These days, it’s not uncommon to hear a hodgepodge of chai names at your local coffee shop. “Chai tea,” “chai tea latte,” and “masala chai” are often used interchangeably by innocent consumers.
But chai actually means tea in Hindi, and latte actually means milk in Italian--so if you’re ordering a “Masala chai tea latte,” you’re really ordering a Masala tea tea milk.
Confused? Don’t worry—because the taste of Masala chai never leaves you confused.
Masala chai is the harmonic blend of spicy-sweet, milky goodness. Diehard drinkers will tell you they know the “best recipe” because they discovered it in a book, or it was handed down through generations of perfecting.
We at Nepali Tea Traders are no different: We’ll tell you we know the best recipe because we’re consumed a lot of masala chai. And as a company rooted in Nepalese culture (where masala chai reigns), we’re pretty confident with our recommendation.
