Assam tea is often produced via the CTC (crush, tear, curl) method of processing black tea. It boosts the tea’s antioxidant content, adding multiple health benefits to the tea itself. This is exactly how our Assam Tiger Chai is produced!
Built on a black tea CTC foundation, our Assam Tiger Chai tea is full of masala spices that come together to produce a very flavourful blend. The sweetness of the cinnamon pieces and fennel seeds complement the aromatic cardamom and cloves perfectly, creating a chai tea that both smells and tastes amazing.
The tea can be enjoyed as it is because the flavours stand alone perfectly. Alternatively, you can use this delightful, caffeinated chai as the basis of a chai tea latte. A fantastic reason to get out of bed in the morning!
Our Assam Tiger Chai tea should be steeped for five minutes in water that is 100 degrees Celsius (or 212 degrees Fahrenheit) to ensure that the sweet flavours and unique blend of spices fully merge. The strong flavour is strong enough that just 1 or 2 teaspoons per cup should suffice.
This sweet, fragrant tea has a robust level of caffeine, making it ideal for kickstarting the day. Pour out a clean cup of Assam Tiger Chai tea for a fresh, spicy awakening and you’ll be ready to pounce on anything that life throws at you.
