My New Sweet Obsession
I know it may sound lame because it's made with decaf black tea (with added red rooibos tea) and because I'm using almond milk (should I try a non-dairy creamer in my chai if I want to keep it vegan? suggestions appreciated), but...
It is really delicious. If you're not a big coconut fan (I only like coconut on certain things), I must say that you can barely taste the coconut that they've added to this particular blend and it has just the right spiciness and body. I drank a lot of chai in Florida (this one, provided by my SIL, thanks!), but I'm not used to caffeine and had headaches for a few days at the end of our week there, so I need to drink decaf chai. I know Tazo sells it too, and I'm planning to check it out.
I'm actually buying the spices to try to make chai from scratch. I'll try to blog that if I do it, OK? Meanwhile, I have a lot of grading to do for tomorrow, so I should probably go make some of it right now!
I'm a Brazilian expatriate, living in the U.S. since 1996 with my husband and two sons (born in March 2002 and May 2004). I'm a mother, first and foremost, -- mamãe in my mother-tongue, hence the (e) of the blog title -- but after "ten years and two sons" I finally finished my Ph.D. in literature in 2008. After six years away from teaching (including a year home/cyber schooling my sons - 2009-10), I'm finally back in higher-education. I've been blogging here for eight years, so welcome to my site and feel free to stay for a while and look around. Our lives are a roller coaster, never lacking in ups and downs! ;-)
