Bollywood Theater Masala Chai Loose Leaf Tea

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. 

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. 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.

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

So comforting!

This Chai mix is warm and rich. I'm happy there was a tip to maybe increase sweetener if it is a little strong for your palette. It worked and I love it!

Easily my favorite Chai

Fall is the best season, and there's nothing better than enjoying a cup of chai with a bit of cream or half and half. After years of testing various loose leaf chai teas, I have found the one I love the most. I look forward to getting my order every year. It's the perfect cup of comfort and warmth.

Best Masala Chai EVER

My friend recommended this tea to me and in turn I have recommended it to a dozen others. It’s hard to find a true, fragrant and robust chai. This is the real deal and it’s incredible. It is seconded to none!
