14 Indian tea brands that promise the perfect cup of aromatic masala chai

If masala chai is what gets you going throughout the day, we’ve curated some of the best Indian tea brands that offer the perfect tea blends – from instant premixes to whole leaf teas – for your next sip.

Travel anywhere in India and you’ll find some version of one of India’s favourite beverages – tea. Be it a steaming cup of kadak masala chai sipped on a beautiful monsoon afternoon by the roadside, or fine green teas and tisanes sipped in the comfort of your home, the beverage has a place in every household and social situation.

Introduced to Indians by the British, the beverage is now a household and conversation staple that has been consumed for centuries – from super long meetings in office and discussions on projects in college to a fun evening with friends or a romantic date with your partner. It has a special place in our hearts, and capturing that, several Indian tea brands have launched masala chai blends and premixes, with hopes of becoming your favourite cuppa in no time.

A few brands offer a refreshing blend of whole spices infused with tea leaves, while some others are flavourful premixes that you can carry with you on your travels and mix with hot water to create a cup that has optimal flavour and texture. So, in case you’re looking for the perfect masala chai blend, check out these Indian tea brands below!
