    • This blend of an Assam black tea, rooibos and spices is flavorful, but with only half the caffeine.
    • The Assam black tea used as the base of most chai is a strong, malty tea that won't find its flavor overwhelmed by the addition of milk and spices.
    • For an incredible dessert, steep this tea extra strong and add condensed sweetened milk for an authentic masala chai flavor experience!
    • "Masala" means a combination of spices and herbs.  The word Chai is the Hindi word for tea! 
    • 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."
