Chai Tea

Thursday, July 28, 2011



Lately the weather is playing tricks on us (how is it at your end?). Each day starts off with a beautiful sunshine and gradually gets cooler and rainier. So last night we had enough of it all and I made a pot of spicy chai tea after yet another cardigan-wearing day. A few of our friends came over and we spent the evening sipping and catching up on Curb Your Enthusiasm. It's hilariously-cringy, have you seen it? Btw: Sara's recipe is my favourite! I just use soy milk instead of the regular milk. Also, for those who are at luck with the weather: you can totally drink it cold as well, just chill the pitcher for a few hours before drinking. It's delicious:). Darlings, do you drink tea? What's your favourite? xo

People back home cannot start their day with tea ... summer or winters. Though I am not a tea person at all. Just love coffee! :) Also, shared this on twitter as well but Tea in Hindi is called Chai. Don't know why Starbucks calls it Chai Tea and not everyone in the world calls it that! Thought will let you know. I hope you don't mind! :o) Have a beautiful day!

Thanks for letting me know, Tanvi. I'm always so interested in different cultures. I think the word chai exists in Russian as my grandpa uses it as well.

Being half-British, I am obsessed with tea. I drink it constantly. Since moving to Colombia, tea is hard to find but my lovely London friends sent me huge packs of it to last me ages so now I'm happy again. My usual is standard English Breakfast with a splash of milk and one sugar. Buut I love a good Moroccan mint after a meal or if I want to relax - jasmine or camomile is great. Another favorite is bizarre but delicious - popcorn tea or lemongrass tea, both from TeaPigs.

Christianna said...

Oh, chai tea always makes me think of this one time, where me and friends made some while listening, rapping and dancing to Kanye West! I know there is a vid somewhere, I need to find it :)

Stephanie said...

I loooove chai, it's definitely my favorite! I ran out of coffee this week, so chai has been my hot, caffeinated beverage of choice the past few days. :-)

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

I'm a mint tea girl. It's so refreshing and great for an upset tummy! :) Although, I DO love chai. How could you not love chai?
:) xo

Diana Mieczan said...

Caroline, thanks for the tip about mint tea:) I didn't know that.

Diana Mieczan said...

Christianna, sounds like such a fun memories:)

Christine said...

Chai is delicious, I love that mix of spices in just about everything (supper, dessert, tea). Thanks for the recipe tip, I'd love to try making my own. If you can't make it from scracth though, a decent concetrate is this one: http://www.rishi-tea.com/chaiwithroots/
And it supports Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program which is a bonus.

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh my goodness, Christine, that tea sounds magical! Thank you for the link:) Totally going to try it.
