Raise a Cup of Tea to Your Health

Delicious and Healthy
Stir up a blend of rich black tea, ginger, cardamom, cloves, black pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon; add hot water, milk and honey and what have you got? The answer is an exotic, delicious drink that may be one of the best things you've done for your health in years. Chai tea is the East's answer to the morning cup of coffee, a delicious blend of tea, milk and spices that is so smooth and wonderfully tasteful that it's hard to believe it's good for you.

Powerful Antioxidants
There's no disputing the health benefits of tea, though. There have been no less than 2000 studies done to confirm those health benefits in the past year. Black tea, the main ingredient in the chai tea recipe, contains the most powerful antioxidants that science knows. Tea and chai tea help prevent and fight many different kinds of cancer, lower cholesterol and high blood pressure may reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and are being studied for their ability to boost the immune system. That's an awful lot of goodness - and it's just a start.

The fact is that every ingredient in the chai tea recipe is good for you, and when you put them all together they pack a powerful punch for your immune system.

The next time you're considering a hot, spicy, sugar free beverage, think exotic AND healthy, and brew up a cup of delicious, sugar-free chai. Both your body and your taste buds will thank you.
