Spiced Chai Tea

It seems to be popping up alot lately or becoming more popular.

What does it taste like? Does it taste good?

It's got spices in it almost like Pumpkin Pie Spice. It's my favorite thing EVER......
It's a tea extract (I guess) mixed with spices and honey (the non-LC version) blended with milk, frothed up. I found DaVinci's Chai (sugar-free) that I mix with heavy cream and water to make when I need a little something-something. I don't know anyone who I've had try it who doesn't like it. Good stuff.

You can also buy chai teabags - I buy the Stash Decaf Chai. Brew up a good strong cup, leaving room for a good splash of half & half or cream, and sweeten to taste with your choice of AS.

It's really good, very reminiscent of the VERY high-carb stuff I used to buy at Starbucks!

I buy the teabags online (do a search) but I noticed some of my local markets carry the Stash brand nowadays - if they don't have the Chai flavor, ask your store manager to get it for you!

It's a very nice spicy flavor. My husband doesn't care for it because of the clove aspect of the spiciness, but I think it's great stuff!

Sounds like something I'd like - Do you drink it hot?

Another really excellent Chai Tea Bag is the Celestial Seasonings Mountain Chai...it even comes in a DeCaf version! I like mine with a bit of Splenda and some Cream. If you like it iced, I'd brew it double strength and mix with Splenda (or a flavored SF Syrup) and Cream, than, serve over ice...Mmmmm!

I drink the Lipton Spicy Chai w/ cream and splenda when I'm in a hurry, but for really great chai I brew my own. It is so rich tasting and good. I have posted the recipe in the past and will see if I can find it and bump it up.

I buy my Stash Chai Spice at my local Kroger. I've tried other brands, but Stash is by far the best. I even got my other family members hooked on it.

My box says it has black teas, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, clove and natural flavors of cinnamon, clove and cardamon in it. So if you love these ingredients you'll love this tea.
