Design

This set includes everything you need to make Diaspora’s House Masala Chai down to your cup and tea strainer. For a single serving, bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 1-2 teaspoons of Diaspora’s Chai Masala and simmer for two minutes, allowing for the spices to infuse into the water, before adding your milk, Chota Tingrai Black Tea, and Madhur Jaggery Powder for sweetener. Bring back to a gentle boil then let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. From the saucepan, pour through your tea strainer into your Chai Kulhad. If you're serving this chai iced, save your Kulhad for another time and use 3/4 cup of water at the beginning to account for ice dilution.

The Chai

Diaspora Co. calls the chai that is part of this set their “dream blend”: rich in cardamom and ginger, sweet with fennel and cinnamon, and spicy with a touch of pepper and cloves, and a guaranteed same-year harvest to ensure the best flavor, potency, and freshness. Diaspora Co. pays an average 6x premium for these spices, which come from 40 small, regenerative family farms across India and Sri Lanka. The tea in this bundle is what Diaspora Co. calls “the tea of choice for the millions of cups of chai made every day on the subcontinent.” A stiff, medium-strength cup, it holds up beautifully to milk and spices.

It’s organically farmed on Chota Tingrai, one of the first tea estates to be owned and operated by an Indian family in independent India. Sweeten chai to taste with Diaspora Co.’s Madhur Jaggery which is clarified using traditional methods of incorporating wild okra and other herbs to remove the impurities, then stone-ground to retain its flavor.
