Introducing...Masala Chai!

Launching a new SKORDO ingredient takes plenty of creativity, time and food testing. Each blend and rub on our shelves is trialed at home, given to friends for their input, adjusted…adjusted again and then tested some more by SKORDO team members before making its way from the warehouse to the shops. The goal is twofold: First it needs to taste great and be true to the region of the world we’ve drawn inspiration from. Second, we need to have our recommended uses ready to go for the product description and our sales team. Plus, it’s fun!

Our latest ingredient, Masala Chai, is based on Cari Karonis’ at home recipe for chai. Cari is a founder of SKORDO and coffee enthusiast. She’s been making a version of this blend for years and the decision to add it to our collection was a long time coming. We wanted to launch the blend when the season was right and needed to find a production runway. Enter the Spring of 2020! Our warehouse team took the challenge of the shops being closed as an opportunity to focus on ingredient development. It’s been a real lemonade out of lemons situation and one of the end results is an aromatic, spicy Chai that’s as at home in a latte as it is on lamb or pork.
