What is Chai?
It is still made with a base of brewed black tea and real spices, including cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger, with milk and then can be finally sweetened with sugar or honey.
History of Chai
Legend has it a king in India wanted to create a healing beverage derived from Ayurvedic traditions. The result combined medicinal spices with the tea growing in the Assam region in India. Though the exact historic origin of masala chai is unclear, its popularity soared when the British began promoting black tea consumption during work breaks in India in the early 1900′s. Starting with the British tradition of adding milk and sugar to their tea, vendors also added a mixture of spices. The perfect blend of tea, whole spices, milk, and honey became what we know in today’s world as “Chai”.
Why we use David Rio Chai?
Because of it’s premium, freshly ground spices are used to create the perfect Chai experience. The difference with using fresh spices is, once the hot water or steamed milk hits the David Rio mix in the cup, the spices explode into their full flavour.
