Your FAQs, Answered
For Masala Chai

Chai means tea. Therefore, there's no need in asking for a "chai tea", because you are simply saying "tea" twice!

The word "Masala" means a spice mixture ground into a paste or powder. Masala Chai – literally, spiced tea – is made with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs. There is generally no fixed recipe for Masala Chai tea in India and traditionally, many families have their own versions of the tea.

Life is about balance. Many drink our Masala Chai as part of their daily morning ritual (often with steamed oatmilk) or as an afternoon pick me up. If you are preparing yours with whip cream (for a decadent chai), or with a splash of spirit (for a naughty chai), well, let's be honest, that might be a bit indulgent for everyday. But listen to your body, be mindful, and if in doubt, seek professional advice from your heatlh professional.

As our Masala Chai contains caffeine, if you are caffeine sensitive you will want to pay attention to what time of day you enjoy this blend (or switch to our naturally caffeine-free Herbal Chai). Otherwise, if caffeine sensitivity is not a concern, whenever you feel like going on a decadent journey via your tea cup, or when you're feeling full (for chai's carminative properties).
