Reduces Nausea

Chai tea typically contains ginger, also known as Zingiber officinale, which boosts the flavor and aroma of the tea. Other than improving the quality of taste, recently conducted studies have found new uses for ginger. In some tests, the herb is considered more effective than a placebo in preventing nausea and vomiting.4Ernst, E, and Pittler MH. ‘Efficacy of Ginger for Nausea and Vomiting: a Systematic Review of Randomized Clinical Trials.’ British Journal of Anaesthesia, U.S. National Library of Medicine, Mar. 2000, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10793599/

Ginger's health uses include managing nausea arising from pregnancy and relief from mild gastrointestinal infections and vertigo. It may also work to prevent nausea after surgery and vomiting from chemotherapy.5Ginger .’ Ginger - Health Encyclopedia - University of Rochester Medical Center, www.urmc.rochester.edu/encyclopedia/content.aspx?contenttypeid=19&contentid=Ginger
