THE SCIENCE BEHIND MASALA CHAI AND BETTER CONCENTRATION

In a world of non-stop scrolling and overstimulation, improving your focus and concentration become more important than ever. Drinking chai can actually improve your cognitive function and mental sharpness, due to a little amino acid called L-theanine. L-theanine has been medically shown to promote relaxation and reduce anxiety*. This becomes the foundation for enhanced brain function and cognition, better memory retention, and mental performance.

Here are 3 ways drinking chai can boost your brain function:

1.INCREASED ALERTNESS AND CONCENTRATION

The caffeine and L-theanine in chai can improve mental clarity, reaction time, and mood, without causing the jitters or crashes associated with coffee consumption.

2.REDUCED STRESS AND ANXIETY

The adaptogens and antioxidants in chai, powered by the cardamom and cinnamon, can help the body cope with stress and lower cortisol levels, which can otherwise impair brain function.

3.ENHANCED MEMORY AND LEARNING

The spices used in masala Chai, such as cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger, possess antioxidant properties that support brain health. The polyphenols and catechins can protect the brain from oxidative damage and inflammation, which are linked to age-related cognitive decline and memory loss.

THE REAL DEAL CHAI

If you want full-bodied, well-balanced, perfectly masala-fied chai, then run (don’t walk) to Kolkata Chai Co. for all things chai/chaya/cha. I highly recommend you mess with their products—they’re no joke. From one chai lover to another…it’s the REAL. DEAL.

NEW MORNING RITUAL

This Chai is amazing. I especially love the Rose version. Adding fresh grated ginger really sets it off. This has been my best coffee replacement yet.

MY AFTERNOON OBSESSION

If you want to try Chai.. like the real deal and NOT the imitation syrupy stuff from Starbucks this is IT!!! Maybe a 10 min process but so worth it!!

IT’S SO GOOD

I thought I’d finally break out my chai from @kolkatachaico and make it the authentic way.

DESERVES ALL THE HYPE!

We ordered an Iced Dirty Chai and the famous Oat Milk Chai Soft Serve. This is some of the best chai you can get in NYC! Going back soon to try their Masala Chai ASAP.
