The base of this Tea Forté Chai tea is black tea from the Nilgiri region in South India. Nilgiri literally means ‘blue hill'. Many waterfalls, flowering plant species and high mountains are found in the Nilgiri region, including Doddabetta Peak, the highest in the range at 8,652 ft. The Nilgiri Hills are part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, which is part of the protected bio-reserves in India.

We strongly recommend milk and honey to taste with our Bombay Chai. For a richer, milkier drink, heat your milk before adding it and use up to 1 part milk for every 2 parts water. Prepared in this fashion, our Chai is a great breakfast tea, particularly in winter.
