“It was on the Netravati Express, rolling through Kerala, when I first experienced Masala Chai. I’d been so enjoying my time on this old train – staring out across the beguiling landscapes of temples, palm trees & elephants, whilst chatting warmly to fellow passengers. However, when I was handed a cup of India’s finest refreshment, the journey just got even more exciting. I’d never tasted anything like this intoxicating blend of cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger & milk. These flavours blew my mind and chai became the one flavour which personified India for me. This charming concoction also soon made me wonder how well these amazing spices would combine with my favourite food, chocolate……” – Paul Tomlinson, Cocoa Hernando.
