Organic chai tea is a traditional beverage enjoyed throughout India, Sri Lanka and many Asian nations. This spicy drink is made by brewing strong, black tea with an assortment of spices. Typically cardamom, cinnamon, pepper and cloves among others. Milk and sugar are commonly added to the Chai tea to balance and enhance its spiciness with milky sweetness.
Anise is a member of the carrot family and native to Egypt and western Asia. Its sweet, licorice-like fragrance is unmistakable. Anise is said to support the liver and digestion, support healthy teeth and quiet respiratory complaints.

This includes supporting healthy lipid levels, blood sugar, a healthy inflammation response, memory and brain function.
