I feel for those of you sweltering in the heat! Must be awful!
Up here in the clouds all is calm, all is bright…(wrong time of year..oops). The weather is nice and cool. Gentle rain expected tomorrow maybe. All weather in Northern Colorado is MAYBE. The Rocky Mountains can change the weather and like a Giant Magician laying down on his back…they wave a Magic Wand and Prest-o Chang-o the rain is gone.

Therefore, I can drink Chai! It’s not too hot!

My evening brew created by Stacy at Butiki is straightforward. I wanted a Chai that was upfront, bold but uncomplicated, without a twist of some exotic addition. Just a good quality, spicy Chai. I saw a special deal on this Chai when I was ordering the Blue Nettle Green Tea and Puerh…(love good deals) and added it to my order. Glad I did!

This Chai has cinnamon and clove…cardamon…pepper and a nice black tea base. The spices are just right and not overdone. I hate a spice level that becomes bitter when heated…so blechy! This is good! This is a strong brew though…made for sweetening and milk, soy, coconut, moon juice or whatever you put in to make it good…RUM!

I like this…Chai…um…good!

Grandmother to 3 teenaged girls and 5 young boys. (we all drink tea!) I began teatime in the Summer over 30 years ago when my children were little. We took a break from play for tea and snacks every day. My children loved tea time.
There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
Colorado State University is a mile from my home and the Rocky Mountains begin to climb at the end of my street. The climate is semi-arid with LOTS OF SUN AT 5000 feet. (Heavy Winter snows start in higher elevations). Living my whole life in Northern California (Silicon Valley) I have to admit that I LOVE IT HERE!!!
I attend a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy cooking ethnic foods (all kinds). I am disabled with Migraines and Fibromyalgia.
