New Assam Chai

£4.50£20.00

A blend of second flush Assam tea from Pallab Nath who grows and processes his own leaf, and spices (dried ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and clove) grown and harvested by hand by small farmers at the Sahyadri Co-Operative in Kerala.

We blend the teas and spices ourselves to create a warming, aromatic tea that is just as good taken black as with milk. Even better, stew the tea over a low heat in milk and sweeten with sugar or honey to make a rich, comforting chai drink.
