NINE’s Artisan Chai Masala tea blend is traditionally made following the age-old recipe of chai masala, with a twist!
In the Western regions of India, lemongrass and mint are commonly added which differs from the varying recipes found throughout India. NINE’s Chai Masala brings the Western Indian flavour directly to your home! This ready blend makes it convenient to use and eliminates the guesswork for the quantity of spices to add every time you want to enjoy a cup of tea. Spices such as ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, pepper, lemongrass, mint, star anise, all spice and rose petals are loaded with anti-oxidants and other health-enhancing compounds.
When added to chai (tea), this powerful blend of herbs and spices can enhance the immune system and fight inflammation. Though each ingredient has it’s own properties, when blended together they act synergistically to increase each other’s beneficial properties.
Most common masala chai products available on the shelves may be easy to use or have a nice flavour, yet most of these products have “natural flavours” versus having the whole, real spice. When you buy a cardamom-flavoured tea and you read the ingredients label, you often find showing black tea and “natural flavours”….not cardamom. You are paying for flavour only and not receiving the real spice and all of the spice’s intrinsic benefits.
NINE’S Chai Masala (tea spice blend) has only real spices added. Enjoy the great flavours, aromas and all the benefits of spices in your cup of tea! And for those who are not avid tea drinkers, if you desire something soothing to drink in the evening, perhaps something to help you relax you and help you sleep, chai masala infused milk or nut milk is a perfect choice.
All of the spices used are for ayurvedic purposes. Most of the spices are rich in anti-oxidants and aid digestion. The properties of each ingredient are highlighted below:
