Rishi Masala Chai is a classic style of black tea blended with traditional spices native to South and Southeast Asia. The tea base consists of a robust and malty Assam balanced with our new, lively Orange Pekoe from northern Thailand. The Rishi recipe is unapologetically spicy yet balanced, highlighting aromatic Guatemalan cardamom, hot and citrusy ginger, and sweet cinnamon, with accents of pungent cracked black pepper and fragrant cloves. Masala Chai is designed to be directly steeped, or brewed on a stovetop simmered the traditional way in water and milk, often with a touch of sweetness. The ingredients include organic black tea, organic cinnamon, organic cardamom, organic ginger root, organic black pepper, and organic clove. Each box has 15 individually wrapped sachets, with the tea bags made of a plant-based, biodegradable material. To brew, Rishi recommends steeping each bag in 235 mL of water heated to 93C for 5 minutes.
