Our take on the classic masala chai tea kicks it up a notch. Flat, flavorless chai blends are out. We only source our masala chai with quality, organic spices that wake up the flavor profile of every cup you brew.

A Warming Cup of Tradition

Combining our organic black tea from the Darjeeling and Assam regions of India with Sri Lankan spices, we’ve created a winning combination that’s a faithful take on the classic masala chai. Our malty black tea offsets the robust spices, creating a luxurious drink you’ll want to come back to over and over again. The multifaceted spice blend uses a balanced combination of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and other flavors to create an experience all its own, while paying tribute to a classic Indian tea tradition.

Origins

Our organic black tea is sourced from the Darjeeling and Assam regions of India. The tea leaves are grown, cultivated, and harvested in a handful of family tea plots before being prepared and shipped to your door, all so you can enjoy the perfect cup. We source the spices used in our masala chai from Sri Lanka.

Health Benefits of Masala Chai Tea

Rich in Antioxidants

Both black tea and cinnamon are high in antioxidants, including polyphenols. Polyphenols help remove free radicals in the body and decrease levels of cell damage. They also reduce a person’s risk of developing chronic disease.

Increased Insulin Sensitivity

Insulin is a key factor in how the body regulates its metabolism and rations out its own energy stores. Cinnamon has been shown to greatly increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin, which helps insulin work more effectively. This can help reduce blood sugar levels. In turn, this can help reduce the risk of developing diabetes.

Reduced Bad Cholesterol

Excess low-density cholesterol levels in the body can lead to health problems like heart failure and stroke. Drinking black tea every day can help reduce low-density cholesterol in people with elevated cholesterol levels.

Improved Liver Health

Cloves contain compounds that can assist in healthy liver function – more specifically, the compound eugenol. In animal studies, clove oil has been found to decrease oxidative stress and inflammation, contributing to overall proper liver function.

Decreased Blood Sugar

In addition to improving insulin resistance, cinnamon can help lower blood sugar. It does this by decreasing the amount of glucose that can enter your bloodstream after a meal. By interfering with digestive enzymes, it slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in your digestive system.
