Chai is the Indian word for “tea” and is a great way to provide flavour into your hot beverages. They often contain Indian spices as well as milk making it more flavoursome than a traditional cup of tea. Chai started in India and has recently spread around the world making it an extremely popular beverage. Initially chai in India was a suggestion of status and loyalty, now it is a beverage part of daily routines.

Traditionally chai was a mixture of black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, star anise and black pepper. Usually the drink is finished with milk and tastes great whilst it is warm. It is known to have many health benefits including reducing cancer risks, boosting metabolism, helps lower the risk of diabetes and even boosts your energy!

Chai is a combination of flavours that has many different adaptions. For example, Americans have produced a creamier and sweeter option known as a “Chai Latte” and is available as a concentrate, powder or even in a loose leaf tea form.
