chai something nice

Chai, also called masala chai, is a distinctive beverage that incorporates a variety of warming spices. Although it is enjoyed throughout the world, chai originates from India where it is widely sold prepackaged in Indian grocery markets or freshly made by street vendors called chai “wallahs.”

Generally speaking, chai is composed of four basic ingredients: black tea, milk, a sweetener and spices—but many variations on ingredients and preparation exist. Families even guard their chai recipes as a legacy to pass from each generation to the next. Variations may include: nutmeg, cumin, coriander, saffron, licorice root and even rose water.
