Monsoon Bliss with Chai Teas


Monsoon Bliss with Chai Teas

As the delightful season of monsoon approaches, it's time to revel in the experiences it brings along. When someone mentions monsoon, the first thing that comes to mind is a steaming cup of Masala Chai accompanied by freshly fried pakoras. The earthy scent of petrichor, the cooling temperatures, and the gentle drizzle are all wonderful aspects, but nothing quite compares to the magic of a good cup of tea.


Savouring a cup of tea on rainy evenings, after a long day leaves you with a sense of rejuvenation that cannot be found anywhere else. Watching the pitter-patter of the drizzling rain outside your window as you sip on a heartwarming cup of soothing tea is an experience cherished by all tea enthusiasts during the monsoon. When making the perfect cup of chai on rainy days, we can’t forget about the namkeen snacks that pair with it so well. While onion pakoras are an obvious choice, samosas and kachori follow closely behind.


TGL Co. has a wide range of teas that can quench your rainy-day cravings. Whether you prefer a detoxifying herbal green tea or a strong cup of masala chai, TGL Co’s tea catalogue has got you covered.

Which is the best monsoon chai?

While there’s no right or wrong when it comes to tea, there are a few teas that pair perfectly with the monsoon vibe. We recommend Kadak Masala Chai and Bombay Cutting Chai. Here’s why:



Kadak Masala Chai:

Masala Chai is an Indian tea that is infused with spices such as cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves and bay leaves. It is a strong tea that is packed with a variety of flavours that combine together to give you a refreshing boost. Kadak Masala Chai and Indian savoury snacks are a match made in heaven. Since it is loaded with immunity-boosting spices, this tea is great for fighting off monsoon ailments like the flu, cough or cold. TGL Co. carries both loose-leaf and tea bag versions of this tea.



Bombay Cutting Chai:

Bombay Chai is an all-time classic tea that is spiked with ginger and cardamom. Being the city that never sleeps, Mumbai is filled with people who hustle throughout the day. Chai is their daily source of respite through several tiny breaks during the day. Since drinking 4-5 full cups of tea would be a lot, the concept of ‘cutting chai’ came about. Cutting chai is essentially half a cup of tea that people savour during the day. Sometimes ‘cutting’ also stands for a 1 by 2 order where two people share the cup of tea and bond over it. The Bombay Cutting Chai is infused with the true Mumbaikar spirit and is bound to leave you feeling invigorated. You can find both loose-leaf and tea bag versions of this tea on TGL Co’s website.


Here’s how to make a refreshing cup of chai to experience the bliss, this monsoon season.


  1. Add 2 tsp of loose-leaf Kadak Masala Chai or Bombay Cutting Chai to 2 cups of water.
  2. Bring this to a boil.
  3. Strain your tea into a cup.
  4. Add the sweetener of your choice.
  5. Add milk or creamer as needed.


For a quicker brew, you can also use tea bags instead of loose-leaf tea. These will also come in handy on your monsoon weekend getaways when you want to enjoy your tea with a surreal view!


  1. Use 1 tea bag of Kadak Masala Chai or Bombay Cutting Chai per cup of water.
  2. Bring the water to a boil.
  3. Steep the tea bag in hot water for 2-3 minutes and then remove it.
  4. Add the sweetener of your choice.
  5. Add milk or creamer as needed.


Tea is to your soul what the first rain shower is to the earth - it’s that mark of something new and something good. Indulge in the goodness of a magical cup of tea while enjoying the falling rain, this monsoon season.
