If you're like me, each fall you get hit up by a few of your friends' or neighbors' children selling everything from wrapping paper and cookie dough to candles, magazine subscriptions and more, all to raise funds for the local school. The little neighbor girls have sold my husband various cheesecakes and cookie doughs through the years, and he generally takes the hits here at home. At the office, our co-workers are always very low-key about the things their kids are selling, so I was actually quite *eager* to buy one of the items I saw in a catalog a few months ago, this Very Heavenly Vanilla Chai mix.
"Fireside Favorites" is a new name in tea to me, and I was curious to try this chai mix. If schools would sell more teas, I for one would be much more likely to be a returning customer! So how was the chai?
I am very happy to report it had a great chai flavor, much more rich and thick than I would have hoped for since you make it with water and not milk. This large (20-ounce) bag was $14 and makes 20 servings. That's significantly cheaper than buying 20 cups of chai at Starbucks—and hopefully it results in something nice for my young friend Grace's school as well!
