All About

Masala Chai

ABOUT MASALA CHAI

The traditional way of brewing tea or ‘chai’ in India is to add a melange of locally available spices to black tea and to brew them together with milk, water, and a sweetener, usually sugar or molasses. It’s an all-weather, all-occasion drink and is mostly associated with being a ‘welcome’ drink in every Indian household. It is slowly finding its way beyond the subcontinent and is gaining popularity across the world.

Motley Brew’s version of the traditional tea is to make the base tea from amongst the very best of Indian produce. Strong, robust, full-bodied second flush Assam teas and blended with whole spices such as ginger, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, some rose petals, and a dash of our own ‘secret’ sauce to enhance but not overpower the high-quality base tea.

The comforting warmth of the spices and the tea make it an instantly restorative drink. The many traditional spices are known to reduce inflammation and boost Immunity, especially during these Covid times, in addition to other health benefits like aiding digestion.

STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS
CHAI LATTE (MILK TEA)
  1. Bring unfiltered water to a gentle boil to approximately 90 deg. Celsius (208 deg. Fah.).
  2. Steep tea in a ratio 1 heaped tsp. tea (2.5 – 3 gms. approx.) per cup for about a minute and then add milk in the ratio of 1 part milk to 3 parts water, if a thicker brew is desired, increase the milk.
  3. Let it simmer on boil for 3 to 5 minutes depending on a personal choice of strength. Rest it to cool a little and extract maximum flavour. Add a sweetener to taste.
  4. By applying the principles of molecular gastronomy, the reaction between tea and milk protein which causes coagulation can be prevented by first brewing the tea alone then adding milk.
  5. Takes very well to Nut milks for vegans.
  6. CAN BE BREWED WITHOUT MILK TOO AND SWEETENED TO TASTE.

ENHANCE THE FLAVOUR
  • Brewed best with milk, for vegans, this tea takes well when brewed with nut milks too.
  • Add a pinch of saffron, turmeric, and some black pepper if desired to add to the warmth and health.

 

Suggested Food Pairing

  • An anytime tea, especially after a hearty meal.
  • Fried Indian snacks go well too.

    I recently enjoyed a wonderful tea that not only tasted amazing but also made the whole experience special. The process was easy. The website made it easy to buy, and they kept me updated about my order. When I received the beautifully packaged box, I knew something great was inside. When I brewed the tea, its wonderful smell filled the room, and even others noticed it. The first sip was fantastic – a mix of different flavours that blended well and tasted really good. From buying to drinking, this tea has made me appreciate Motley Brew even more, and I’m excited to try their other flavours too.
