Sip of India

In India, "chai wallahs" are tea vendors who set up shop along sidewalks and street corners. They take pride in their tea, often adding unique bits of spices to create a signature blend. Gathered from exotic markets, this beautiful collection of organic and fair-trade spices creates authentic chai flavor and a taste of India from your own home. Feel your body and spirit relax as you steep in the flavors of star anise, whole cardamom pods, whole cloves, Ceylon cinnamon, and Ceylon tea. A detailed recipe is included for novice chai brewers, or you can create your own signature mix. Simply mix and match to find your perfect combination, and you'll be on your way to discovering your inner chai wallah. Each pot of tea yields a serving for two. Assembled by Julie Pedersen in Montreal, Canada.

Anyone who has the pleasure of meeting Julie Pedersen can expect some deep culinary conversation. “I’m always looking for new ideas, and some of the best come from engaging people in conversation and listening to them talk about food and their memories associated with it,” says the Canadian artist. When she needs further inspiration, “I usually turn to my cookbook library,” she shares. A food lover and designer with a background in marketing and advertising, Julie considers her creative efforts validated when a customer connects with one of her products: “I once had a person tell me that when they opened up a chai kit, the aroma reminded them so much of the chai they used to drink in India that it brought tears to their eyes.”

Comments about UncommonGoods Chai Tea Kit:

Very beautifully done set. Arrives in a nice metal box and all the tins are sealed with a label above them on the lid to tell you what is what. Very strong scent after taking it out of the package. Makes awesome tea. Totally neat gift for that person in your life that loves chai tea!

      This is a great gift for a tea lover. It's very interesting to see and smell the different herbs and every tea blend that you make is a whole new experience. Was worried about the quality of the herbs rather than packaging. No worries, all of it is of good quality.

          I love tea and drink a lot daily. My son gave me this kit for Christmas. Although I usually just use bags of my favorite brand at the time, I tried the recipe included and was sold on it. So good, and really not difficult at all. Well worth the brief time it takes to make it.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Chai Tea Kit:

              While christmas shopping, I splurged on buying this kit for myself. I just used it for the first time and it resulted in the BEST cup of chai tea ever! I followed the recipe exactly per the card (no pepper) bc i figure I can experiment more with later batches.... and I am amazed how easy it is to get such great flavor! Next time I intend to use honey instead of white sugar though, just my personal preference. I intend to purchase good quality cinnamon, anise, cardamon, etc, when the kit runs out and make brewing this a Sunday afternoon tradition for the entire year!! This kit was a great introduction to how to use the spice aisle with loose tea, so even though it is pricy for the size, the convenience of buying all at once and learning how to use it makes the kit well worth it!

              I bought this for my wife who is a huge Chai fan (she's a regular at Starbucks). My wife was really happy with the presentation the kit came in, lots of nice quality tins, good layout, smelled wonderful. She then made us both a cup of Chai and I was very impressed with the quality. We actually were so happy with the included recipe/ingredients, we went to our local spice store and stocked up on them.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Chai Tea Kit:

              This tea set was a gift for a friend of mine who absolutely loves tea. He buys tea from authentic Chinese and Indian spice places and knows good tea from bad tea much more than I do. I got him this tea set for Christmas and quickly received texts saying: "Aaah tea!!!" and, "This is so cool! I love blending tea!!" and later, once he had had some time to take a closer look, he explained to me why each thing in the tea set was so great. This is CEYLON CINNAMON! He explained to me that Ceylon cinnamon is hard to find because it is so much better than the cinnamon usually used in the United States. "Compared to Ceylon cinnamon, our cinnamon is disgusting." Although he is sometimes hard to read, I truly believe that this gift was a success. Thanks :)
