Why Chai Makes The Best Holiday Gift

Why Chai Makes The Best Holiday Gift

The holidays are coming (or maybe they're already here?!) and we're here to remind you why chai makes the perfect gift. Whether you're looking to surprise a seasoned chai lover or a newbie, we have just the thing. We've been known to impress even the snobbiest of chai snobs, so if you're looking for something that might actually excite your parents or aunties, you're in the right place. 

Here are 3 reasons why the gift of chai is always a good idea. 

1. It's a healthy, "better for you" alternative to coffee 

Did you know a cup of chai has only 1/3 the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee? That means you're still able to get the energy boost to start your day with the morning jitters or afternoon crashes. What's even better are the healing properties that are packed into every cup of chai. Since our recipe is heavy on the cardamom, cloves and cinnamon, our Masala chai is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory elements. That means healthier cell function and a happier immune system, which is exactly what we should be gifting everyone this year.

2. It's easy to make 

Every order of Kolkata Chai comes with simple instructions as well as a video tutorial. In about 5 minutes and some kitchen basis, you can make a fresh cup and customize it to your taste including your choice of milk, sweetener and more. What's not to love?

3. It's the real deal

Your friends might've had chai before but have they had real chai before? This isn't your average "chai tea" that is available at Starb--, you get it. Our tea is sourced from a tea estate in Assam, India and organic and fair trade certified. We use the same CTC Assam tea that is used on the streets of India to keep the flavor profile authentic with no compromises. No whipped cream, no pumpkin spice, no additives, just pure masala chai.
