Tea has been a universally enjoyed beverage for centuries. However, the origins and historical distribution of tea are not widely known. British culture has placed a high priority on tea for over three hundred and fifty years, and many assume this is the birthplace of the popular drink. We actually have to go back almost five thousand years to discover the first recorded instances of tea! From ancient China to modern-day America, tea has had an incredible journey as one of the most influential drinks in history.
Chai, with its delicious mixture of spices, is one of tea’s most popular blends and can likely be found at any tea or coffee shop. Native to India, chai has varied recipes depending on the region, climate, and cultural preference. Strong spices, such as cinnamon and cardamom, are often combined as the base with the addition of milk and sugar to off-set the spicy flavor. Although the flavors are reminiscent of the fall and winter seasons, the versatility it brings as a hot or iced beverage allows it to be enjoyed all year long. This sweet, milky tea that we have grown to love has evolved over the years and is actually quite different from the original Indian chai recipe.
