Creamy Chai Latte


Masala Chai literally means ‘mixed-spice tea’ in Hindi. It refers to an aromatic Indian flavor mix of warming spices including cardamom, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and vanilla. Chai spices will soothe your digestion, clear out your sinuses and warm up your body from the inside out. They will also boost your immune system and help to rejuvenate your skin. Enough reasons to enjoy this Creamy Chai Latte!
