Chintal Kakaya has been a Tea India soulmate for some time, she strongly believes in creating great quality products, free from artificial additives and preservatives. Handmade with love, and fresh to order in small batches so you get to enjoy it at its best. From sourcing ingredients to creating the product there is no compromise on taste, quality or texture. Being creative with spices, she has revived the classic Nankhatai with a variety of classic and modern flavours. Perfect for those who enjoy unique and creative flavours in their bakes.
Originally from Mombasa, Kenya, Chintal was surrounded by a close-knit community where food was prepared and shared on many occasions. This love affair with food started from a very young age watching her mum and grandmother prepare delicious traditional Gujarati and International dishes. This passion fueled even further when she would observe her mum creating fabulous cakes, treats and desserts for special occasions, being completely “wowed” by how simple ingredients turned into wonderful creations. Her passion for experimenting with flavours and spices to create a unique twist on classic recipes is how Chinskitchen was born.
This story of inspiring the next generation to create and experiment with flavours, reflects the story of Tea India and is why we feel so connected to Chintal. Our very own master blender grew up on the banks of the Brahmaputra River, where he lived among the tea gardens of Assam and learned to love the evocative aroma of freshly made Chai.
Chin’s delicious range of cakes and Nankhatai are the perfect accompaniment for a heart warming cup of chai, but if you fancy a caffeine free afternoon tea, choose a Tea India Ayurvedic blend and a ‘Great Taste Award’ winning Almond and Pistachio Nankhatai, delicious!
