- In the 1830s, the British became concerned about the Chinese monopoly on tea and began to grow tea in India and Ceylon
- In 1870, over 90% of the tea consumed in Britain was from China, but by 1900 this had dropped to 10%, replaced by tea grown in India and Ceylon
- Consumption of black tea within India remained low until a promotional campaign by the British-owned Indian Tea Association in the early 20th century encouraged factories, mines, and textile mills to provide tea breaks for their workers in the English style, with milk and sugar
- The Indian Tea Association disapproved of independent tea vendors' tendency to add spices, milk, and sugar because it reduced the usage and purchase of tea
- Masala Chai outlasted the British and established itself as a popular beverage in India and the rest of the world
- Masala means "spice mixture" and chai simply means "tea"
