BENEFITS OF CHAI TEA
Another reason we like to include chai in our day? Chai tea is filled with traditional spices hailed for their invigorating benefits that date back to early years of Ayurveda medicine. They’re also believed to help make you feel like your best self. Popular due to its delicious flavour, spiced black teas were traditionally sipped on to help with upset tummies, aid with digestion and cleanse the body. Talk about an all-around gamechanger!
