Originally crafted in India many thousands of years ago, chai is a boldly spiced tea type that has gained popularity with tea drinkers all around the world. A wide range of spices can be included, such as cinnamon, cardamom, clove, ginger, anise, and peppercorns - however there is no singular universal recipe. In fact, chai recipes and preparation methods vary widely by family, chaiwala (the revered tea-makers who prepare chai for sale in small shops or in the streets in India) and region.
Prior to the British planting tea in Assam in 1835, chai did not include tea leaves - it was a strictly herbal medicinal blend, and caffeine-free.
