Tea Talk & Tasting with Experience Tea

August 11th 6:30-7:00

Chai means tea!  Masala chai (spice blended tea) is popular here in the west, but most Americans buy it pre-blended from the grocery store whereas Indian people typically blend their own at home.  How did this delicious blend of black tea and spices become so popular in India and what typically goes into this masala spice blend?

Roberta, owner of Experience Tea Studio here in Issaquah, will give an overview of the history of tea in China and India and blend and steep some masala chai for tasting.
