The one that started it all.
Our OG Karak, meaning “strong”, is as bold as the name suggests. This authentic milk tea, commonly known as “Chai”, fuels millions of people daily all across South Asia and the Middle East. Blended in-house by our very own Chaiwalas, the high-quality karak chai mix combines premium organic CTC black tea gathered from the foothills of Darjeeling with locally sourced ground cardamom.
CTC stands for “Crush, Tear, Curl” - the process that converts our freshly plucked tea leaves into the rich, fragrant black tea powder that makes your perfect cup of karak chai. Project Chaiwala’s OG Karak Chai is a warm, milky tea blend that combines black tea with cardamom. Strong and malty with an orangey-brown, caramel colour, karak tea packs a full-bodied, spicy flavour that is sure to keep you alert and at your best all day.
If you’re guilty of calling this tasty milk tea blend a Chai Tea or Chai Tea Latte, do not worry, we forgive you! Just remember, the longer you brew, the more “karak” it gets. It’s as simple as that.
