What is chai tea?

What is chai?

For starters, what does his name mean? In India, it is called “Masala chai” (in Hindi), where the word “chai” means “tea” and “masala” means a mixture of spices.

It is therefore an infusion of black tea mixed with many spices, including cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, fennel, cloves, black pepper and milk. Chai tea has a spicy and very fragrant taste, and it is often served hot with milk and sugar. It is a one-of-a-kind drink, both sweet and delicious.

The history of chai

It originated in India, where it became a popular drink centuries ago. In India, chai tea is often served for breakfast and throughout the day, and is considered a refreshing and invigorating beverage.

Chai tea spread around the world in the 1970s, thanks to hippies and travelers who discovered it in India and brought it back to their countries of origin. Today, this blend is enjoyed in many countries around the world, and it is often served in cafes and restaurants. It is especially popular in the West, where it is consumed as a warm, comforting drink on cold, rainy days.
