How Hanuman Chai’s Signature Spice Blend Made It to the LA Times Crossword

How Hanuman Chai’s Signature Spice Blend Made It to the LA Times Crossword

The LA Times crossword recently featured a delightful surprise for chai aficionados - a clue dedicated to "A drink made with a spice blend called Karha." This is the Karha we at Hanuman Chai proudly introduced to the United States!

For those new to it, Karha is the heart of traditional Masala Chai. Karha is a blend that brings together a symphony of spices and is the soul of our signature chai - and now, it's making waves in popular culture.

Hanuman Chai was the first company to introduce Karha to the US (the Wikipedia page for Karha even cites our blog!). In 2011, we embarked on a journey to introduce traditional chai, which is rooted in Karha, to a new audience. This has been a journey of flavor and culture, and it's remarkable to see how far our idea has come. Karha is a type of spice blend that's now recognized not just by chai enthusiasts but also by the larger community, and it's remarkable to see it appear in a mainstream puzzle. This recognition is a celebration of our dedication and a milestone that we're extremely proud of. 

Our passion for Karha and authentic chai is unwavering, and we're thrilled to see it resonate so widely. As a thank you to our community, we invite you to visit us and discover the blend that's captivated the hearts of many.

This crossword mention is more than just a trivia tidbit; it's a reflection of how deeply chai culture, with Karha at its heart, has woven itself into the American fabric. We're honored to be part of this narrative, sharing our passion for authentic, flavorful chai. Discover more about our story and the heritage of Hanuman Chai on our website.
