Iced Chai tea is a delicious lightly spiced beverage. This tea is homemade in India, but the South African version comes ready-mixed in a powder, and is already milky. It can be served hot or cold, and is available at most good supermarkets or delis. It’s a sweetly spicy alternative to iced tea or coffee.
