- In the 1830s, the British became concerned about the Chinese monopoly on tea and began to grow tea in India and Ceylon. The amount of tea consumed in Britain that was from China dropped from 90% to 10% in 30 years as it was replaced by the tea being grown in India and Ceylon.
- Consumption of black tea in India remained low until the British-owned Indian Tea Association encouraged factories, mines, and textile mills to provide English style tea breaks for their workers in the early 20th century.
- The Indian Tea Association disapproved of independent tea vendors adding spices, milk, and sugar to tea — however, masala chai outlasted British rule and established itself as a popular beverage in India and quickly, the rest of the world.
- Masala means "spice mixture" and chai simply means "tea".
