Chai, black tea brewed with some of the world's most medicinally active spices, has its origin in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Among other benefits, chai improves immunity, decreases inflammation, slows the effects of aging, increases cardiovascular health, prevents cancer, lowers blood sugar, increases concentration and improves digestion.
There are many recipes for this potent tea but generally it contains black tea, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, black pepper, milk and sweetener. While each of these spices have health benefits of their own, they work together to create powerful, synergistic healing effects. So let’s look at chai’s health benefits by looking at each ingredient separately.
