Chai, for me, has a special meaning: Coming from Indian origin, we always had a chai moment in our family.
Those moments always gave me calmness, a nice moment for myself as well as inner happiness. When we had our Chai moments, it brought the family together.
Recipes for chai vary across continents, cultures, towns, and families. The traditional ingredients of a spiced tea blend usually include black tea mixed with strong spices, like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and black cardamom.
Being born in the Netherlands, having lived across all continents (and cultures), finding authentic Indian chai, always frustrated me. That is why I I felt it was time to bring out authentic Indian chai and golden milk, following traditional Indian recipes which my mother learned from hers.
Our Ami's Original Chai is as authentic as Indian chai can be. Perfect for anyone new to chai or someone who prefers their chai clean, classic, and delicious.
Chai drinking has been linked to various health benefits, like:
Lower blood pressure The cinnamon in chai tea may prevent hypertension, especially in people with diabetes. Research also indicates that people who drink several cups of black tea every day lower their blood pressure by several points.
Better brainpower. The black tea and spices found in chai can provide significant benefits to both short-term and long-term cognitive function.
Research reveals that the mere smell of cinnamon can improve both attention and memory. Black tea contains caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine, both of which are linked to improved focus.
Lower blood sugar Black tea helps to regulate glucose levels and may prevent sudden spikes in blood sugar. It is especially valuable for controlling glucose levels after drinking sugary beverages.
Boosts your metabolism.
Did you know that there are certain spices that can help boost your metabolism? And the good news is they can be found in chai tea! Chai spices help stimulate the digestive and pancreatic enzymes that can improve oxygen uptake and breakdown of fat. As a result, you can have improved metabolism and can also contribute to your feeling of fullness. It’s no wonder that chai tea and weight loss often go together.
You can choose from our original recipe or add some zen to it. The choice is always yours.
