I love a spicy cup of chai tea on a foggy morning or chilly evening.
Aside from its exquisite taste, chai offers other benefits further down the digestive line. This wonderful tea can reduce gas. Chai is made from a blend of spices — cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cardamom — that individually combat flatulence, but mixed together seems greater than the sum of its parts.
What is not to like about tea? Tea and especially chai tea help prevent and fight many different kinds of cancer, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and may reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.
The fact is - every ingredient in chai tea is good for you, and when you put them all together they pack a powerful punch for your immune system.
Chai is a great alternative to your morning cup of coffee - a 5 ounce cup of coffee contains 200 mg of caffeine and black tea contains half that.
In the winter, after a long day of playing out in the snow, it's nice to come home, take a hot shower and curl up on the couch with a steaming cup of chai tea. Of course you can buy chai tea packets, but nothing compares to making it yourself.
