Chai Tea is also known as Yogi Tea. It is a health-promoting tonic for the whole body, known to strengthen the nervous system, energize the body, clear the mind, and is both a remedy and preventive measure for colds, allergies, and other illnesses. Before adding the plant-milk and sweetener you can store the tea in the fridge. When ready to drink, simply heat tea and add plant-milk and sweetener. This Chai Tea is a comforting beverage and aroma therapy in one with its delicious flavours of ginger, cardamom and cinnamon. Enjoy!
