National Chai Day
On September 21, the aroma filling the room comes from ancient spices, perfectly steeped into a cup of delicious tea. National Chai Day celebrates the strong, satisfying tea that’s ordered at cafes across the country.
While the Indian beverage dates back nearly 5,000 years, the chai served in homes and coffee shops today comes in many forms. The traditional Chai is steeped with black tea leaves. For the richest flavor, add whole milk. Some prefer almond or coconut milk. The most common spice in chai is cardamon. Though blends will vary from place to place, other spices include cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, and fennel. Finally, sweeten the tea with pure sugar.
The creamy, sweet and aromatic combination is irresistible. Wrap your hands around a warm cup and let the steam waft up into your senses. One sip will tell you how enjoyable National Chai Day is going to be!
HOW TO OBSERVE
Visit a local tea shop or cafe and order a cup of chai. There are a variety of blends to choose from. While chai is customarily steeped with black tea, green chai is available, too. Try both! If you already love chai, invite a friend and use #NationalChaiDay to share on social media.
