Tea was brought to Sri Lanka from China by the British in 1824. The area has the perfect conditions to produce a robust Ceylon Black Tea. In the 19th century this tea revolutionised tea drinking due to its sweet, deep, malty and complex taste.
Traditionally Spiced Chai, authentically known as Masala Chai (Spiced Tea) uses a black tea blended with spices as an Ayurvedic remedy, adjusting it to suit each persons unique constitution. It is common for each family to have their own unique recipe.
It is traditionally brewed by boiling the tea leaves, spices, milk and sugar on a stove.
