History: This tea has been around for about 5,000 years. Originally from India, the word Masala means spice, and chai is derived from the chinese word for tea. So literally translated, masala chai means spice tea. The growing demand for masala chai started in the mid 90’s when chai tea became well known in the United States. It is now a staple in the now $10 billion tea industry in the United States.
