I love tea. I love chai tea. I’ve loved it since the first time I had it. But there were always two things that bothered me about it: 1) The taste is never as good as when my mom makes it, and 2) the price. I’ve finally found a solution to both of those problems, and will probably never have to go back to making my own again!
Chai is a popular drink in India, also known as “Masala Tea”. It is usually made by boiling milk with black tea leaves and spices like cardamom, ginger, cloves, pepper, and cinnamon. When it cools down, sugar is added. As the milk boils down to take on the flavor of the spices and tea leaves, it gives off aromas that are so distinctively Indian.
Chai Patti is a pregnancy tea, and it is made from the leaves of the Chai plant. It is different than chamomile tea in that it has an earthy taste, which I think really compliments the sweetness in the tea. The honey in the tea also adds to its taste and can add a little bit to your metabolism.
