What Does Chai Tea Taste Like?

Originally from India, masala chai tea is incredibly popular and unlike any other tea you'll encounter. That's because it's more of a full-scale tea beverage recipe with added spices.

Chai tea starts with black tea and fuses it with warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger and a dash of black pepper. To this fusion, milk and sugar are added, so you'll need to be careful if you want to try chai out at a restaurant or cafe. Ask for soy or nondairy milk, but do be sure to check that a chai tea mix doesn't already contain milk.

The result is a robustly flavored drink, sweet, creamy and spicy with a slightly flowery quality from the cardamom and peppercorns.
