In India, for every occasion we need tea. Be it for seasonal escape, watching India-Pak matches, or in ‘bua ki shadi’, nothing hits as strong as a cup of masala chai.
Recently, India’s masala chai grabbed 2nd spot on the list of the world's top non-alcoholic drinks by TasteAtlas.
On this celebratory occasion, take a look at 5 best-preferred masala chai and their health benefits:
Classic Masala Chai
Classic masala tea is not only an everyday drink but also an emotion that brews in every kitchen in India. We just need a few cloves, cinnamon, ginger, milk, and sugar to brew this all-time favourite tea. This strong tea is great for treating colds which also boosts immunity and soothes pain.
Rose Masala Chai
Rose masala chai is the twist on classic masala chai by adding rose petals to it. This not only adds the fragrance of rose to the chai but also de-stress and relaxes you.
Kashmiri Kahwa also known as Pink Chai is a refreshing drink from Kashmir. The pink colour originates from the green tea leaves used in the tea. Spices like cardamom, cinnamon, and saffron are added to make this chai healthy and flavourful. As this chai has green tea, it helps burn fat and improves metabolism.
Parsi chai is nothing but an extra addition of mint leaves and ginger to the classic masala chai. This masala chai improves digestion and helps with a blocked nose. It also improves sleeping habits.
Sulaiman chai is prepared using black tea leaves and is served without milk. This sweet-sour chai can be more flavourful by adding lemon juice, clove, sugar, etc. You can also add mint or basil leaves for added flavour and health benefits. Packed with such nutrient ingredients this chai offers various health benefits, including improved digestion and cures sore throat and cold.
