A closer look at chai ingredients

Traditionally, masala chai consists of a black tea base and a few core spices. A closer look at each ingredient lets us in on what each one brings to the pot.

  • Cardamom

    Cardamon is an ancient herb that’s seriously fragrant with sharp vegetal notes of green spice and pepper, providing the perfect base for any chai to build on.

  • Cinnamon

    Cinnamon gives chai its sweetness and warmth, with its naturally sweet flavours providing a robust full-body taste without any bitterness or astringency.

  • Fennel

    Fennel adds an anise flavour and can be found in India, Europe, Middle-East and China, while fennel seeds are typically harvested when their heads turn light brown.

  • Milk and Sweetener

    Milk and sweetener help to bring out spice’s natural flavour. Simmering highlights the milk’s inherent sweetness, while honey is often used to make the brew a little more palatable, according to your taste.

  • Star Anise

    Star Anise brings a dark liquorice and sweetness to the mix.

  • Ginger

    Ginger brings a strong, perky tone to any chai mix. Hailing from the same family as turmeric and cardamon, it’s also known to be a great digestive aid.

  • Cloves

    Cloves leverage even more aromatic flavour into chai.
