Chai Tea Friday! (with a twist)

Peppermint Cocoa Chai

It’s Friday which means it’s time to brew up some chai.

Today we crushed some cocoa nibs and added some peppermint and stevia to our Chai tea blend.  The result is an amazingly mellow, cooling mint, spicy chai which really matches the mood today.

Chai isn’t just for lattes

Don’t get me wrong here, I love a chai tea latte, especially when it gets dirty with a shot of espresso, but sometimes I don’t want that heavy of a drink.  This is one of the reasons we like to experiment with our Chai tea blend and see what we can come up with sans steamed milk and foam.

More teas and things on Saturday

We are really looking forward to attending this year’s Aberdeen Founders Day Parade and Street Fair.  We will have some of our loose tea as well as a few of our custom blends,   We are also bringing our remedies, essential oils, and other healing products.

There will be a lot of other great vendors, music, and food. Hope to see you there!

Chai Tea Friday

It’s Friday so that means we are brewing Chai tea today.  We decided to go a little outside the box and added some cocoa nibs along with the fresh mandarin peel.  The effect is a little unexpected as it tames the spiciness of the chai just a bit and finishes with a delightful citrus note.

We are also filling out our shelves with more bulk oils and just added some Myrrh essential oil to our collection.
