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.

“I like to imagine people taking the ingredients I provide as a starting point and adding their own special twist that makes it uniquely theirs.”

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.”

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!

Bought this for my son who loves Chai tea. I also bought the herbal set for my niece. The herbal set came with satchels, which this one did not and this one had 6 jars of already made tea (like earl gray), so not as much pure ingredients. Did not like it as much as herbal. Maybe if I had not gotten both, I would not be able to compare, and it would have been fine.

Comments about UncommonGoods Chai Tea Kit:

When I saw this item on your website I bought it without a second thought. My best friends wedding is coming up and I knew it would be the perfect gift for her bridal shower. The box came and it smelled AMAZING, I knew right off that the ingredients were great quality. My friend has now called me twice (the shower was last weekend) to tell me how amazing the tea is, and I'm going by this weekend to try it for myself. Great Product.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Chai Tea Kit:

    I've given this Chai Tea Kit as a birthday gift, a Christmas gift, hostess gift, and I've also purchased it for myself after hearing how much my recipients loved it! It has several types of loose tea along with some fresh and fragrant spices like star anise, whole cloves, and cinnamon. The directions and suggestions are helpful. I usually simmer the spices in one saucepan and warm the milk in another. Sometimes I use a little honey or maple syrup to sweeten and other times a teaspoon of molasses fits the bill. But no matter how you make it, it's always absolutely delicious!

    This makes a wonderful tea. It would be nice to be able to purchase the individual items when they run out. Like the tea, peppercorn, cloves, etc. Rather than buy the whole kit.
