'Chai' is not a flavour of tea, it just simply means tea in Hindi. So calling it 'chai tea' is totally redundant, amirite?

SAME WITH ME. I tell people that it's either chai, or tea. Chai tea is like saying 'tea tea'. They say it's just because I'm brown, but I can't be the ONLY one.

Chai also means tea in Russian.

@DurzoBlint Chai also means tea in Russian.

I thought "vodka" was tea in Russian.

Or MLB Baseball.

I voted No Way because it's not only in Hindi. Caj (pronounced the same way) also means tea in the Serbo-Croation language. & I bet some others as well.

Why would you vote no way because the person didn't know that it wasn't only in that language? It's still stupid, and redundant.

@tea_ Because that's what the whole post was implying.

That "Chai" means tea in Hindi? No, it's implying that saying "chai tea" is redundant.

I know many countries use the same word, I was just making it more general for the amirite public who may not know those languages as well. Sorry, I guess

Serb-Croation is the official language for the Former Yugoslavia countries, but yeah I thought it was like that for Slavs but I wasn't sure so I wasn't going to write it in case I was wrong :)

Lol the official language is called Serbo-Croation but then we split it up because of our dialects.

Someone needs to Tell some tea companies that because I have Chai tea in my cupboard >.<

Chai at Starbucks tastes nothing like authentic chai :/ In fact, chai doesn't taste a lot like tea either.
