History of chai tea

Where does chai tea come from?

Chai tea originated in India, where it is known as masala chai. Masala means blend of spices and the tea is traditionally made with milk, black tea, sugar and a mixture of spices such as cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Today, however, chai tea is popular all over the world and there are many different variations and ways of preparing it.

How did chai tea spread?

Chai tea originated in India and was traditionally called masala chai. It consists of a mixture of black tea, milk, spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and cloves, and sweeteners such as sugar or honey. During the British colonial rule in India in the 19th century, chai tea was also discovered and enjoyed by the British. Chai tea then began to spread to the USA in the 1960s, when the hippie movement was looking for exotic and natural drinks. In recent years, chai tea has become increasingly popular due to its health benefits and unique taste, and is now consumed worldwide. There are now many different varieties of chai tea, including those without black tea for people who want to stay caffeine-free. An example of this is a chai tea based on rooibos tea or herbal tea chai.
