How Chai became to be

Chai tea, also known as masala chai, originated in the Indian subcontinent. The word "chai" simply means "tea" in Hindi. Although the exact origin of chai tea is difficult to trace, it is believed to have been created thousands of years ago in ancient India.

Tea itself was introduced to India in the 16th century by the British East India Company. Initially, tea was consumed plain, but it quickly became popular to add various spices and herbs to enhance its flavor and health benefits. This led to the development of chai tea as we know it today.
