A totally organic mix of Masala spiced tea that will take you away to India.
It’s undeniable: loose leaf chai holds the spotlight among young and new tea-drinkers. A sharp,distinct, rich blend whose warmth practically leaps out of the cup and hugs the drinker, chai is a bold but accessible tea. Much like India Pale Ales in the brewing world, the go-to drink bridging connoisseurs and casual drinkers is a distinctly spiced yet sophisticated blend: chai. It’s instantly recognizable (layered warmth filtering through milky cardamom) yet easily varied.
And what variety there is.
Each sip of this carefully-layered chai reveals different roles for each spice to play. Clove and cinnamon each bring uniquely astringent sweetness, with the first an ineffable and lingering flavor that cleanses the palate for what’s next. Cardamom and ginger offer distinctly eastern richness, sharpening and refining the base (black) leaf’s consistent clear taste and reminding that for centuries; spice was the stable currency of the international trade world.
Heaven Sent Chai builds a complex flavor on top of the classic chai formula, with a full flavor pool of chai-associated spices. Every note is present here with just mouth-watering balance: clove, cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper on top of the classic cardamom-infused black tea base. Sweet heat is the name of the game here: tangy black tea given body by these sweet, earthy spices.
Chai, like so many of the world’s great dishes, is a working-class drink that is nonetheless a lush, cultivated flavor collection. It can be appreciated. It can also simply be enjoyed. This particular blend stands on its own as a warming black tea, and can also be brewed with milk for the “true chai” experience. Heaven Sent chai is therefore an excellent tea for introducing chai to the adventurous drinker’s roster, or for fulfilling the chai lover’s range of tastes in one elegant cup.

This tea is my absolute favorite. It's delicious and perfect for those cold winter nights.
I love chai teas, and have tried many brands. This chai has been my favorite. I like it so much I ordered 1/2 pound to be sure I don’t run out! It has a full, rich flavor, and the combination of spices is exactly to my taste
I was very excited when my tea arrived, I’ve had a lot of loose leaf teas and I’ve never had such an amazing and potent smell come from a bag when I opened it
As I started to go from tea bags to loose tea, I experimented with many different brands. I live in a very rural area and I know of no place that sells loose tea so I turned to the internet to see what's out there. The first one I tried was your Heaven Sent chai After that, I tried many more brands and when I tasted them I realized that I lucked out on my first try with this exceptional, deliciously spiced chai. I do order some tea offered by other vendors on occasion, and they are good of course, but yours is by superior by far. Also, I really love to get the samples, too. Thanks for making such high quality, delicious tea.
I like the flavour of Heaven Sent chai, but wanted just a bit more vanilla. I came up with the inspired (if I do say so myself!) idea of blending the two. For me, they’re the perfect mix: spicey and yet smooth.
