Strange how we encourage our young to try new things yet cling on to our own old habits. I started drinking tea as at about four. I treasure mine of Mrs. Harley, the old Scot who sang “The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond” as she played piano then read the tea leaves; of Aunt Betty, who took toddler me to my first Chinese restaurant and the ever filled pot of tea we shared; and of tea lover me foolishly insisting I loathed chai. My error was I did not know chai means tea. I thought it meant with milk. Glad a wise gourmet straightened me out. I may sound repetitive but I must correct my misspeak and admit that I really love chai tea.
Recently I was sent a sampler of Chai Diaries teas and something for every discerning palate and every taste:
Organic Masala Chai – Indian black tea with ginger root, cinnamon chips, green cardamom, and natural ginger, cinnamon, and vanilla flavors
Apple Cider – Indian black tea blended with hibiscus, vanilla, cinnamon pieces, and red apple flavor
Blood Orange – orange peel, hibiscus, rosehips, apple pieces, safflowers, and rose petals with orange, vanilla, and lemon flavor
Earl Grey Imperial – Darjeeling black tea with natural bergamot oil, cornflowers, and safflowers
Kashmiri Green Chai – organic green tea, almonds, cinnamon chips, clodes, cardamom seeds, crushed green cardamom with almond and cinnamon flavor
Coconut Chai – Indian Black tea, ginger root, cinnamon, shredded coconut, ginger with coconut and vanilla flavors
Chai is the best, and Chai Diaries is the best of the best. Chai Diaries has it all–natural, organic, kosher, full leaf pyramid tea bags, loose leaf specialty teas, and chai mixes. It is truly premium tea because it doesn’t skimp on ingredients. Taste an infusion of its fresh fruit, botanicals, and organics in base tea then decide for yourself.
