  • improves the mood,
  • improves concentration
  • positive effects on the cardiovascular system
  • positive effects on the nervous system
  • positive effects on the lymphatic system
  • positive effects on the hormonal system
  • positive effects on the immune system

The colder months are about warming spices and sweet chai is arguably the best sweet and spicy tea available.  
So get yourself some new soft pyjamas, cosy up with loved ones (or by yourself – hello fellow introverts!) and sip the warm, delicious liquid. This also provides a toxic free way to fill your room with on season aroma.
