Kilogram Organic Masala Chai Concentrate

Doug Palas Black Tea Masala Chai

Most tea (chai) in India is served spiced with a garam masala blend, sweetened to increase the spiciness, and made with milk to give a creamier, decadent quality.

Doug Palas Asatsuyu Green Tea Japan Kagoshima Sencha

Sencha Asatsuyu

Most sencha is a blend of many different teas. Whether it is made from different cultivars, vintages, harvest seasons, steaming types, or leaf sizes, a sencha is almost always a blend several different teas. Our Sencha Asatsuyu is unusual because it is a single cultivar, medium-steamed tea that was harvested last year during the end of the May. Sencha made from a single cultivar was at one time somewhat unusual. As Western tea drinkers have learned about Japanese tea, the popularity has increased. An understanding that the cultivars and processes are as varied as the ones used in wine production...
