Tea Type: Chai (Black Tea Base)
Where To Buy: Steenbergs (Tea Merchant)
Steenbergs Organic Fairtrade Black Chai Tea is our simplified version of the Indian spicy, chai teas and is based on the quick & easy recipe we love to make for ourselves on a cold, blustery day, especially if we’ve got soaked on a walk. Steenbergs Organic Black Chai Tea is so warming and the organic spices seem to lift the strong organic black tea that we use as a base.
At Steenbergs Organic, we hand blend the organic spices to Axel Steenberg’s own unique recipe in Steenbergs Tea Factory in Ripon in North Yorkshire. Steenbergs uses sweeter organic spices to flavour this organic chai tea blend – organic cloves , organic cinnamon and organic cardamom . These organic spices are cut to a smaller size – called tea bag cut – and hand blended in small batches with a GBOP organic tea that’s been high grown on the POABS Tea Estates in Southern India. POABS is a dreamy place high in the hills (really mountains to us English), where the water comes fresh from the mountain peak into the tea estate. The other side of the hill is a nature reserve, so it’s a really, truly pure place – full of spirit.
Brewing tip: Boil 500ml water and 500ml milk together with some sugar and 4tsp organic black chai tea for about 4 – 5 minutes, then relax and enjoy. For more details on making organic chai tea, please go to recipe for organic chai tea

I recently added Organic Black Chai from Steenbergs to “my 90’s and up” percentile on Steepster. I thought I would elaborate a little here – at Sororitea Sisters – as to why I thought this was one of the better chai’s I have tried.
If you like chewy/bakey/bready smelling black teas – like I do – and you like a little spice try this! The aroma is wonderful! The spices work terrifically, too! They aren’t overdone and this is a very enjoyable cuppa!
It’s ALWAYS a plus when it’s ORGANIC! Thumbs up there, too!
I LOVE the fact that the spices are NOT over the top or too hard to handle. This is my cuppa tea…or in this case…cuppa chai! Like it was made…JUST for me and my palate! Thanks Steenbergs!
