Tea Of The Week




On a cold day nothing is better than sitting by the fireplace, with a blanket, a good book, and a nice hot cup of tea. This week has been pretty cold and extremely windy so I wanted a tea that was rich and warm. Stash's Chai Spice Black Tea is what has been hitting the spot this week. This tea is AMAZING it is very flavorful and is what I expect from a chai. The spices are very potent it is not a subtle tea so if you don't like the taste of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, spices similar to them, then please do not try this tea.
I love me some tea, but I am NOT one of those people who can drink tea plain. For this specific tea I love to let it cool a little bit than put some honey in it, and a little bit of fresh lemon juice. If I have a day that I feel like I am getting a little sick I will put some fresh ginger in it and it really gives it a nice kick. If you like your chai to be more of a creamy tea than milk and stevia go great with this tea and will give it that sweet thicker taste you are hoping for. I can always find this tea at my local grocery store, but if for some reason you can’t I will post a link for you guys because trust me it’s a great tea. It is more expensive online than it is at the grocery story I will put that out there, but if you cannot find it at the store I would recommend ordering it because its that good. I must tell you that I will be doing a recipe post for a pumpkin spice chai tea that will go PERFECT with a book this time of year!
