Chilli Chai tea ticks all the right boxes. It warms you up, peps you up, and tastes delicious, there’s nothing else like it. This warming spiced chai kicks the cold away with a myriad of spices blended with black tea. For those that like their chai with an extra kick, the chilli adds an extra taste dimension, just enough heat to lift the spice flavours. Superb served black or with milk and a little sugar will really bring the flavours up.

Details : Chai comes in many forms, simply because chai is a word for tea in numerous languages, derived from Mandarin Chinese chá. What many of us think of as chai, is actually masala chai. The word masala is an indian term for a mix of spices. So we have masala chai, aka spiced tea. Once masala chai made its way across various oceans, it dropped its first name and become lovingly referred to as just chai.
Going back to the early 20th century, although India was a big producer of tea, consumption of black tea within India remained low, until various campaigns by the Indian Tea Association to promote tea. The official promotion of tea was as served in the English mode, with small added amounts of milk and sugar. People in India added the spices, that we now associate with masala chai. The staple players being cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom, fennel and pepper. For as many various regions as there are in India, there are just as many ways to make this spiced beverage. And, of course, it has now evolved.

A tasty chai with a warming chilli kick

I have been searching for a while for a good spicy chai with a decent chilli kick and really struggled to finding something that didn't lack in one way or another, but now my search is over. This chai has a really nice spice base and a strong earthy tea flavour with a real warming chilli aftertaste that can be made more prominent by letting it stew a little longer in the pot. I'm very happy with it and can strongly recommend it.

Just what I was looking for

Always bought Whittard’s chilli chai until it was discontinued. Thought I’d never find a good enough replacement, but this exceeded what I was looking for.

Chilli Chai Tea

I'm first and foremost a coffee drinker, but I liked the idea of chilli in tea! I Used a small mug-fitting filter and just a level teaspoon of the mix. Wonderful clean taste with a subtle hint of chilli, I may be drinking more black tea in the future.

Fantastic tea

I really loved this. It was an adventure for me. I drank ii without milk (being vegan).
Less chilli than I expected, but tea with some lovely warm flavours, and (I might have imagined this, but) it tasted slightly sweet. I might try a volcanic chilli chai another time.
