Chai Escape

Sitting at a cafe a Kuala Lumpur a few years back I had what felt like a life-changing moment.  One of those small details of life that becomes a total game changer.  It was something so simple, but something I knew would become part of my life from that point on. .

 A steamy, frothy, Chai tea latte.  I fell in love with the spicy-sweet flavors, the creamy finish, and that it brought just the right amount of pep to my afternoon.  The taste perfectly captured the trip we were on through southern Asia: vibrant yet calming, playful, and perfectly exotic.  We'd spent the day exploring the street markets of KL, a true melting pot of Asian cultures, and every time I taste Chai now I'm taken back to that day and our charming cafe beside the fountains - our backpacks filled with sachets of local spices and the cinnamon we'd bartered for along the way.

This post was sponsored by Starbucks as part of an Influencer Activation. I received compensation and complimentary products to facilitate my review.

When I learned that TAZO®, the maker of my favorite white tea, was introducing TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods that can be brewed at home in my Keurig® brewer, I was instantly excited.  What a fantastic way to take a miniature trip down memory lane, without having to leave home.  An escape to that carefree, adventurous afternoon, sipped as I pick up toys in the living room (again), dodge legos, and juggle grown-up life.

TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods are made from milk, tea leaves and spices.  Its a creamy blend of black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and vanilla flavor inspired by a 5,000 year old of Indian tradition.  

To celebrate its launchTAZO® has partnered with New York Times Bestselling author and host Padma Lakshmi - lover of tea and chai.  Padma has put together a great collection of recipes that pair perfectly with a cup of chai.   Want to try for yourself?

 Thank you to Starbucks for sponsoring today's conversation!

Is there a special food or drink that takes you back in time to a great memory?
