Heritage Masala Chai Tea
This chai is a collaboration of small growers in the Assam region, which has typically been dominated by large plantations. Blended in Assam, it uses local, small-scale black tea, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, bay leaf. It is fragrant with sweet spices, naturally sweet, with a smooth round texture and balanced bitterness.
This tea comes from Assam, a large tea-producing region in Northeastern India. It is a low-lying area with tropical, humid climate and rich clay soils fed by monsoon rains. The region has long been dominated by tea plantations that produce mostly low-grade style tea for tea bags, but growers like the partners at Heritage Tea are changing that by empowering small, local farmers. All ingredients in this chai are sourced from their small farmer network.
