Tea Masala is a famous traditional drink in Nepal and other parts of southern Asia and is often referred to as chai tea, which usually consists of a mix of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, and bay leaves steeped with milk, water, sugar, and black tea leaves.
Our Tea Masala is sourced from the foothills of Himalayan Nepal and provides a convenient pre-mixed blend of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and bayleaf that can be used in your favorite recipe.
