On almost every street corner in India you will find somebody selling hot spicy tea, they are locally known as chai wallahs . For many Indians stopping for a chai is an important part of their daily routine. In each of these kiosks, the chai wallah will create an atmosphere conducive for discussion, sharing and tasting.

Inspired by such unforgettable moments enjoyed while being in India, we have developed our own original range of recipes to honour this culture: five spicychais, each with a unique personality.

Here's a recipe created by Gabriel Svaldi, Bristol Chai's owner, with our Arthur mix. Perfect for celebrating Halloween!
