Aromatic Pukka Chai is inspired by India’s passion for spiced tea; a chai vendor is to be found on every street corner, regional variations abound and almost every Indian household has their own preferred combination. The pukka blend is a special favourite, having an exotic, uplifting character that is intensely tasty.
Chai Tea is not just about delicious flavour; perfect to drink hot or cold, it also helps to regulate the body temperature, keeping it cool in summer, comfortably warm in winter. In India, where weather extremes are experienced every year, spiced chai is frequently downed by the entire populace and is considered little short of a life saver.
Freshly ground whole spices
The natural flavourings in Pukka Chai Tea are freshly ground from whole spices to make sure that their best qualities are obtained. Ginger Root is a warming, energizing favourite, green cardamom gets the digestive juices going while clove and cinnamon both bring their evocative aroma to the blend. All these spices are carminative, which means they are rich in oils that stimulate movement in the digestive system and relax and support the stomach, thereby easing discomforts such as nausea, flatulence and dyspepsia in the digestive tract.
Pukka Chai Tea possesses another beneficial aspect, namely a selection of vitamins that enrich the drink and fortify your system. All perform a range of vital functions when taken in the required quantities. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), for example, is important for proper red blood cell function and maintains and improves the mucous membranes in the digestive system. Vitamin A and its precursor, beta-carotene, are free radical scavenging antioxidants that are also good for the teeth and eyes and benefit the repair of skin and mucosal tissue. Vitamin D3 (the most stable form of this nutrient) facilitates calcium absorption and includes muscle strengthening and immune system enhancement among it positive actions.
Whether you bear these details in mind, or rather choose to concentrate on the subtle textures and flavours of this traditional masala tea is entirely up to you – either way you’ll find sipping a cup of PUKKA PURE Pukka Chai Tea a deliciously satisfying experience.
