Good News for Chai Tea Drinkers
I have never been a fan of coffee and quite frankly, I just don't like the taste. I mean I love the smell of fresh roasted beans. The aroma is peaceful and sweet but the taste of coffee to me is bitter and harsh. With that said I just stumbled upon why my daily Chai habit may be healthier than I thought!
Here are 5 reasons you need to dump coffee and upgrade to chai:
#1: YOU CAN DRINK 3X AS MANY CUPS OF CHAI AS COFFEE A cup of strong coffee has three times as much caffeine as a cup of chai—leading to actual caffeine addiction (don't do drugs, kids!).
#2: CHAI HEALS YOU (NO, SERIOUSLY) Coffee contains unpronounceable chemicals like 2-Ethylphenol and quinic acid—but chai supports well-being with high-antioxidant black tea and a health-promoting blend of spices like cardamom and cloves.
#3: IT'S AN APHRODISIAC Coffee's stimulant/crash cycle doesn't do much for your life in the bedroom—but masala chai contains cinnamon, an aphrodisiac that can increase your sex drive.
#4: YOU'RE NOT TIED TO A BATHROOM Caffeine is a diuretic (it makes you pee!), meaning you're going to need to stay near a bathroom after drinking coffee—which is 98% water. Hello chai, goodbye bladder problems.
#5: CHAI NATURALLY RELIEVES STRESS The excess caffeine in coffee can release cortisol, which causes stress—while chai's blend of ingredients (notably cardamom and cinnamon) have calming and mentally clarifying effects.
