Masala means “spice” in sanskrit and this traditionally spiced chai will not disappoint!  With the flavorful Assam black tea as a base, combined with a large dose of Ayurvedic spices such as ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom, this tea is an energizing union that will surely get your blood flowing, your mind sharp, and your digestion in action as you start your day!

General Directions

Bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of milk or milk substitute to just below a boil. Add in 2 tablespoons of the tea and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the preferred flavor has been reached. Strain
into a mug, let cool slightly, and add in honey if desired.

Alternatively one can use 1½ cups of water and ½ cup of milk or milk substitute for a slightly less creamy, but still delicious cup of chai.  This variation is perfect for Kapha types!

    I have been a long time fan of the caffeine free version of chai (using roobios) but wanted an altnerative with a black tea base. This formula is delicious. I have bought chai from other companies, but Svastha Ayureveda’s formula is the perfect balance of spice – strong but not imbalanced. Highly recommend!
