Vibrant, intense and indulgent, this tea has all of the characteristics you’d expect from a traditional Indian recipe. Made from a combination of strong black tea leaves and exotic spices, and prepared with hot milk and sugar, Chai is the ultimate in unique and adventurous infusions. Chai is traditionally prepared by a decoction of green cardamom pods, ground cloves, cinnamon sticks, ground ginger, black peppercorn and then all of this is mixed with some fine black leaves – normally Assam.
However, the beauty of Chai is that there is no fixed recipe. You can adapt the blend to suit your tastes. More cinnamon? Go for! Like a bit more ginger? Absolutely! Taking its flavour from the eponymous spices of the land in which it originates, Chai tea has a sweet, rich flavour which you simply won’t find in any other varieties. No matter if you are looking for a plain Chai tea or a delicious blend which incorporates novel and exciting flavours - the Twinings Chai Tea selection is simply amazing.
Milk? Soy? Water? You might have stood in the queue at your local café and overheard someone asking for a ‘Chai Soy’ or an ‘Espresso Semi Chai'. Chai is such a versatile drink and can easily be adapted to everyone’s personal taste. Get started with your very own version or take a look at our guide on How to make the perfect Chai tea.
