Did you know that in many parts of the world, “chai” is simply the word for tea?
However, in the Western world, chai has become synonymous with a type of fragrant, spicy Indian tea more accurately referred to as masala chai. Chai tea is a sweet and spicy tea renowned for its fragrant aroma.
- Earthy Tones
The ginger and pepper give this spicy tea a little kick while cinnamon and cloves add an earthy tone to chai blends. Chai tea is often sweetened in order to enhance to the robustness of the spices lending a spicy and sweet flavour with a creamy texture.
Chai Tea can be steeped in water alone, a mixture of water and milk, or in milk alone, depending on your preference. (You never want to truly boil milk, though, or you could scald or burn it, leaving an off flavour). It also tends to be sweetened to varying degrees.
Healthy Immune System
If you are looking to build a healthy immune system, drinking chai every day can help you achieve your goal. Cardamom has been a staple of Tibetan medicine for centuries and it contains high doses of Vitamin C and other nutrients that keep your immune system healthy.
Another spice in Chai that aids digestion is black pepper, which helps the pancreas produce digestive enzymes. These enzymes work as catalysts to speed up digestive processes that break down fats and protein.
