- chai & coffee
Make no mistake, 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.

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. The 3 oz package makes about 10 cups. The 8 oz tube makes about 25. And the pound size makes about 50. Add sugar to taste. If you're looking to make individual cups, check out our Stainless Steel Brew Basket.
Don't miss our other Bollywood Theater Masalas too. We also sell an Indian Sipper Gift Set of Bollywood Masala Chai and our Monsoon Moon Indian Whole Bean Coffee.

Going to buy more!And will be trying other chai flavors. The mesh basket works well for one cup. :)
I had masala chai in India when I was younger, and I've never found anything as good. I was so often disappointed by the sugary attempt at an approximation that I stopped trying to find one as delicious in the states. That is why I purchased this tea a few years ago but didn't drink it until recently. I just purchased more. It is delicious! The depth and balance is wonderful. Now I enjoy it daily with jaggery sweetener from Diaspora. At the very least it is the one thing each day that that I make time to do intentionally and slowly. Smelling the spices as they brew on the stovetop wakes me up and puts a smile on my face.

Plato couldn’t have made a more ideal chai. Satisfying to the last sip. Buy it.
A friend gave me a container of the Bollywood masala chai. I came back and ordered the largest one. It’s a flavorful, not sweet, excellent chai. I drink chai regularly and have tasted many on road trips along the west coast, this one stands out as a favorite. Thank you!
