Chai Tea- What is it?

Chai Tea- What is it?


Chai tea is a very popular drink choice on many local coffee shops menus. But, what is the drink exactly?

Chai Tea is a spicy, pungent drink made with some of the world’s most medicinally active herbs. There are thousands of chai recipes – many of which come from India – but the basic components of chai include:

  • black tea,
  • ginger,
  • clove,
  • cardamom
  • black pepper
  • heavy milk

While each of these ingredients has its own powerful health benefits, the combination creates a potent tea that may help support digestion, prevent cancer, lower blood sugar and promote cardiovascular health. In addition to these great health benefits , you end up with one great tasting drink. With the colder months approaching, it makes for an alternative to coffee and hot chocolate.

Mastertons offers an instant chai tea mix in a 250g and 500g tub that can be mixed with water and milk, depending on your preference.
