Chai is such an integral part of Indian culture that it is virtually impossible to avoid when traveling through any part of the Indian sub-continent. Even when fresh cold drinking water cannot be found, you will inevitably encounter a chai-wallah, or chai seller, yelling out, “chayee! chayee!” While riding the rails in India, the call of the chai wallah can be heard at every stop proffering their delicious hot drink. It is not uncommon for a chai-wallah to board a train in the middle of the night and wake up passengers to sell chai. The chai arrives in small clay cups that customers throw from the train windows when finished!

Indian chai is typically made using a rich black tea, usually an Assam, and brewing it in heavy milk with cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper. The drink produces a warm soothing effect and engenders a wonderfully calming effect on the body. We’ve taken the soothing aspect of this blend one step further and added a dash of vanilla. This addition of vanilla adds a hint of creaminess to this tea – a fantastic addition. Brew this tea piping hot and add some sugar to help open up the exotic flavour of the spicy blend that makes up this tea. Just try and stop yourself after one cup!

Hot Tea:
Put 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9 oz (200-260 mL) of water in the teapot. Pour freshly boiled water over tea. Steep 5-10 minutes. Add milk and sugar to taste.

Iced Tea:
Makes 1 litre: Put 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose tea into teapot. Pour 1 1/4 cup (315 mL) of boiling water on tea. Steep 5 minutes. Quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water. Pour into pitcher straining tea. Add ice, top-up with cold water, garnish and sweeten to taste.
