With its exotic taste and nourishing benefits, chai is our super power during these busy times.
Also known as Masala Chai (mixed-spice tea), chai is known for its exotic taste and nourishing benefits. A traditional chai spice mixture usually contains cinnamon, ginger, clove, cardamom, black pepper and black tea. This combination is incredibly nourishing from the inside out and is even a natural stimulant, encouraging and facilitating balanced energy production within the body.
Packed with antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin A, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron and threobromine, chai spices prevent free radical damage that cause premature ageing. The gloves, ginger and cinnamon all contain strong anti-inflammatory benefits which reduce redness and puffiness in your complexion whilst soothing your digestive system. The mixture of ginger and cardamom also help to fight against colds and strengthen your immune system!
For a delicious warm drink, chai spices can be boiled with black tea and water, strained and served with warm milk.
Adding different ratios of each can allow you to create your own personal mixture! Refined sugar or honey can be added as an optional extra.

Why Kourtney Kardashian Loves Chai
Chai is good for you and is also eco-friendly. Many organic chai and chai-based products are grown without chemical pesticides and fertilizers–which is so important when it comes to anything you consume on a regular basis. This time of year, I love to get a chai latte (non-dairy, of course!) to get into the holiday spirit!
