• The Zanzibar masala tea is a traditional drink. Can be black or with milk. Traditionally the milk tea was made with pure cow’s milk and mixed spices. Whether it be black or with milk, the Zanzibar masala tea has a special taste derived from the mixture of flavouring spices. The proportion of the mixed spices is carefully and accurately added to maintain the flavor making the tea enjoyable. The mystery of the added spices is that they serve as a cure to minor stomach and other physical disorders.
