A Guide to Chai Tea

Commonly known as the national drink in India, the popularity of Chai has spread worldwide over the last few years.

In India, it is known as Masala Chai, Masala is the word for spice in Hindi, Chai simply means tea.

There is no traditional recipe for Chai, Indian families mix up their own spicy brew, using black tea with milk, sugar, and aromatic spices.

Spices like cardamom, ginger, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, fennel, and pepper are most commonly used.

The increase in popularity has led to a range of new variations of Chai. The spices are these days not just married with the original Indian black tea but also green tea and Rooibos to create a warming drink of different kind.

We stock a range of top-quality Chai teas that are delicious served with milk and sugar to taste. Not for the faint hearted is our extra spicy Red Chili Chai, or if you prefer it slightly more sweet give our Chocolate Chai a go or the smooth Chai Vanilla. For the true classic, there is only one answer - Classic Chai. This category also contains herbal chai based on rooibos and chai based on green tea.


History of Chai Tea

Legends differ on when Chai Tea’s history began, some say it started around 9000 years ago!

The first appearance of Chai Tea arrived after 1835 when the British set up tea gardens in India.

In the 1900’s vendors used milk, sugar and spices to replace the expensive black tea ingredient and Chai Teas popularity soared. This was due to its inexpensive prices but flavorful taste!  


Variations of Chai Tea

With no traditional recipe existing and the taste for Chai Tea steadily growing, many new creative blends have been launched over recent years to tickle customers taste buds. Some of the more recent blends include:

  • Chai Vanilla: Mixing the typical tastes of India and mingling with vanilla, this gives a balanced mix of leaves and spice, creating a tea with a smooth, milky character. Our Ronnefeldt Chai Vanilla is a perfect example.
  • Chocolate Chai:  This tea tastes like a creamy cinnamon chocolate with a slight hint of ginger. The aromatic Assam tea blends perfectly with the spices and the intense note of cocoa. Try the Ronnefeldt Chocolate Chai to taste it for yourself!
  • Chilli Chai: Mixing the spicy taste of India with real chillies, this tea is sure to warm you up! Try our Ronnefeldt Red Chilli Chai & see if you can handle the heat!
