Masala is spice and Chiyaa is tea in Nepali...

This is Joh's secret blend of spicy goodness, ground in small batches with love. The nurturing spices are bursting with immune building properties and fragrant, robust flavour. Infuse into your favourite milk (we love a Coconut/Almond blend) for a deliciously warming brew.

Better known as 'Chai' (Hindi for tea), this beverage dates back over 5000 years ago as an Ayuvedic tonic. (Ayurveda is an ancient Hindu holistic healing system) 

The heat from ginger and black pepper was believed to stimulate digestion; the antiseptic properties in cloves were thought to help relieve pain; cardamom was used as a mood elevator; cinnamon supported circulation and respiratory function; and star anise was known to freshen the breath.

It wasn't until the mid 1800's, due to the British influence in India that black tea, milk and sugar were added.

Packaged in a re-fillable glass jar with 28 servings (28 mug size serves) inside.

Ingredients : Cinnamon, Cardamom, Ginger, Black Tea, Black Pepper, Cloves & Star Aise.

Preparation instructions are on the back of the jar.
