The origins of chai
Ancient masala chai has a rich history dating back thousands of years, steeped in tales of royalty and herbal medicine. It is said that a king created masala chai as a cleansing, vivifying Ayurvedic beverage. Originally made with a wide range of spices, masala chai translates to spiced tea, though the original blend did not contain any tea leaves and was caffeine-free. It was either served hot or cold and was used as a remedy for ailments. The popularity of this sweet and spicy drink grew in India throughout the early 1900s and furthermore in the 1960s when it became widely available with the addition of black tea. Worldwide, masala chai began to grow in popularity and eventually the name shifted simply to chai. Over the years, chai has evolved and now includes countless variations around the world. Our fresh chai concept pays homage to the masala chai that originated. in India and we still use our original recipe for our signature Calmer Chai.
