    What is chai?

    Chai, meaning tea in Hindi, is a popular beverage that originated in India and is now enjoyed by many countries around the world. One of the most popular black tea fusions in the world, traditional Indian chai is generally made up of black tea, milk, various spices and a sweetener. This assists in bringing out the flavour of the spices. Although the spices can vary from region to region, the most common chai spices are cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper. All of which produce a brew that’s both sweet and spicy.

    Our chai blends draw inspiration from some of the most popular flavours found within the chai brewing regions of India and Siam (modern-day Thailand). India has a myriad of street vendors selling their brews on practically every street corner. They generally prefer a much sweeter concoction than what most Australians are used to although chai truly is a delicious treat not to be missed when visiting India.

    Chai can be purchased here in Australia pre-blended or you can create your own, which allows you to focus on your favourite spices. Here at The Tea Centre, we have seven varieties to cater for every taste. We have everything from a green chai blend to rooibos chai (caffeine-free) and several varieties of black chai blends. Masala chai, in particular, is our blend that’s most similar to a standard Indian chai.

    Chai is perfect on its own or can be brewed with milk and a dash of honey for extra creaminess. With chai blends based on black, rooibos and green teas, there is a perfect chai for everyone!

    What are the health benefits of chai?

    The spices found within our chai blends boast a variety of benefits, including anti-inflammatory and Ayurvedic properties. Chai is great for supporting a healthy heart and common ingredients such as ginger and black pepper are known to aid digestion. The anti-inflammatory properties in the cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon-infused chai blends are also lauded for reducing blood sugar levels.

    Thanks to its incorporation of black tea leaves, chai contains a healthy amount of caffeine, making it a great alternative to coffee for those looking to stay energised throughout the day. Many of the black tea leaves in our chai have high polyphenolic content, and therefore assists in helping tea drinkers receive their daily dose of antioxidants. These health benefits make adding chai to your tea selection at home a worthwhile investment.
