I thought I'd give you all a few days to recoup from the holidays. It all sort of hits you at once. The shopping, the wrapping, the visiting, the drinking; it just gets to be a bit overwhelming. It’s like you need a vacation. Well that’s what I’m giving you, a vacation from recipes. I really wanted to start this new year off telling you more about one of our best products, Big Train Chai.
What is chai, or chai tea as some say? For many English speakers outside the regions of the Middle East and Asia, the term "chai" is synonymous with "masala chai". The redundant term chai tea is sometimes used to indicate spiced milky tea. Numerous coffee houses use the term chai latte for their version to indicate that the steamed milk of a normal cafe latte is being flavored with a spiced tea concentrate instead of with espresso. Big Train is a leading seller of Chai with numerous flavors of powdered and even an organic liquid. A short description of a few of their flavors follows:
Vanilla Chai has beamed itself to the top of the list right next to Spiced Chai for a satisfying year-round drink. This chai tones down other spices to make room for cinnamon and vanilla, which helps it stand apart from the other Big Train flavors offered. The softer spices appeal to those who have more sensitive taste buds and enjoy a drink that keeps them wanting more, down to the last drop.
Spiced Chai remains one of the most popular selling flavors throughout the entire year. It boasts its spice-infused blend no matter what condition it’s in: Hot, Iced, or Blended! Cinnamon and spice with hints of honey and ginger allow this cup of tea to be your cup of tea all year round. We’ve heard many say it even tastes like Christmas!
Chocolate Chai is hot chocolate’s better half. Kids and adults alike love this flavor because of its little kid taste with the big kid attitude. It’s chocolate at its best with a delightful taste of tea and spice. With less calories, it will also cub the choc-o-holic’s daily carving for sweet treats and therefore, less guilt!
