We’ve taken our Rare Masala Chai loose leaf tea to a whole new level of flavour and complexity, by blending in whole pieces of Himalayan turmeric sourced from small holder farms in the state of Sikkim, India.

Bright, spicy and stimulating.

Shake well before use to distribute the spice and leaves evenly. Due to the size of the grind, some sediment from the spices may get through and we would suggest using a fine strainer.

Golden Chai

I am a bit of a chai snob. When I have time I grind my own spices and use one of Rare Tea's black teas. When I don't, which is most of the time, I had been using the Masala Chai, but recently switched to the Golden Chai. The addition of the turmeric to the spices in the Masala Chai gives the Golden Chai a bit more earthiness and pepperiness, which definitely enhances the flavor for me - and I get the health benefits from the turmeric. Another winner from Rare Tea.

Tasting Notes

Malty black tea with peppery spice and a deep earthiness. This tea infuses to a deeply aromatic and richly spiced cup.

Quantity

Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.
To serve with milk, infuse at 100°C/212°F.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes and taste regularly to find your optimum infusion time.

Infusions

You can infuse these leaves at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

20p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

If you want to make your Golden Chai, latte style - we recommend making a strong two-minute infusion of 60ml of boiling water with 2.5g of tea and then adding hot full fat milk.

You could also try infusing the tea in hot, full fat milk - fat carries flavour and is delicious - heat 2.5g of tea per 150ml of full fat milk until just below simmering point, infusing until it reaches the required strength. You might want to sweeten with a little honey or sugar.

Origin & Craft

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)
