fresh spices.

Every Chai tea creator has their own blend of spices. Chai Wallah is a company started by Neil Hartely, and Neil, after sampling hundreds of cups of Chai spiced tea in India, has created his own unique blend of Chai spice.

When I opened my package of Chai Wallah's Real Spice Chai with Black Tea, I was amazed with the spice mixture. It was fresh and had a very strong smell. Chai Wallah blends cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and peppercorns. I knew this would be a tongue tingling mixture and I was right! I loved the cardamom added to this blend and the ginger and peppercorns give it a strong spicey kick!

These spices are blended with an Assam black Tea. I followed the instructions when preparing this tea. I used 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of water and 2 tsp of chai mix. I brought this to boil and simmered 2 min. I also added some honey when it was hot. then I poured it all through a strainer.

It would definitely warm you up on a cold day. The spices blend together well, but I prefer to use a little less spice mixture and add a bit of black tea. I do this because the bite of the ginger and peppercorns is strong. But I'm sure I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to pepper. I do love the warmth and spice of this blend. I wouldn't change this blend or take out the peppercorns. I just like to make it a bit weaker.

The only negative about this tea, is that it takes a little extra prep. You get a pan dirty in the boiling in the process, but in my experience, the best Chai spice tea requires this kind of prep. I suspect it would be great with soy milk and plan on trying it this way.

An excellent Chai spice blend!
