What illlness does Chai tea help with?

Chai tea usually contains the following spices:

* Cardamom * Cinnamon * Ginger * Star anise * Peppercorn * Cloves. From this list, I would say that tea would be very beneficial to anyone who was suffering with diabetes. In some areas, liquorice root is also added which will soothe the kidneys. This would also help a diabetes-sufferer, because kidney failure is a routine symptom of diabetes.
