Some of the finest black teas in the world come from India, the world's leading producer of tea. Included in these teas are the robust "malty" Assams, fine distinctive Darjeelings and clean well balanced Nilgiris. However, most tea consumed in India is not enjoyed for its fine, subtle flavor nuances, but instead is blended with sweet and pungent spices to make the popular beverage, "Chai".
Indian Chai is enjoyed in cities and the smallest of villages, and is usually offered to every visitor to a home. In Northern India, where Chai is the beverage of choice, tiny tea stalls line the streets where all day long "chaiwallas" (tea vendors) brew and serve tea.
Chai is usually brewed very strong with lots of sugar and milk and often concentrated. Traditional Indian Chai combines rich black tea that is boiled in milk and flavored with local spices such as sweet cinnamon, sharp clove, penetrating cardamom, and occasionally black peppercorns, pungent ginger and hot red chilies, and sweetened with sugar. This spicy tea is brewed in a samovar-type vessel and is always served very hot. Hurried customers often pour a little Chai in the saucer to cool it before drinking.
Stash Decaffeinated Chai Spice is made with naturally decaffeinated black teas, cinnamon, clove, ginger and cardamom. The brewed tea is very aromatic with a flavor that is strong and sweet with rich, lingering flavor notes. This tea is delicious plain, or with milk (regular or evaporated) and sugar added. All the rich Chai flavor with less caffeine.
