Ice tea for summer

Summer in India can be harsh, with temperatures soaring above 40°C in many parts of the country. The sweltering heat can drain your energy and make you feel thirsty and dehydrated. And a tall glass of ice tea is a refreshing way to cool down and quench your thirst during the summer. Wagh Bakri offers four delicious flavours in ice tea premixes - Lemon Ice Tea, Orange Ice Tea, Peach Ice Tea and Cranberry Ice Tea. They are easy to prepare, rich in antioxidants and give a citrusy taste in every sip.

To make a glass of ice tea, all you need to do is mix the Wagh Bakri Ice Tea premix in chilled water for a few minutes and stir well. You can also add ice cubes, lemon slices or even mint leaves to enhance the flavour of your drink. Whether you sip it on your balcony, in your garden or at the beach, Wagh Bakri ice tea will make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated in the summer.

Ginger tea for winter

Winter in India brings a pleasant coolness. The chill in the air invites cosy evenings by the fire and warm gatherings with loved ones. During this season, ginger tea emerges as a beloved beverage choice. Its spicy and invigorating flavour offers a comforting relief from the cold. Its aromatic qualities and subtle heat make it a staple in Indian households during winter, offering a delightful way to stay cosy and uplifted amidst the seasonal chill.

For those seeking a touch of rejuvenation during winter, explore the invigorating Mint Green Tea or the calming Shudh Kahwa Green Tea – both from Wagh Bakri’s green tea bags collection. These green teas are soothing as they bring in a feel of warmth with every sip.

Masala tea for monsoon

The pitter-patter of rain awakens a certain nostalgia in every Indian heart during monsoon. During this season, there's a natural inclination towards seeking warmth amidst the downpours and grey skies. Masala tea emerges as the perfect beverage companion for the monsoon.

Wagh Bakri Premium Spice tea or Masala tea is a delightful concoction of black tea, ginger, clove, cardamom and other aromatic spices. The delightful aroma provides warmth that cuts through the chill of the rainy days. If you are looking for a convenient way to enjoy masala tea, shop Wagh Bakri Masala Tea Bags. With these tea bags, you can experience the rich flavours and soothing qualities of masala tea without the hassle of preparing it from scratch. Simply steep the tea bag in hot water, and in moments, you'll have a steaming cup of masala chai ready to enjoy.

Herbal tea for autumn

In India, autumn brings a welcome relief from the sweltering heat of summer, marking the transition to cooler temperatures and a colourful transformation of landscapes. As the monsoon rains recede, autumn paints India in a canvas of warm hues.

During this time, herbal teas like Tranquil Berry Tea and Rose Blush Tea offer a harmonious blend of flavours and aromas that complement the essence of the season. Tranquil Berry Tea, infused with the tangy notes of hibiscus, provides a refreshing burst of flavour reminiscent of the last fruits of summer, while Rose Blush Tea combines the delicate fragrance of rose petals with the gentle warmth of green tea, creating a soothing and aromatic brew. These herbal teas offer a comforting respite from the cooling temperatures.

Green tea for spring

Spring brings with it a renewed sense of life and what better way to celebrate than with a cup of light and invigorating green tea? Wagh Bakri’s green tea bags offer a variety of options with convenience, from the naturally soothing Natural Green Tea to the refreshing Honey Lemon Green Tea. These antioxidant-rich teas are perfect to welcome the vibrant spring season. To make a cup of Wagh Bakri green tea, all you need to do is boil some water, add a tea bag and let it steep for a few minutes. Enjoy your green tea with some fresh fruits, salads or sandwiches and embrace the spring symphony with Wagh Bakri tea.

Assam tea for all seasons

In the diverse climate of India, where each season brings its mood, there’s one tea that stands out as a perfect companion throughout the year, the Assam Tea. This robust tea, with its rich and full-bodied flavour, is strong enough to energise you during the cool winter mornings, yet its briskness is equally refreshing during the hot summer days. Its malty notes are a delight during the monsoons, especially when paired with some delicious nankhatai or kanda bhajiyas.
