aapkipassandlogoAap Ki Pasand started in 1981 in Old Delhi, India. The tea tasters of Aap Ki Pasand choose the best tea from certain tea gardens throughout India. They have a passion for aroma, flavor, and quality. Since this is a company in India, I was excited to try their traditional Masala Chai.

This tea contains black tea, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom. When smelling the tea leaves, what stands out is the ginger and cardamom. The leaves have a rich, bold aroma. I steeped 1 1/2 teaspoon in 2 cups of almost boiling water for 4 minutes. The water turned a dark brown almost immediately. The smell of the tea steeping was spicy and the smell of ginger dominated the blend. I was expecting the flavor to be strong and spicy. I was pleasantly surprised when the taste turned out to be sweet with a spicy aftertaste. The black tea is strong but smooth and buttery. This blend has a very earthy essence to it. It is a warming, soothing brew.

For my second cup of this tea, I added some honey and cream. This brought out more cinnamon flavors. The honey blended deliciously with the ginger. I could just drink this lovely chai all day. Like most people who have a food that they consider their comfort food, chai is my comfort tea.

Aap Ki Pasand offers free shipping worldwide on their website and they offer a great variety of teas, both loose leaf and bagged. This particular Masala Chai can be bought loose of bagged.
