I have to behave myself because I am surrounded by people, but in my mind, my arms are flailing and I’m swooning all thanks to this wonderful chai which has been generously topped off with a ton of ground pistachios this time around. Such a crazy evening leading to this chai, which I planned on having five hours ago.

My mom is out and about and took the only keys to the apartment with her, and I decided that instead of being a loser trapped inside, I’ll venture out and have a chai (and try their newer coconut chicken curry wrap) since I have not been to a Remedy since October. Walked past it to notice that it was ridiculously packed, so I wandered around for a while wondering where oh where to go? I’m famished, I need sustenance and I’ll allow myself to have a cheat day, so finally I went to a sandwich place. Had a fantastic chicken-spiced-apple-Brie-fig-jam-thing-of-glory-on-rye. With a side of chili for extra protein. Score. Ok, so now I’m full but I need to kill a few more hours and this place is closing at 8. Hmm, ok, then I might as well head to Tim Hortons, partake in roll up the rim (0/1 damn!). As it got a little later, sketchballs started hanging around and being sketchballs. Have to pee from large double-double. Sketchy people in washroom. Ok, Sobeys down the street it is. Get there only to discover it closed over an hour earlier due to Family Day. Ugh. Fine. Walk to Safeway only to discover that their public washroom doesn’t exist anymore. Seriously? So I book it to Remedy, which I know has a non-sketchy washroom, is now a lot quieter, and now I’m finally enjoying this glorious chai. Trufax.

The prominent star anise will always make my day. Half sweet, soy milk, and rose petals to accompany those ground pistachios. I even redeemed one of my free drinks on my stamp card since I already spent enough today. Normally, I get the entire card stamped out before redeeming any of my free drinks but not this time. Lesson learned after misplacing my last stamp card which had four free drinks on it. Tsk tsk.

Long story short, delicious free chai at my favourite cafe!

While in Edmonton the past few days, Remedy Cafe’s Kasmire Chai (their spelling) has come up several times as a ‘must-try’. So today I found one said café (there are three in town), that happens to be just a few blocks from my hotel. I arrive, ask about the chai, and if I can buy some to take home with me.

“No, it’s a super-secret recipe, and it’s simmered for days in-house only”.

Well, crap. So I vow to come back after dinner – they’re open until midnight on a Sunday!! – and try out this infamous chai. I see signs on the walls saying it’s decaf and has nuts (pistachios) in it as warnings. Most of the people in the place are ordering/drinking the chai, and it’s surprisingly busy.

When I return, I order it “normal” (normal milk and sweetener). I find out later I can have it with several different types of milk, and any variation of sweetness. I do find it too sweet with the simple syrup used, but otherwise? Wowza.

I can see rose petals in the liquid itself, and eat them – surprising for me since I normally avoid rose petals in tea. I can also see and eat chunks of pistachios in every sip, which seem to add to the experience in very good ways. The rest I can only guess – I’m thinking standard chai spices, zero tea. Some call it “spicy” and while I can see why they’d say that (there is a lot of spice in this) it’s a 1 on a scale of 1-10 for spicy heat, like chili’s.

I really, really wish I could get some to take home with me, it’s that good and unusual. I may need to try and see if I can concoct something similar at home.

I know, right? Remedy is my favourite place to hang out and eat in Edmonton. I practically lived there while I went to U of A. This is my absolute favourite chai in the world, and they’re the reason why I’m so damn picky about chai. I’m glad you were able to try it.

MissB

It really is quite amazing, and I’m bringing my friend tomorrow to try it too. He works near the downtown one, so I may be enabling a new tea drinker to shy away from their coffee addiction a bit. ;) I also saw on their website they’ll be selling it in restaurants soon, so I’m guessing/hoping they start selling it loose as well.

Fjellrev

I doubt they’d ever sell it loose. They used to make a concentrate, and you could buy a jug of it. Not sure if they do that anymore. I remember the owner saying that this one has something like thirty different spices in it, and they import them from India.

If you like Indian food, I hiiiiighly recommend the wraps. Drool. Palak paneer wrap and a Kashmire chai. OMG, my dream meal.

Sami Kelsh

Dammit, why isn’t this available where I live? Why didn’t I know about this place when I was visiting Edmonton?

MissB

Sounds like a plan for later today. Thanks! :) Sami, I only found out about it by asking a lot of people, “Where should I go while I’m here?” and it kept coming up.
