Sweet and Spicy Infusions make up our Extraordinary Chai Tea Blends.
Whether we sip it over ice or enjoy it as a frothy latte, chai’s are some of our favorite blends to indulge in. Originating in India, Chai is actually just a word for tea, though others may recognize its linguistic cousin, cha, which is a common word for tea throughout Asia. Blends vary throughout all parts of India. Some families may include cinnamon, fennel, and cumin, while others may prefer a sweeter version made with nutmeg, rose petals, and clove. Almost every family enjoys a blend that includes cardamom and ginger that pairs really well with sugar and milk. If you’re looking for a caffeine boost that’s not too intense, Chai is a great choice! Spices used in chai have all sorts of health benefits. Ginger, for example, helps settle a sour stomach, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is known to be high in antioxidants. Cardamom, another cornerstone of chai, works as a diuretic, detoxifier, and can even lower blood pressure.
