WHY CHAI? THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHAI TEA INGREDIENTS

We heart Chai!

And here is why…

Firstly, the subtle blend of exotic spices, coconut, turmeric and black pepper, is utterly delicious. Secondly, it comes with all the benefits of an authentic Indian Ayurvedic tea.

Chai (a word meaning, quite simply, ‘tea’) is created with some herbs that are incredibly medicinally active, delivering a wonderful range of health benefits with every cup. So we thought we would break it down and illustrate for you just a few of the benefits you get from each separate ingredient.

These are the ingredients packed into our own Masala Chai Tea.

  • TURMERIC
  • BLACK TEA NAM LANH
  • CEYLON CINNAMON
  • DESICCATED COCONUT
  • CARDAMOM
  • FENNEL
  • BLACK PEPPER
  • CLOVE

The spicing is subtle and complex, and utterly delicious. But isn’t it amazing that all those tastes also bring unique healing properties? So lets get cracking to see what they are!
