Black tea is the most intensively processed type of tea. The leaves are allowed to fully oxidize, creating their black colour before they are dried, giving black tea more complexity, more astringency and fewer vegetal overtones than are typically found in other teas.

Barista-friendly brewing guide:
This means flushing, frothing, extracting, pouring and enjoying. You prepare this special Chhatrapati Chai Tea like a cappuccino using the portafilter of your machine. The tea blend is the equivalent of espresso powder.
What do you need:
*a portafilter machine
*a milk jug for frothing
*a double cup sieve.
Chai Latte Preparation:
*The Chai Tea blend is filled into the double cup sieve at 16-18 grams and is not tamped.
*The brewing group is then flushed and the portafilter is clamped in place. If a pre-infusion is possible, this should be set to 3-5 seconds to cause the surface of the tea to swell and promote a more even extraction.
*Extract a 100ml tea shot.
*Froth approximately 150 ml of milk and pour into the tea shot.
