Bombay Chai

Bombay Chai tea with a melange of spicy notes conjures the steamy, aromatic delights of an Indian street market. Black tea leaves with subtle hints of pepper, orange, cinnamon, cardamom, and clove make up our chai, the Indian word for tea. Bombay Chai tea is delicious when brewed fresh and blended with heated milk and sugar to taste.

Brew
Preparing the perfect cup of tea is a process to be savored. Watch how the traditional elements harmoniously come together to make the perfect cup and enjoy the liberation of pure tea goodness.

This is what we call the Mighty Leaf signature multi-sensory ("sensory melange") tea experience. Come share with us and learn how to get infused.

Water
The quality of tea is affected by the quality of water used to prepare it. Using filtered or bottled water is best. If possible, avoid brewing tea with tap, distilled or mineral water. Never over-boil water, as it results in flat-tasting tea.

Fire
1) Heat filtered or bottled water to a rolling boil or to 205 F. 2) While the water is heating pour hot water into your teapot and cups, let sit and then drain completely. A warm teapot will maintain the requisite temperature for superior tasting tea.

Whole Leaf Tea
Slowly open up our specially created, sensually handcrafted tea pouch and enjoy the aroma of fresh whole tea leaves. Use one Mighty Leaf tea pouch per cup.

Infusion Time
Pour water over tea pouch. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 3 - 5 minutes. Watch how the leaves within the pouch have room to gracefully unfurl in your cup, creating a rich and flavorful infusion and a superior tasting tea.

Savor the Leaf
Sip your cup and rediscover the pleasure of the way tea was naturally meant to be. This is the magic of Mighty Leaf.
