Kashmiri Chai offers a unique twist on the classic chai tea that has been enjoyed for centuries.
Chai tea originated in India and has a rich history dating back to the early 1900s. It was first created as a way to make black tea more palatable for the British, who had colonized India and were not used to the strong, bitter taste of black tea. The addition of milk, sugar, and spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom transformed the tea into the deliciously creamy, sweet, and aromatic chai that we know and love today.
Kashmiri Chai is a delightful variation of this beloved tea. With a strong presence of cinnamon, it is the perfect choice for those who enjoy their tea on the sweeter side. This tea can be enjoyed hot with a touch of raw honey for added sweetness, or brewed in the "Sun Tea" style with cane sugar for a refreshing twist on traditional tea time.
Crafted from a blend of premium ingredients including green tea, cinnamon chips, almonds, cloves, crushed green cardamom, and cardamom seeds with almond and cinnamon flavor, this tea offers a unique and satisfying flavor profile. It's a great way to experience the rich history and delicious taste of chai tea, with a fun and flavorful twist.
Ingredients: Green tea, cinnamon chips, almonds, cloves, crushed green cardamom, and cardamom seeds with almond and cinnamon flavor
Has a wonderful aroma thats a little different from other chai teas I’ve tried. Also having a chai that uses green instead of black tea is great for anyone trying to cut back on caffeine.
Utterly Fabulous. My ordered arrived today and I opened the tin. The smell was invigorating. Just recently, my ONLY source for Kashmiri Green Chai tea changed but I didn't know and ordered my usual 8 (EIGHT) lbs of it. I cannot start a day without my Kashmiri Chai. And there I sat with 8 lbs of undrinkable sludge. I have since sampled at least nine other green chai teas, some claiming they have Kashmiri spices but all falling rather short of that true taste. And then someone suggested Simple Loose Leaf. Lo and behold, they have a tea called Kashmiri Chai and it LOOKS like my old tea. You can see cinnamon chips, cloves, cardamom pods and the almond chips. I poured my boiling water on the tea in my kettle, and leaned in for a good whiff. It was nothing short of amazing. Finally, it was ready, I poured a cup. It was the proper color and I could smell the cinnamon, I took a sip..........and it was BLISS!
There is a definite cinnamon flavor but you can taste the other ingredients and the BEST thing, there is NO bitterness. NONE. 2 hrs later, still the same pot, I poured a last cup, tasted nearly as fantabulous as the first. I'd give it six stars if I could.
