Typhoo (Chinese meaning in part = doctor) is today an iconic British label popular in more than 50 countries with 12 brands and over 400 products in its kitty including specialty teas and 100% organic caffeine-free fruit infusions. They have also launched the first globally certified environmentally sustainable teas to be marketed across India with the seal of Rainforest Alliance. Isn't it heartening to see someone doing an important bit in protecting our future? :)
My parents were the guinea pigs for trying out the Adrak Chai and Masala Chai. My dad loves his tea strong while my mom is all about the spices. Surely enough, the rich-bodied blend of premium Assam Teas with heart-warming ginger punch was my dad's favorite (it is darker in color,just a bit). My mom was thrilled with the authentic flavor of Masala Chai with premium tea infused with Clove, Ginger, Cardamom and Cinnamom. In her own words, 'This is the blend that satisfies the soul for any true Indian' (I do feel sometimes she feels like disowning me because I do not share her passion for tea every morning :D)
Both my parents take their tea with milk and sugar,so they made Typhoo Adrak and Masala Chai too the same way, after infusing the tea bag for just about 4 minutes. Will they repurchase it? YES. They love the authentic flavors, the color, the full-bodied rich texture and the appetizing fragrance :) The prices are very reasonable for the quality too at just Rs. 195 for 25 tea bags.
We love the multiple ways in which Typhoo's offerings can be enjoyed, whether hot or cold, with or without milk, with or without adding sugar. The bottomline remains that they are healthy AND tasty. I can't help but imagine how Mary would feel today. Proud I hope. After all, it is not everyday one gives birth to a legend :)
