More about this Tea
A classic, spicy chai with subtle orange notes.
Shortbread – the buttery texture is a perfect match for this sweet, spicy tea.
Masala Chai was a spice infusion long before the addition of tea made it the drink enjoyed on Mumbai streets today. Some records pinpoint 1834 as the year tea came to India, so we've given this tea the number 34.
Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.

Masala Chai – Hindi for "spiced tea" – has long been served by chaiwalas as a traditional Indian street drink. Tea was only later added during the British Raj, but the essential blend of spices and hot milk remained the same.
