Chai tea is becoming increasingly popular in cafes around the world. Originating from the Indian subcontinent, chai is made from brewing black tea leaves with a mixture of aromatic spices. In this case, cardamom, cinnamon and fennel seeds. The amount of sugar you add is optional however I love my chai hot and sweet.
