A rich black loose leaf tea with freshly ground spices. Unlike a traditional Masala Chai, which often uses a low grade tea and disguises it with spices, this is a beautifully hand-crafted tea carefully enhanced with spices.

Deliciously enlivening.

Tormi's masala chai review

I've made masala with my own spice blend i guess. Some nice kardamom, blackpepper, fresh ginger, cinnamon and even though the black tea wasn't as good as it could've been. I liked the taste of my homemade more. So in the future I would rather get badass black tea and then make my own blend. But still enjoyed yours a lot, drank it almost everyday and loved every cup.

Just the right level of spiciness

This tea is my favourite with some cake or biscuits. The spiciness of it is just right and not overpowering the wonderful black tea at its core. It's become a staple for Sundays in our house, and it loved by the whole family.

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 the finest strainer you own.


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 80°C (176°F) water, or if you prefer it with milk use 100°C (212°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


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

Cost Per Cup

17p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

If you want to make your Masala 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.

Origin & Craft

Our Rare Masala Chai is a combination of hand-crafted black tea blended from harvests across a small, independent estate in the Shire Highlands of Malawi. We then blend in our own masala chai spice mix - created in London in very small batches to guarantee quality and flavour. Our spice mix is made up from ginger, green cardamom, black pepper, cloves, and cinnamon.
