Good morning! Have you had your coffee, tea or warm lemon water yet?
Last fall I went to the Celestial Seasonings HQ to learn all about tea. I have been drinking their tea daily ever since – my favorites are the Sleepytime line, which I have almost every night, and the Sweet Harvest Pumpkin – plus all of the holiday flavors (duh). Today I get to share with you three new products that they shared with us last fall but we had to keep locked in the vault until now!
Introducing Celestial Seasoning’s new chai teas! I absolutely LOVE chai spice, so I am crazy about these. They are inspired by the secret menus of the world’s best coffeehouses – the Dirty Chai being a popular special request as a blend of chai tea and espresso. The new products come in several varieties: Celestial Lattes, which are available in bottles and concentrates, and Teahouse Chai Teas, available in tea bags. Look for them at Target, Giant, Harris Teeter among other retailers.
The Dirty Chai tea rocks! I love it with just a splash of half and half. The tea bag is filled with masala chai spiked with a shot of espresso. Other Celestial Teahouse new flavors include Coconut Thai Chai, Mountain Chai and Decaf Mountain Chai.
The lattes are sold as ready-to-drink bottles and as concentrates and come in four different flavors:
• Dirty Chai – lively masala chai spiked with a shot of bold espresso
• The Godfather – authentic masala chai with bold espresso and rich cocoa
• Mountain Chai – a traditional masala chai with ginger, cardamom and cloves
• Matcha Green – a smooth blend featuring traditional matcha green tea powder
The bottles will be convenient while out and about, but the concentrate is a great way to make your own lattes at home. The concentrate has 60 calories and 14 grams of sugar in a half cup, so it is sweetened, but the good news is you can customize your drink to your own taste and needs.
This flavor is The Godfather – authentic masala chai with bold espresso and cocoa. Pour in as much as you like and add any milk of your choice! It can be served either hot or cold! Seeing as it’s a steamy July morning, I went with cold : )
This morning I had a cup of Dirty Chai tea plus I shared the Godfather latte with Matt. Served with scrambled eggs, toast with butter and jam and blackberries!
Finally….a blooper. This is what happens to depth perception when you’re looking through a camera lens!!
