Honouring the vibrancy of Bombay and the legacy of Gerald Aungier, president of the East India Company in 1699, our Bombay Chai Loose Tea blend infuses black tea with fragrant cinnamon, clove and cardamom. The choice tea for a multitude of festivities.

Gerald Aungier became the President of the East India Company in India, Persia and Arabia in 1699. It was under his leadership that the company's headquarters moved from Surat to Bombay, setting a course where seven small islands would grow to be one of the world's largest modern cities.

Credited with establishing the first mint, constituting the first courts of law, importing the first printing press and fortifying the city's defences by constructing the Bombay Castle, perhaps Governor Aungier's greatest achievement was in attracting Muslim, Hindu and Parsi artisans and traders from the mainland to Bombay.

The cosmopolitan nature of the city was set and this tea, blending together a vibrant variety of spices, honours the vibrancy of Bombay, and its second Governor.
