I am so picky with masala chai flavors so I wasn’t expecting this one to be so great! It tastes amazing and smells so good. I will definitely be buying more tea soon!
Really lovely taste - not too strong! Very warming and not overpowered with cinnamon, will definitely buy again!
I have bought a few teas from Shibui and I find them all beautiful. I recommend all their teas.
Great taste, and it's versatile, as you can have it black, or with cold milk, like regular morning tea, or with hot milk and sugar, to taste like proper Chai. Perfect drink for colder days.
I love starting my days with a big pot of Masala Chai. I have it without milk or sugar and its delicous!
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
