Chai-light of the week:
Chai (the Indian word for tea) is a spicy flavoured aromatic tea from India (clue is in the title). Produced from a exotic blend of: cinnamon, fennel, ginger (yum) clove, black pepper and anise, is this weeks “Tea of the week” from theuklooseleafteacompany. Chai is a delicious blend, brewed for 3-4 minutes, I personally like mine 5-6 minutes, (I may have been a builder in a previous life). I found this a very good morning tea for myself, containing caffeine (result) for a wake up and feel good call. Chai tea is also been linked to the preservation of health in body and mind; Improving digestion, assisting the immune system, containing antioxidants and properties which assist with blood flow is reputed to produce glowing skin and better hair condition. All I know for sure, is it tastes and smells amazing (especially good Christmas festive aroma, and yes I know it's only June ). Some take this particular tea the traditional way with milk and sugar, we here at theuklooseleafteacompany prefer it without.
