Tea Review: Tea India

When I was asked to do a little review and blog post on the brand Tea India, I thought 'Finally, something I know what I'm talking about!' Tea!!

"Combining unique flavours, local tastes, and family traditions, chai transcends beyond tea. Rather, it is a tradition-an experience-and a testament to India's vast cultural plurality"

For a brief, interesting history on this brand, visit here.
Masala Chai:
Opening the box, and out pours the strong aroma of... Christmas! Cinnamon, cloves, ginger root, The spices that are in it just create such a Christmassy smell. I love it.
The Cinnamon scent is HUGE! It actually tastes extremely Cinnamon-ny too! That and the other elements, remind me of reindeer-shaped mixed spiced biscuits. Delicious. 
There is also a slight Aniseed taste, which is the Star Anise pouring it's unique flavours around. 
All these flavours mixed together create such a surprising taste, I am actually in love with this Tea. I will definitely be having cups of this around Christmas time. I also must add that the Prince likes it too, and he will only ever drink PG Tips! "I'll drink that, can I have my own cup?" Impressive!

ps. I added a sprinkle of sugar after my first cup, just to try it out, and it is just a sweeter version. So I do recommend!
Black Tea:
Or as I call it, 'Posh Tea'... Mm. It is so lovely! I am a strong-tea drinker, but with no milk added I actually cannot stand strong black tea... so I squeezed the bag halfheartedly. This tea is a smooth flavour, and is 100% Black Tea, so no fancy elements to this one. Simple and so nice.
I then added a splash of milk to try a different taste, and it too was so delightful. I am quite fussy when it comes to 'a nice cup of tea'. I am happy with a good breakfast tea and our Tea tin is always full with PG Tips. But this, well, let's just say I am now having an affair with Tea India's Black Tea. The Prince is as well!
a splash of milk is added...
Conclusion: Tea India is delightfully delicious and just so gosh darn tasty! Also, The packaging is just so simple and pretty with each flavour having different brightly coloured hues. 
Other flavours in the range is the creamy Vanilla Chai which sounds just perfect.. my next tea party is most definitely going to have this one included! And the invigorating Cardamom Chai which sounds quite intriguing. Yum. Go invite yourself to a Tea Party with these pretties.

  1. Tea India - I've been meaning to give their tea a whirl for a while and it is interesting to read such great things about their Chai as I'm a Chai obsessive and find chai bags can be really hit or miss!! I'd be so intrigued to try the Vanilla Chai and the Cardamom Chai!
