A perfect mix of intense aromas

Chai releases surprising and intensely spicy flavours that will instantly whisk your palate away to Mother India. Cardamom adds a lemony yet peppery hint, ginger is spicy yet mild, with the added sweetness of cinnamon and the bitterness of clove, whilst long pepper provides this mix with hot woody notes. The perfect mix.


Chai, spicy Indian tea

This aromatic drink is made from a decoction of carefully selected and well-balanced spices. It’s not only refreshing it’s also good for the mind and body. Terre Exotique’s classic chai is made from the usual chai spices: Ceylon cinnamon, ginger, green cardamom and clove. However, we have replaced the traditional black pepper with the more aromatic long Cambodian pepper.


Carefully selected spices

Cinnamon is considered an all-round remedy (eases digestion, tones the cardiac muscles and relieves joint pains and toothache).

Ginger is also a widely used remedy. As well as all the above-mentioned benefits, it’s also a stimulant, namely a mental stimulant.

Green cardamom, from the same botanical family as ginger, is also beneficial for digestion and circulation and is said to bring joy and clarity to the mind.

Cloves are a very warming spice perfect for breathing problems. Cambodian long pepper acts as a detox for the digestive system.


Chai, masala chai, or masala tea, are an institution in India


Where does Chai come from?

Chai, or masala chai, or masala tea, has become an institution in India. Every contract is negotiated, every deal sealed, every friendship started over a cup of chai. Chai is the Hindi word in Indian used for tea. More often than not it’s a very sweet black tea. It is also called “masala chai”, as the word “masala” means a mix of spices using ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, star aniseed, fennel, clove, coriander, nutmeg, cumin and chilli pepper. The traditional chai recipe is over 5,000 years old and was first used for medicinal purposes in Ayurvedic treatments. In the 19th century, when the British brought this recipe back from India, chai became ever more popular in Great Britain and thereafter all throughout Europe.
