Masala Chai Moments

It's December and in some parts of the world this means colder and shorter days. It's also a time of year to yearn for comfort. What better way to warm your heart and soul than with spicy tasty masala chai.

In India "Masala Chai" is the national beverage of choice. Black tea infused with spices like cardamon, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg is so comforting, add a bit of steamed milk and some fresh ginger and you have the ultimate masala chai.

Enjoy "Masala Chai" moments in December with a warm beverage that will spice up your life during those dark and cold days. MASALA CHAI is truly a perfect beverage.

Happy "Masala Chai" moments!
