The name “chai” is actually the Hindi word for “tea”, which was derived from “cha”, the Chinese word for “tea”. Recipes vary across continents, cultures, towns and families. Traditional ingredients usually include fresh spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger and black peppercorns steeped with black tea and milk. The traditional Indian method of brewing chai is to simmer the ingredients in a pot, producing a beverage which is rich and milky, deeply coloured, flavourful and generously sweetened. BrewBakers offers a variety of traditional and non-traditional chai blends, providing a quick and convenient way to brew and enjoy chai.
