    • Cardamom and Ginger are used in every true masala chai, but blends can contain up to 9 or 10 spices. Ours also includes cloves and cinnamon
    • The Assam black tea used as the base of most chai is a strong, malty tea that wont find its flavor overwhelmed by the addition of milk and spices
    • For an incredible dessert, steep this tea extra strong and blend the resulting tea with your favorite vanilla ice cream—a delicious, spicy, and creamy Masala Chai ice cream
    • 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
