To enhance your tea drinking experience
CTC stands for "Crush, Tear, Curl," which is a method of processing tea leaves. In CTC tea production, the tea leaves are mechanically crushed, torn, and curled into small pellets. This method is commonly used for black tea production and is known for producing strong, robust, and full-bodied tea with a brisk flavor. CTC tea is favored in all regions of India, especially for making Masala Chais.
Masala Chai is a popular Indian beverage made by brewing strong black tea (often CTC tea) with a blend of aromatic spices and herbs. The spices typically include ingredients like cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and black pepper. Milk and sweeteners such as sugar or honey are often added to create a rich and flavorful tea that is both spicy and sweet.
Masala Chai is not only a delicious and comforting beverage but also offers potential health benefits. The spices in Masala Chai, such as ginger, black pepper and cloves, have anti-inflammatory and digestive properties. Additionally, the tea itself contains antioxidants and can provide a mild energy boost due to its caffeine content. It's often enjoyed for its warming and soothing qualities.
No, our Masala Chais contains caffeine. It is primarily made from black CTC tea, which naturally contains caffeine. If you're seeking a caffeine-free option, we also offer herbal blends in our tea collection. These caffeine-free alternatives provide the same aromatic richness without the stimulating effects of caffeine.
Making the perfect cup of Masala Chai is a delightful process. Start by adding one or two teaspoons of our tea to boiling water. Simmer it on low heat, add milk and sweeteners to your preference, and allow the flavors to meld for a few minutes. You can find detailed brewing instructions on our website in the Steeping Notes section. Our recommended boiling method ensures that you experience the full depth of flavor and aroma in every cup.
While almost all our Chais are crafted to be allergen-free, one of the blends - Jaipur Masala Chai contains a specific allergen such as almond. We recommend checking the ingredient section or our website for detailed allergen information before making your selection. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities.
We distinguish ourselves by delivering fresh tea directly from the tea estates to you, bypassing multiple middlemen and reducing delivery time from 6 months to 7 days. While you can find lower-priced teas online, our commitment to freshness is central to our pricing. Sourcing directly ensures that each cup of our Masala Chai offers an authentic and aromatic experience, reflecting the true essence of the tea and spices. Quality, freshness, and a superior tea-drinking experience are our priorities, which may lead to a slightly higher price compared to other brands.
At Teabox, we use CTC grades, specifically a mix of BP (Broken Pekoe) and BP1 (Broken Pekoe 1), which are smaller grains. The choice of these smaller grain size is deliberate and plays a crucial role in enhancing the qualities of our tea.The smaller grain size allows for a quicker and more robust infusion of flavors, making it ideal for making Masala Chai, where the bold and spicy notes need to shine through. It's this attention to detail in the selection of CTC grades and grain size that sets our chais apart, providing a superior tea-drinking experience that captures the essence of authentic Masala Chai.
Yes, freshness is essential when it comes to tea, including Masala Chai. Freshness ensures that the tea leaves and spices maintain their flavor and aroma. Stale tea can taste dull and lose its characteristic notes. At Teabox, our commitment to freshness means that you can enjoy the full, authentic flavors of Masala Chais, as we source teas directly from the origin and maintain rigorous quality control to preserve freshness.
To ensure that your chai retains its exceptional freshness and flavor, we recommend storing it in an airtight container. Place the container in a cool, dry location, away from direct sunlight. This will protect the tea from moisture, light, and strong odors, all of which can compromise the quality of your tea. Proper storage is key to preserving the authentic taste of our Masala Chais.
Yes, we understand that our customers have diverse preferences. To cater to your convenience, we currently offer 1, 3 & 5 Pack options for all our Chais. Additionally, we offer subscriptions on all the varieties. Subscriptions provide you with the flexibility to receive fresh tea regularly, ensuring that you never run out of your favorite blend. You can explore these options on our website and choose the one that suits your needs best.
