let's talk about chai!

i just ordered coconut chai from zhena's gypsy tea, which i cannot wait to try.

i also like to make chai lattes from this "copycat oregon chai" recipe that was posted on VRF (by quagga?)

I recently splurged on rishi tea masala chai. ... -chai.html

It is so good, especially made with So Delicious French Vanilla coconut creamer. I used half that and half almond milk for the milk part of the recipe. And look, they have have recipe recipe chai flan which I will try to veganize.

The company has several teas I want to try. Like chocolate chai.

I just finished my can of zhena's gypsy coconut chai a week ago! It was pretty good, though I admit I thought the coconut tasted a little artificial. Maybe I just wasn't used to it in my chai.

I almost got the rishi masala chai to replace the coconut chai (I drink tea nonstop at work) but decided to branch out from chai for a while. I haven't seen the chocolate chai, but I'm going to keep an eye out for it now!

Ugh. Coconut? Vanilla? :mean: Not in my chai, thanks. I recently bought and hated: Tazo and Stash. Both contain anise. Ack! It makes the masala chai taste like medicine!

I designate myself the resident cranky masala chai* purist. Bah! Humbug!
