Himalayan Masala is an aromatic blended black tea with added ingredients here inspired by traditional spices used in Nepal. Its rich liquor has notes of cinnamon, ginger, and malt, with hints of clove and cardamom. It is the perfect go-to tea to enjoy throughout the day and for making hot and iced lattes, spiced tea cookies.
One teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 1 minute, then steep tea 3 - 4 minutes.
Whilst we still cannot travel to Nepal or have orders sent from Nepal direct to Australia this has been a welcome find ordering through Nepali Tea Traders. Thank you very much.

Hi Jessica - We are so happy that you found Himalayan Masala tea to enjoy with milk. Welcome to NTT community and thank you for your feedback. We truly appreciate it.
This is a very delicious masala tea. Mmmmm a cup of this makes me smile and feel cozy. You can taste all the various ingredients and loose tea gives you the flexibility to make it as strong as you like. Cheers!
This was extremely a good tea. If you are looking something to comfort you then you must go for it. You can smell the spices as you drink but the main taste is tea. I'll be ordering this again.
This is a different chai! Usually, when I think of a chai, I think of a very strong black tea base with spices that are equally as strong to create a robust, full-flavored cuppa that is ideal as a latte. This isn’t that chai. That’s not to say that I dislike it. On the contrary, I’m actually quite enjoying this Himalayan Masala Spiced Tea from Nepali Tea Traders! It’s different, sure, but, I like the warm, cozy flavor of this tea. It’s a lovely tea to enjoy on a chilly afternoon – like today! The black tea base is lighter than I’m used to in a chai – but it’s smooth and crisp. I’d categorize this as a medium-bodied tea, it’s a little crisper, and a little lighter than an Assam or a Nilgiri which are the teas most often used as a base for a chai. This base is more reminiscent of a Darjeeling, but perhaps a little more substantial. It has some lovely fruit notes to it that meld beautifully with the warm spices. The spices here are consistent with the body of the tea – that is to say that the spices aren’t overpowering the tea base. Instead, since this is a slightly lighter bodied tea, the spices are not as strong. I get gentle notes of cardamom, ginger, cloves and cinnamon. It’s a cozy, comforting combination of flavors that is reminiscent of a spice cookie. A really lovely chai – this is one I’d recommend to those who tend to shy away from chai blends because they find them to be too spicy. A really delightful tea.
