Introducing Chai Walli's August 2021 product of the month which is our newest product formulated by Uppma Virdi, founder of Chai Walli.
The Classic Punjabi Cha* blend is the newest addition to the Chai Walli range. This masala cha blend is Uppma's go to blend when she needs something to lift her and remind her of home. The Classic Punjabi Cha is made up of three simple ingredients: fennel seeds, cardamom and organic fair trade Assamese black tea (did we mention it's single origin as well?).
Although we've kept this blend simple, as with all our blends, our ingredients are all natural and high grade. We handcraft all our products in Australia to produce authentic and artisan blends.
*Cha is the Punjabi term of tea, where as Chai is the Hindi term for tea. We're using the term cha here to showcase the heritage of this masala cha blend.
Conceived on: This blend would have been conceived across India when masala cha would have gained popularity around the early 1800s.
Date of birth: Rebirthed by Uppma in 2013
