Brewed up 12oz with 2 full leaf sachets, 2 tsp sugar and 1 tsp milk. Great pairing with my cinnamon swirl coffeecake this morning. Wish I had more coffeecake! I like this Chai blend more and more. It is my staple and I haven’t found a better replacement yet. Yum!

hmmm… 1tsp milk? I either go 1:1 or 2:1 milk to water ratio- doesn’t it just taste like insanely watery spiced milk then? For the longest time I even thought 1:1 tasted watery.

I know I like this tea black, but wanted to try it with a splash of milk and some sugar like I drink my Earl Grey. I haven’t enjoyed the stovetop chai recipe with the few chai’s I’ve tried. Although the method made my Adagio Oriental Spice tea taste amazing. So just experimenting to find what I like. Oh, and I guess it helped that the only milk I had was half and half so it was deliciously creamy. And I have issues with dairy so I don’t like to do full chai lattes. Sorry if that was too long, and hope it made some sense. I’m in an allergy haze today.

“the only milk I had was half and half”… I love how you consider half and half milk:) Yes, that would make a difference. I sometimes add 1tsp-1TB of coffee creamer to my chais when I don’t have milk. I can definitely see why you wouldn’t want to overdo dairy. I just personally don’t like the “splash method”. I’m currently in love w/ Fat Free Smart Balance milk. I was raised on skim so the texture never bothered me, but this makes it so creamy dreamy delicious. They do have a lactose free version you might be interested in.

I’ve never tried lactose free milk. I’ve had soy and non dairy creamers, and occasionally (on days off, like today) drink the milk and put up with it. I may have to try that. Is Smart Balance the one people were saying has fish oil in it due to the omega-3? If so can you taste it?

Cofftea

There is a very light “different” taste and aroma to it if you drink it plain, but it does NOT taste fishy like pu erh, fish, or even fish pills. I do not like regular milk plain, but don’t like this milk less than regular milk, so that’s saying something. It’s so faint that I’m not sure you could detect it if you didn’t know it was there or if you did, I don’t think you could definite it. I’ve had it (in a 1:1 ratio to water) in coffee, chai, and chocolate pu erh and have found it nothing short of wonderful. And I haven’t burped it up- and I always burp up fish and fish pills.

Thanks for telling me more about it. I’ll have to look for it at my local grocer’s. I don’t do milk plain either. Just in recipes and in a few teas. Glad to know that it doesn’t have the same affect on you as fish/fish pills. That helps calm my fears a bit.

mmm chai

Meghann M

I think I need more chai. Once I get in a chai kick it stays for awhile. Ebbs and flows though as I haven’t had it in about a month!

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
