After making your lists and checking them twice, take a few minutes to relax in front of the fire (or the kitchen table) with a cup of invigorating chai. In India, chai is a traditional tea that blends exotic spices and black tea with boiled milk and water to create a beverage refreshing to body, mind, and spirit. This special seasonal chai was created by Juanita Crampton, a founder of Sattwa Chai, a national company producing a line of delicious chai teas.
