If you’re here, that probably means you’re the lucky buyer, or recipient, of some of our Masala Chai mix – Kama Sutra Sticky Chai.
It might also mean that you’re looking for inspiration to get the best possible results. Well. Hopefully that’s what we can do.
What’s Sticky Chai then?
Chai, or more properly Masala Chai, just means “spiced tea”. It is a hot, sweet and spicy milk tea which is served all over India, most famously from carts on the street by chai wallahs, or “tea boys”.
Whilst the recipe varies from region to region, the core ingredients of the masala, or spice mix, are cardamom, clove, cinnamon and ginger. However, there are often additional spices included such as black pepper, fennel, star anise and the like.
We love India. We love Masala Chai.
We’ve had difficulty finding anything in the UK that compares to it, so we made our own!
What’s the “Sticky” all about?
Our ‘Chai’ is blended with honey, making it, you’ve guessed it, sticky. This gives sweetness without the need for additional sugar and as well as acting as a presertative, also has the added health benefits from this wonderful, all-natural ingredient”.
Please note, honey can crystallise, especially when stored at low temperatures, which might mean your sticky chai hardens. Fear not! It may not look as pretty but it is completely fine and sure still tastes as pretty!
Have it your way…
The beauty of our chai mix though is that, you can make it your way! If you like it the traditional way, great! Grab a pan and let’s go. If you like the modern chai style then go the steeping option. If you like it more subtle like you might find a chai latte in a cafe, grab a milk frother.
There’s no “right” or “wrong” way to make Kama Sutra Sticky Chai; as we always like to say, the best way to make tea is how you like it.
But here are a few method suggestions:
