drank Masala Chai by Samovar
260 tasting notes

I stuck some of this in the fridge the other day and I’m drinking it now.

I’ve said that I don’t what I did before I found tea. That’s made even more true when I factor in chai.

Smooth and creamy, when it first hits my tongue it almost tastes like chocolate milk. Then the spices make themselves present and it switches gears from “ahhhhh,” to “ooooooh!” Add to that the satisfaction of having made it yourself, and you’ve got yourself a nice cup of Masala Crack.

Mmm, crack. I want to take some chai, some ice, salt and an ice cream maker and just kinda see what happens.

Auggy

Uhm, the connection there being you are drinking it iced and the one time I did that it was so rich and desserty and wonderful I wanted to make ice cream. But you cannot see inside my mind so you’re probably like ‘I post about tea, she posts about ice cream. Thanks’.

Either you’re not as crazy as you think or we’re both certifiable, because I definitely followed that.

Cofftea

I followed it too. Chocolate milk in chai is yummy:)

pointedview

That sounds wholly delicious (both the regular cup and Auggy’s ice cream idea).

@pointedview I’m a huge fan of chai in general. It’s excellent hot and cold. As ice cream, I can only imagine what it would be like. Mind-blowing, I’m sure.

If it snows here, maybe I’ll try a little mixing.

I’m a huge fan of Starbucks’ iced chai lattes in the summertime so this sounds delicious to me.

I really am going to have to try one of those one of these days. I’ve heard them mentioned enough that I want to give it a go.

Jillian

Just make sure you ask for an Iced Chai Latte, not a Chai Frappachino, the latter is SO sickly sweet it’s barely drinkable.

Cofftea

Chai granita!

Cofftea

I always get my dirty no water chai lattes w/ bags and not the concentrate. Any ideas for how to do this when I order mine blended iced? I’ve always done the concentrate for those… :(
