flavour profile: specially blended for rapid brewing & the ultimate chai taste
ingredients: rich black tea & aromatic spices of ginger root, cinnamon bark, cardamom, anise seed, clove, allspice
Our Tea Master has created Express Chai to give you authentic chai taste, but with a shorter brewing time. We love traditionally brewed chai tea, but it can take added steeping time to bring out the full flavour of the black tea & spices against the creamy milk. Express Chai steeps more quickly than traditional chai tea, enabling you to make a delicious cup of your favourite drink faster!
As always, we start with high quality loose black tea & spices, but the ingredients are specially cut & cured, which allows them to release flavour more quickly. You may notice that there are some smaller tea leaves & pieces in this tea than is usual for Silk Road Teas, & it's in order to assist with rapid infusion.
