The atmosphere and flavour of India come across strongly in chai, the tea spiced with cinnamon, black pepper, cloves, ginger and green cardamom seeds.
The secret of its excellence lies in the high quality of the tea leaves, which include several varieties of Ceylon, one of the finest black teas. In addition, Ravasio’s chai blend benefits from a carefully balanced equilibrium, enhanced yet further by the painstaking selection of spices.
Stimulating and energy-giving, it should be brewed for five minutes and then enjoyed just as it comes. It is most definitely worth trying the traditional Indian preparation, whereby the mix of tea and spices is allowed to simmer for some considerable time in sugared milk, resulting in a fragrant beverage with a very special flavour.
