Chai-like



I love LOVE chai tea. Good chai- not the icky sweet junk they serve at Starbucks. Bleck! So this is not exactly the best chai ever. But it is a low-fat, low-cal, low-sugar alternative to make at home when you are freezing because it "feels like November" when it is only the start of October. But I digress... Steep one of these decaf bags for several minutes in a cup of hot water. Then add two teaspoons of the pumpkin spice creamer. Listen, outside of chai, I think cream in tea is gag-worthy. But it really gives is a bit of sweetness and spice without being crazy over the top. An excellent bedtime treat!

I LOVE Chai tea too!

I used to work at a coffee shop in college that had the best chai tea, I still buy it from them in bulk to this day!

I'm going to try this for sure!

:D

Definitely have to try that. Chai is my favorite ever.

Have you tried chai w/ soy milk? Soy chai lattes are the best. I don't think you have to like soy in general either, it's just an amazing combo.

Now you have to, HAVE to try Twinings new Chai teas. Not the vanilla... not the funky... just the one in the red box. It is the best I promise you!!!

I LOVE that same brand of chai too! I actually drink the vanilla chai, it's sweet and yummy. I actually can't believe it's a tea bag from how creamy and delicious it is - I drink it every morning with a splash of skim milk. LOVE!

Have you tried Oregon Chai? Their concentrate is awesome (and cheap!) and available in decaf, peppermint, and vanilla. Sugar free too.
