Welcome to englishchai.com. Chai (pronounced “kai”) tea is a delicious and refreshing spiced milky tea. Indigenous to India as well as South Asia, the word chai is derived from the Chinese word cha, which means tea, so it’s a bit redundant to call it “chai tea”. Chai is traditionally made by boiling black loose leaf tea in a pot with water and adding milk and sugar. Sweeteners or pungent spices such as cinnamon, cloves, or ginger are usually added after, and when prepared correctly chai tastes like milky tea and has a rich, aromatic flavor with pleasant hints of spice, which lend it it’s “zing”.
Chai is more popular In India than coffee, and it is gaining a lot of popularity in the West due to its sweet, refreshing taste and numerous health benefits. Chai has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal tonic, since it is rich in disease-fighting antioxidants. It is thought that tea contains ten times as many antioxidants as you’d find in fruit and vegetables. Besides
aiding in digestion and relaxation, the antioxidants in tea slow the aging process, and help to prevent and fight high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and even cancer and Alzheimer’s. It is also said to boost the immune system and prevent strokes.

The spices added to chai have health benefits as well. Ginger has long been used to strengthen and heal the immune and digestive systems, and help heal colds and sore throats. Cloves have restorative powers, and cinnamon acts as a mild stimulant that help circulate the properties of other spices through the body quicker. Tea also contains fluoride that benefits the teeth, reducing cavities, plaque, and even bad breath. Tea also does not stain the enamel if you brush regularly. However, chai does not have the diuretic effect that coffee has unless one drinks it excessively.

Tea and exotic beverage enthusiasts all over the world have enjoyed chai for centuries. However, the custom of using milk when preparing chai, which originated in the United Kingdom, and was more a reflection of social habit than of taste. The English typically drank milk with tea, hence the name English Chai. Our tea is manufactured with finest Assam black tea, which is used because a strong tea is necessary so that the sweeteners or spices used in its preparation do not overpower the tea taste and fragrance, so that the traditional-tasting chai is produced and enjoyed.
