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.
Antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin A, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron and threobromine.
Packed with antioxidants, 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.
We love the beauty benefits of chai so much, we even made a Chai Shimmer Lip Nourish to protect and nourish your lips from the outside in!
