1 Lb. Bollywood Theater Masala Chai Gift Bag

16oz Tube

Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store"

Make gift giving easy with a 1 lb. tube of our signature Bollywood Theater Masala Chai in a textile, playfully illustrated gift bag. 

By the way, this is not the weak, boring chai you find on supermarket shelves. Our Bollywood Theater Masala Chai is as close as you can get to the stuff served by the Chai Wallahs in the streets of Delhi. 

Featured in Bon Appetit's "The Best Chai You Can Buy" and an editor's choice at Food & Wine

This is an authentic, rich and robust Masala Chai blend featuring the freshest Indian Assam Black Tea, Green Cardamom, Cloves, Black Pepper and Ginger (plus more) we could find. We worked with Bollywood Theater's Chef Troy MacLarty, to put together the same blend he serves in his award-winning, third-eye opening restaurants. 

My partner on the ground in India, Mr. Divakar, travels from farm to farm, estate to estate, cherry-picking the freshest spices just for us. He ships them to us in small-batches, so things remain crazy fresh. You'll understand what I'm talking about the second you tear open a bag. 

Delicious served hot or on ice. Makes about 50 cups. Add sugar to taste. 

We also sell an Indian Sipper Gift Set of Bollywood Masala Chai and our Monsoon Moon Indian Whole Bean Coffee.

The Real Thing!

Many years ago Jyoti and Mahendra Shah served me chai in their home in Philadelphia. I have had a lot of chia since, but until I tasted your chai I had not had any that was nearly as good. Your chai is perfect! Complex, rich with spices -- truly delicious! Thank you so much!

Best ever

This is absolutely the best chai I've ever had. Actually, I just received it last week, it's almost gone and I'm getting ready to order more! 🙂


Bollywood Theater Masala Chai Loose Leaf Tea

Masala Chai Tea

After reviewing online posts about this tea being one of the top ten chai teas, I thought I had to try it.

It turns out to be a delicious surprise! The loose leaf teas are very fragrant and looks homemade. You can actually all the different herbs mixed in with the tea leaves. It actually remind me of my close Indian friend, Priya, who would brew her own chai tea whenever I visited.

It is a strong tea but since I like a kick to my chai tea, I love it!! I would recommend this to anyone who
1) doesn’t have the time to make their own chai
2) wants a more flavorful chai tea than Tazo version

Masala chai loose leaf tea

I gave this as a gift and haven’t tried it myself. The recipient is a tea connoisseur and appreciated it very much. I have to say it smells great leading me to think it must taste great. So I’d say it’s a big hit and I’m quite pleased.
