Yogic Chai's Original Masala Chai

When I got invited to sample some of the award-winning Original Masala Chai from Yogic Chai, I of course said yes but I must admit I thought, "Chai is chai. I'm sure it will be fine." I couldn't imagine it would taste very different from other chai teas I have tried, and oh, was I wrong!

First, this "proprietary blend" from Yogic Chai just looks so very inviting. The ingredients include Fair Traded Organic Assam Tea, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Green Cardamom, Organic Cloves and Organic Ginger. When I opened the bag, I got an absolutely intoxicating whiff of the super spicy blend, and I loved it!

To make the chai, I added a teaspoon of the blend to 1-1/2 cups of half-water, half-milk, and boiled it for 5 minutes before straining off the chai. I opted for skim milk, and I was absolutely delighted with the rich flavor in my mug. This chai was so supremely easy to make, yet it had that sophisticated, rich chai taste I associate with specialty beverage shops. Count me a fan! And if you want to try some for yourself, visit the Yogic Chai website here.
