According to history, chai was once served only to the great ancient kings of India and the recipe closely guarded as a national secret. It was said to help fuel their ambition and momentum during conquests by strengthening the body and mind from within, allowing enough vigor to resist the invasion of Genghis Khan. Since then, chai has long been used to heal ailments and promote life force by increasing circulation in the system, invigorating health and energy.
This authentic blend uses a balanced recipe with a base of crushed Assam for robust strength and high mountain Altitude Black tea for complexity. For energizing spiciness, thin layers of real cinnamon bark are combined with star anise to sweeten while nutmeg imparts the earthy flavour of ground nuts. Ginger encourages vitality, while black pepper provides a warming effect, and is used in conjunction with cooling cardamom for balance. Cloves impart a depth to complement the creaminess of milk, and mace is added to give the brew a beautiful, rich colour. Heighten your energy to this spicy and addictive Altitude Chai.
