Excerpted from Super Powders by Katrine van Wyk.
The spices found in traditional chai tea are warming, comforting, and exciting all at once. This version also includes some great skin-benefiting ingredients: pearl for that glowing-from-within skin, collagen to plump and increase elasticity, and maca for hormone balance and energy. The spices are anti-inflammatory and blood sugar-balancing, and the heat from the pepper and ginger are great for boosting your digestive fire.
