Originally a traditional Indian spiced tea, this beverage was consumed in India by the reigning king as a healing Ayurvedic beverage. Depending on the region, Chai was served either hot or cold as a remedy for minor ailments, but did not contain black tea till the 1930s. In 1935 the British East India Company established a tea plantation in Assam in an attempt to reverse the overwhelming Chinese monopoly on the Tea Supply in Great Britain. Because of the English love of black tea, they introduced black tea leaves into the combination of Indian spices, and created the Chai we know and love today.
