About Vanilla ChaiVanilla chai is a variant on spiced tea or masala chai which involves a blend of tea, usually black tea, with spices and vanilla. Spiced tea originated in India, where it is properly called masala chai. Vanilla, an ingredient originating in central America and not commonly used in India, is added to the mixture of spices, leading to a tea that is creamy in character and rather different from most teas sold as "chai". Vanilla chai has become popular in the U.S.
This category is for blends of tea with spices and scented/flavored with vanilla. For teas flavored with vanilla but not containing other spices, see vanilla black tea.
