Take a break with this easy and comforting matcha chai latte recipe
For us, we like to sip on a warm bowl of matcha. It has mood-boosting properties thanks to its high l-theanine content. It can promote the increase of happy hormones, reduce the stress hormones, and make you feel relaxed. You can enjoy matcha on its own or switch it up by combining it with other flavors like with chai!
Masala chai or chai is an Indian spiced tea commonly prepared with black tea, milk, water, and sugar. Chai tea offers potential health benefits due to its blend of spices, such as cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and cloves, which may help promote digestion, boost immune function, reduce inflammation, and provide antioxidant properties.
