masala chai combined

I like to thank  Ligia Menezes, a Brazilian journalist for selecting my photo for her recent article featuring masala chai. Her article, written in Portuguese language, was published in VivaMais magazine (N1) at end May 2009 and is about how to lose weight by drinking masala chai. If you are interested to find out more about her article, you can use this Google translate tool for translation.

(N1: VivaMais is a weekly magazine in Brazil. It features many interesting issues for woman aged between 18-30 years old such as fashion, diets, healthy, economy/ money, house, family… etc.)

Ligia was kind enough to email me a soft copy of her article so that I can share it with my readers.  She even sent me a hard copy of the magazine for my record.

If you are interested to make your own chai masala, refer to this post for step-by-step guide.

      Anggie: Many many thanks to you!! Yes, it is an Indian tea. I agree that tea which contains caffeine is not recommended for your situation now. How about those teas made from flowers? 😉
