What is Masala Chai?

Masala Chai is an Indian Spiced drink. Masala means spice, and chai means tea - in short, Spiced tea.

Enjoyed by millions in India and around the world for its rich antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

A cup of chai contains less caffeine than a cup of coffee. This means you can still enjoy a nice cup in the morning for a small but prolonged caffeine boost, and still cutting back on your caffeine intake. In addition, our body absorbs the caffeine in chai more slowly than the caffeine in coffee because of the amino acid called L-Theanine. L-Theanine is found in teas that times the release of the caffeine preventing you to surge and crash unlike heavily caffeinated drinks.
