PS I love the taste of chai, but I don’t like the caffeine. Caffeine is an awe full enemy to the adrenal glands sending them into exhaustion. This can lead to fatigue, weight gain, blood pressure issues, anxiety and fluid retention. Instead, I use the spices that make it so delicious and add it in a non-threatening, flavorful combination that allows continuous detoxification without missing out on flavor. I think you will enjoy this as much as I do. Let me know what you think.
