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.

Glorious memories of Nepal

A tea that immediately reminds me of happy visits to Nepal. I love a brew of it in the morning, but refuse to add condensed milk as I feel that's a step too far!

Rich in spicy flavour, for me it's like going on a journey. A must have for the winter.

I'm a great fan of Masala Chai, & after tasting this particular one, the flavour is so clean on the palette revealing all the different spices. Very enjoyable. Perfect in the winter.

Tasting Notes

A rich malty black tea with a perfect balance of comforting and aromatic spices. Good enough to be drunk on its own and equally perfect as a milky drink. This Masala Chai has been carefully crafted and blended to be delicious however you like to enjoy it.

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.
