National Chai Day 2022 History and Significance
Chai got introduced to the world almost 5,000 years ago as it was created for medicinal purposes and as a special drink for royalty. However, the modern version of chai we know today dates back to the time when the British colonised India and started tea cultivation in the country. Slowly, the beverage was made into a rich form by adding milk and sweetener. Numerous cafes also started selling chai or spiced tea by experimenting with the drink according to the consumers’ tastes. Meanwhile, National Chai Day was founded by Somrus, the world’s first line of Indian liqueurs, in 2018. Since then, the day has been celebrated to create awareness and highlight the importance of chai in today’s world.
