Esha Chhabra and Smita Satiani grew up in households where chai was a daily ritual, however it was unlike the chai latte served at cafes today. Instead, it’s a simple combination of black tea and ginger or black tea and cardamom. This is Alaya's take on a classic -- a robust, biodynamic CTC (Crush Tear Curl) Assam black tea blended with organic ginger that is grown in the gardens of the women who pluck our tea.

Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 3 cups of chai


Step 1: Boil water

Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a medium-sized pot. Tip: hard water can make tea taste overly bitter. If you can, use purified or filtered water for your chai.

Step 2: Add spices

Add three cardamom pods, crushed. Add optional cloves, crushed and/or cinnamon stick.

Step 3: Add Assam Black + Ginger

Add 2 heaped teaspoons of Assam Black Tea + Ginger to pot, and stir. Let tea steep for 3-4 minutes.

Step 4: Add milk

Add one cup milk (whole milk or oat milk works well), and an optional 1-2 teaspoons sugar, depending on your preference of sweetener. 

Step 5: Simmer, strain and enjoy

Let chai simmer and froth for another two minutes, then strain out the tea leaves and spices and pour into a cup. Enjoy with a salty or sweet snack (our favorites include cardamom cookies or pakoras)  

Step 6: Brew another cup

Want another cup? Our tea leaves are strong enough to brew a second cup. Simply add water, milk and sugar to the existing brewed tea leaves and spices, and repeat from step five.
