Wagh Bakri Premium Spiced Tea For The Coziest Cuppas (2023)
Wagh Bakri Spiced Tea is here to find a permanent place in your pantry. So long, regular chai patti.
Do you reply to ‘what time is it?’ with ‘it’s chai o’clock!’?
You aren’t wrong, and definitely not alone. Chai, the warming, comforting beverage makes for an ideal cuppa for anytime of the day. That’s because it has one third of the caffeine content as coffee.
Masala chai or spiced tea is the traditional chai recipe with aromatic spices like cloves, cardamom, peppercorns, cinnamon, ginger, and more. Time-consuming yet infinitely rewarding, if you’re looking for a quick fix to masala chai, Wagh Bakri may have something for you. In our Wagh Bakri Spiced Tea review, we tried this tea mix to find out how close a packaged mix comes to the freshly brewed counterpart.

Wagh Bakri Spiced Tea – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
250 grams of this tea powder is packed in a pouch that is placed inside a red carton. This is priced at Rs 160/-. It has a shelf life of 12 months.
The main ingredients are black tea with natural spiced flavors of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, piper longum, clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
How we brewed this chai?
We made this beverage like regular, with milk, water, and sugar, as per taste. This turned aromatic and developed the authentic color slightly quicker than regular chai patti.
Aroma + Appearance
The fragrance of these tea leaves was, in a word, enticing! The spices lent an invigorating aroma. We could identify pepper, cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon. The most prominent was pepper.
This developed the chai brown hue quicker than normal. It was a deep amber appearance.
The flavors were as impressive as the aroma. Soothing yet re-energizing, these tea leaves had bold flavors of the spices. There was a natural sweetness, a warming spice kick, but the peppery heat took the front seat. This aspect made this chai the perfect winter evening beverage.
We also give this full marks on convenience as the need to crush or grate and add seven different spices is eliminated. You just add these tea leaves like regular to your milk and water and voila!
- Bold aroma
- Fresh, prominent flavors
- Convenient and economic
Craving masala chai but lack the patience to add seven spices? Looking for something to soothe your throat? An evening reenergizer? We recommend Wagh Bakri Premium Spiced Tea.
