1 Lb. Bollywood Theater Masala Chai Gift Bag

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.

Bollywood Theater is a wildly popular Indian street food eatery with two locations in Portland, Oregon. Both are just a rickshaw ride from downtown.

BEST CHAI EVER!

With COVID/wfh life, I stopped buying chai at cafes. I decided to try brewing it at home. Came across Reluctant Trading’s Masala Chai and was super impressed. Super easy to make on the stovetop and you get that whiff of spices! I’m all about a nice spicy chai and this was one where the spices hit the back of your throat (in a good way - I swear!). Will definitely keep this replenished in my pantry!
