drank Tazo Chai by Tazo

It’s much easier to bring tea bags to work than loose leaf. There’s never a lull and no one likes an over steeped leaf.
Today in the mad rush I was in I grabbed a couple bags of this and ran out the door. Around 3pm I hit a wall and decided to brew up a pick me up. Started the kettle, dropped a cube of plantation sugar in my cup, opened the fridge. . . No milk?!!!!!!!
French vanilla international delight coffee creamer… Doesn’t sound too bad with Chai.
Only problem encountered was the fact that this tea is overwhelmingly gingered. I got punched in the mouth with ginger.
In the end it tasted like ginger snaps, but I couldn’t decide if I liked it or not so I wont rate it yet.

the french vanilla could have thrown the flavor off. If you drink Milk try it with a high fat milk (3% is good, 2% is acceptable). the fat makes it taste better, and sugar brings out the spices nicely.
I have tried it with one percent once… dumb idea it was horrible, like drinking peppered water.
try it again and see if you like it. it’s best hot.

Bio

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than a good cup of tea and the company of my dogs.
I’m a down to earth person very true to my Virgo roots. I own two Boxers, Octane (male, 6 years) and Rally Rims (female, 3 years). I do not breed or show, they are an integral part of my family. I also have a loving husband in the Canadian Military and a beautiful daughter who amazes me with her wit and intelligence everyday.
I love Autumn, for it’s colour, smell and general ambiance.
I’m just a girl, looking for a good cup of tea.
