DISCLAIMER: This is not your “traditional” Masala Chai. We’re called The Chai Villain for a reason. This is a flavour explosion.
50% of the sweetness of our Original Sticky Chai Blend, but featuring the same flavour profile, our Less Sweet Blend packs a punch. It is beautifully-balanced and toes the line between sweet and savoury. This blend is perfect for those wanting something a little less saccharine, and a little more explosive.
It’s handmade in small batches in Melbourne, Australia, from the finest organic, ethically-sourced local and imported ingredients. Nothing but spice, tea, and honey in a fully-recyclable bag.
Choose from our 250g or 1kg bags in the drop-down menu above.
PS- it costs a little bit more than our Original Sticky Chai Blend because less honey means more spice in each bag and spice is much more expensive. On the bright side, you won’t need to use as much. Read more about it here.
Organic Black Ceylon Tea, Organic Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey, Organic Ceylon Cinnamon, Organic Black Peppercorn, Fennel Seed, Star Anise, Green Cardamom, Organic Clove, Bay Leaf, Red Chilli, Australian Pink Salt. That's it.
$1 from every bag of The Chai Villain’s Sticky Chai Blend sold on this site is donated to The Wilderness Society for their important work protecting the environment.
Add 1 tbsp (or more, if you’re bad) of Chai Blend to 300ml of your choice of cold milk/mylk. Bring to a simmer, then kill the heat and let it sit for 4 minutes. Strain and drink. Read and watch our scientifically-backed method here.
For icy cold chai, do exactly as above and then chill. Try our Cold Brew method for a deliciously refreshing drink, or make Chai-Infused Vodka. Have it neat or in one of our cocktails.
Baristas...hi. Add 1 tbsp of Chai Blend to 300ml of cold milk/mylk and steam. In-house: Leave Chai Blend to steep, and serve with strainer on the side. Takeaway: Strain Chai Blend as you pour into cup.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Real Villains go against the grain. Remove all stickers and put them in your home recycling/compost bin. Take the empty bag to the REDcycle collection point at your local Coles or Woolworths for recycling.
A rich, traditional, full, nurturing blend. Lovely for when you want to drink a LOT of chai (so, always) and you don't want to be sweet-shocked. Love it.
I'm so glad I found you! Have been searching high and low for chai that offers real spice flavour, and love that you have the less sweet version available! Love it!
I love the depth of this chai blend! Exactly what I've been looking for and I'm a self proclaimed chai snob
Chai the way it should be
The spices hit you somewhere deep, with the perfect level of sweetness... transports me to drinking a steaming hot chai aboard the train to Bangalore to calls of "Chai walla, chai walla". Only thing is, I definitely put more than one tablespoon per 300mL because I like it STRONG!
Been avoiding Chai for years......
......because I thought it was a weak, bland milky drink. Wrong!! Try it, you won't be disappointed.
