About Bombay Chai Tea

Tea Type : Black Tea

The base of this Tea Forté Chai tea is black tea from the Nilgiri region in Southern India. Nilgiri literally means ‘Blue Mountains and is next to the Assam and the Darjeeling regions, the most important black tea producing regions in India.

Chai is in many languages the word for tea and is believed to be derived from the Cantonese ‘Cha’ (for example Persian, Hindi, Korean, Russian, Mandarin,and Swahili). In the western world Chai tea is mostly referred to as a full flavor, spiced Indian black tea that is enjoyed from morning until night inIndia, where it is traditionally served with boiling whole milk and sugar for a unique infusion.

The wonderful yet delicately composed mélange of ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, star anise, black pepper and flavoring gives Tea Forté Chai tea its characterTea Forté Chai contains very flavorful and aromatic spices. . This black tea is known as a ‘very forgiving black tea’, meaning that it is almost impossible to ‘over steep’.Our Bombay Chai combines black tea with the spices found in a traditional Indian masala chai. Chai recipes vary enormously, using different spices, sugars and amounts and types of milk. However, they are uniformly well-lightened and sweetened.

While "chai" is used in English to refer to nearly any spiced tea or tea latte drink, chai is actually the generic word for tea in India, Iran, Thailand and elsewhere. In fact, it is very similar to the word for tea in Japan, "cha" (as seen in Sencha)

We strongly recommend milk and honey to taste with our Bombay Chai. For a richer, milkier drink, heat your milk before adding it and use up to 1 part milk for every 2 parts water. Prepared in this fashion, our Chai is a great breakfast tea, particularly in winter.

Ingredients and certifications may differ slightly between our pyramid infusers and loose tea canisters for this blend, see package for details.

      My morning go-to tea!

      Love the Bombay chai tea in the morning. Strong chai spices make this a bolder chai than most I've tried! Delicious with almond milk and honey.

      This blend is wonderfully aromatic and spicy. I prefer it plain, no honey or milk, etc., to enjoy the complexity.

      Every morning before I teach my morning lectures, I have an exquisite cup of Chai Bombay Black Tea. I find this to be the most satisfying and relaxing part of my day. The tea is soothing and delicious. I love the fact that my office has the sweet aroma of Chai. I also enjoy the fact that my tea can only be ordered and I can only get this tea at the most established restaurants and hotels. I truly love this tea. Thank you

      Very good Chai

      This is a great Chair. I sometimes like it best sweet and light with a dash of nutmeg. This tea never gets bitter even if you over steep so it's a great option for busy mornings when you might get distracted.
