Grabbed one of these today while at the grocery store. I wasn’t going to get anything but then I saw the sign and couldn’t resist trying this one.

They didn’t ask me so I assume it comes as a lightly sweetened latte.

I suspect it is a powdered mix since the closer I got to the bottom of the cup, the more flavorful it got, as if it wasn’t fully mixed. It also took very little time to make, which also lends heft to my suspicion about a mix. Fully mixed or not, I was super impressed that they didn’t make it with water so hot I couldn’t immediately drink it. Most coffee places make their hot drinks with near boiling water and I have to wait 5 minutes or more with the lid off before I can come close to being able to drink. Not a good thing for an instant gratification type of gal. I have patience when I know I’m getting good quality tea. If it’s a coffee shop tea, I’m not expecting much so I want to just be able to drink it. :)

All that said, it was pretty tasty. One of the better coffee shop chais I’ve had. I’d get it again if I’m out on a cold day.

I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :) I am also the proprietor of Tea-Historic, a tiny online dinosaur themed tea shop.
