The Unique Qualities of Chai Tea

Commonly known as the national drink in India, the popularity of Chai has spread worldwide over the last few years. In India, it is known as Masala Chai, Masala is the word for spice in Hindi, Chai simply means tea. There is no traditional recipe for Chai, Indian families mix up their own spicy brew, using black tea with milk, sugar, and aromatic spices. Spices like cardamom, ginger, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, fennel, and pepper are most commonly used.

The increase in popularity has led to a range of new variations of Chai. The spices are these days not just married with the original Indian black tea but also green tea and Rooibos to create a warming drink of different kind.

History of Chai Tea

Legends differ on when Chai Tea’s history began, some say it started around 9000 years ago! The first appearance of Chai Tea arrived after 1835 when the British set up tea gardens in India. In the 1900’s vendors used milk, sugar and spices to replace the expensive black tea ingredient and Chai Teas popularity soared. This was due to its inexpensive prices but flavourful taste!
