The Art of Chai
The Art of Chai explores the origins of this spiced tea, deeply rooted in Indian and Ayurvedic culture. Chai’s complex flavours and traditional brewing method adds to the mystery surrounding it. An essential drink in Indian culture, now having gained a strong following in the Western world.
