Chai Tea is a flavored tea beverage usually made by brewing black tea with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs. Originating in India, the beverage has gained worldwide popularity, becoming a feature in many coffee and tea houses. Chai is traditionally prepared by a decoction of green cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, ground cloves, ground ginger, and black peppercorn together with black tea leaves, although it is said that there are as many recipes for chai as there are families in India. In this vein we carry an excellent Masala Chai. Many Rivers stocks non-caffeinated herbal chai as well, with Rooibos substituting for black tea leaves. We also stock a sweet African Chai made by Kenyan farm workers based upon tea they grow themselves, with a distinctively African spice mix, similar to but also different than Indian chai spices.
