I chanced upon this site from a news item on economictimes. And I wanted to try them out. Ordered an Earl Grey masala chai and an Assam Darjeeling mix tea. I was itching to open and try out the tea once the package arrived.
Me and my family were quite happy with the smell of the tea the moment we opened the zip-lock pack. The tea tasted very nice as well. My father loved the subtle masala taste of this tea...tastes good with milk.
we got two free samples along with the order...will post a bigger review after i taste all the samples. Will recommend this site to my brother in the USA. Keep up the good brewing :)

Nose at times of burnt pine tar, at certain times of oranges in bloom
Wah Vahdam, Wah! A pure sensational Masala Chai blend which would never put you to regret. The blend of CTC and spices is done almost perfect. Bold in body, superb liqueur color and a heady aroma of the spice blend, particularly of cloves and cardamom. Let the tea steep in excess of 5 minutes, pouring in water that begins to just boil. The blender/s has woven magic out of this spice-tea mix, indeed a clued guy has stirred it up. My suggestion for the blend is to use a lesser percentage of cloves and elaichi, a slight increase of cinnamon and pepper while holding the bergamot oil spray steady. Cloves should definitely be reduced, as the after-taste is of cloves instead of cinnamon. At times the tea has a nose of burnt pine tar, at times of oranges in bloom. Drink this chai in the early morning days and slowly wind yourself up.
