One sip of a classic TAZO® Chai Latte made effortlessly in my Keurig® and I enter a much needed world of true relaxation. It’s been a long week yet I am calmed by the rich flavors deep within this hot latte. In the original TAZO® Chai flavor, the warmth of cinnamon combine with cardamom and ginger in perfect balance with no one spice overpowering the other. There’s even the ideal hint of sweetness which enhances the sophisticated taste. Though I’m only in my kitchen, I feel like royalty enjoying someplace exotic, relaxing and soaking in some spectacular view. I can’t wait to wind down my Friday evening with a warm and soothing TAZO® Chai Latte.
Since we’re tea drinkers in my house, I let my teenage daughter Sofia in on the sampling as well. She loves the Keurig® since it’s so easy to use and was eager to try something new. Upon her first taste, she remarked that she never particularly liked Chai tea until she tried the classic TAZO® Chai Latte. She slurped it down as if she was a toddler licking a soft serve ice cream cone. As she enjoyed her chai tea, the look of contentment on her face spoke for itself. We were both quick fans of the TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods.
As I sipped my hot cup of Vanilla Caramel TAZO® Chai Latte I should have been sitting fireside with Frosty the Snowman playing in the background. The taste just begs for the holiday season where flavors and aromas are our comfort and joy. This warm cup of deliciousness is like dessert in a cup but without the calories. It’s both filling and satisfying enough to quench that night-time sweet craving. As the palate is pleased, the belly is warmed offering a much-needed soothing relaxation just before bed. It’s quite nice to be transported to a jolly time of year when in actuality we’re about to begin the summer season.
With a simple two-step process mixing a packet of powder with a K-Cup® pod of hot tea, I was able to taste real milk, black tea and pungent spices. It’s amazing how two simple packages can combine with the help of some hot brewed water brewed in the Keurig® to recreate flavors which have been deeply rooted in Indian history for thousands of years. In fact, I learned that TAZO® has partnered with the New York Times best selling author Padma Lakshmi, of an Indian heritage where tea and chai have always played an important role in her life. Padma has spoken at length about the balance of flavors and it’s no surprise that she would partner with a brand like TAZO® which has perfected a sweet and spicy balance. In fact, Padma has developed some recipes which pair perfectly with a cup of TAZO® chai Latte. You can learn more by visiting: TAZO.com/chai
