Chai, that sometimes overlooked flavor, can add a distinct warm flavor and depth to many dishes. Originating in India, although it's now commonplace in cafes across the world, chai  is a flavored drink created by brewing black tea with a blend of herbs and spices. Much-loved spices like ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves are commonly included in the mix. Take these earthy tones, which exude comfort, and enjoy them in non-beverage forms like pie, banana bread, oatmeal, or a marinade.
