What is the Best time to have tea (chai)

Tea must never be a person’s first intake in the morning. People must avoid drinking chai on an empty stomach because it causes acidity, which in turn affects the digestive system in producing essential juices for metabolism. This eventually disturbs the body’s overall wellbeing.

Therefore, tea must be consumed at least 30-40 minutes after a big meal. Similarly, in the evening, you should accompany your snack with a cup of tea and not vice versa. Therefore, the snack must be your primary food. 

How to make healthier a cup of tea

Indians have a variety of tea. Some people have it without milk, while some prepare tea with milk and not water. Moreover, many tea lovers add masalas to it to make it tastier and healthier.

Does Boiling tea too much is harmful

The length of time you brew your tea will vary based on the leaves. White teas should steep between one and three minutes, green for three minutes, and black for three to five minutes. Any longer and your tea will become bitter as it releases tannins. And, yes, tannins are the same compounds you find in wine.

Here’s how you should make Indian chai tea at home:

Masala chai

1. Bring water, milk and chai spices to a simmer in a small saucepan on the stove.

2. Reduce heat and add in black tea.

3. Wait for the tea to steep.

4. Strain the warm spiced mixture into a mug; this will hold back the whole spices and tea leaves.

5. Stir sweetener into your chai and sweeten to taste.
