This is my new summer drink from Starbucks. I love getting a grande coffee frap, with 2 pumps of the chai concentrate. Tastes like heaven and gets me going during the afternoon slump.

Cofftea

I like also adding mocha, vanilla, and caramel syrups. I also prefer blended lattes vs. frappuccinos…. although I’m not sold on either yet when I want chai since I don’t like their concentrate. I wish there was a way to use loose leaf- or at least a powdered mix.

Wow, interesting idea. I usually can’t do anything sweeter than an iced americano with no sweetener ;) But I am intrigued.

Cofftea

“I usually can’t do anything sweeter than an iced americano with no sweetener” which isn’t sweetened at all. Funny:)

Lisbet

Exactly. The other day I wound up really enjoying Honest Tea’s bottled iced teas though and was surprised to notice that the variety I was drinking had agave nectar in it. And the one I have in the fridge has honey. Huh! Guess I can’t write off sweetener in iced teas!

Cofftea

I only like sweeteners that add flavor (i.e. maple sugar in maple tea, chai flavored honey). These syrups would also qualify (although I do not like the chai concentrate)… but then again something like mocha syrup is normally so rich it’s not very sweet (I like dark chocolate anyway) and caramel syrups have savory qualities due to the caramelized sugar.

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.
