According to Ayurvedic philosophy, the spices in chai are considered "sattvic", a category in Ayurveda attributed with calming, vitalizing and mentally clarifying qualities. Sattvic qualities were originally sought by yogis and spiritual aspirants wishing to live a contemplative life, but many of the sattvic attributes are perfect antidotes to the stresses of modern life.
