From master tea artisans, Tea Forte, comes Bombay Chai black tea, a culinary mandala of exotic flavors and imperial spices. At its heart, this full-bodied tea uses black tea leaves picked from the Nilgiri “Blue Mountains” region, not far from India’s most famous tea regions, Darjeeling and Assam. These leaves are dried and mixed with spices originating from India, China and Indonesia, including cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper and star anise. These lend the tea a distinctly spicy, peppery taste, while the addition of vanilla gives it a slightly sweet aftertaste that follows every sip. Combined with milk or honey, it makes for a wonderful breakfast or dessert tea, especially in winter.
Tea Forte presents this tea in its own unique invention: pyramid-shaped silken infusers, or tea bags, which are made using recyclable, gluten-free PET fibers with no chemicals or adhesives. These spiced tea infusers are specially designed to let the leaves dance and radiate with flavors when steepened in water.
Bombay Chai tea bags are a creation of Tea Forte. This company began in Massachusetts in 2003, with a highly stylized product line based on traditional Japanese tea drinking ceremonies, intended to “elevate a cup of tea into an extraordinary experience for all your senses.” Today, they present an unparalleled variety of handcrafted teas and tea accessories with sumptuously decorated packaging. Enjoyed in over 35 countries, their products can be found in the most prestigious restaurants, hotels, resorts and luxury retailers, making them ultimate ambassadors of the tea-drinking experience.
