*honk your horn if you love chai!

I think my love for chai tea is humongous enough to warrant such a bumper sticker on my car. I blame my lovely sister and mother for getting me on the Starbucks chai bandwagon several years ago. But I love my tall, no-water, no-foam chai tea latte bandwagon, and let me tell you why. Number one, it has to do with living in Oregon. I discovered, way back in November 2008, when we visited Portland, that my addiction is slightly cheaper here. In Virginia, my total always came to $3.43. Always. Sometimes Brian, at the Starbucks on Battlefield Blvd., would ask me for the total on my drink....... Here, my chai is $2.85. So, when I feel the urge to have a real tall, no-water, no-foam chai tea latte, I hit up our closest Starbucks, and usually take a leisurely stroll through Target, Barnes&Noble, and Old Navy while I'm at it.

Anywho, all of this rambling to say, the normal cost for my chai is $0.40. You heard me correctly. Thank you Target. Thank you for carrying Tazo chai, decaf to boot.

I have to admit, I tried this product a few years ago and was not happy with the result. Although, maybe it was because I had purchased the organic chai, and it was too strong for my liking. But with this one, I pour 1/3 cup of chai concentrate and 2/3 cup of milk, add in about 1/4 tsp. of sugar, and voila, it's my tall, no-water, no-foam chai tea latte.

Exactly.

I bet if you handed me a Starbucks chai and one that I made from home, I would not be able to tell you the difference. Once again, I need to thank my sister Barb for the find. She's a dandy;-)

Oh, and coupons.com has a $1 off coupon for this chai concentrate. It's on page 16, just to save you a few clicks. And bingo, you can print it twice. Oh thank you.

  4. thanks for the coupon heads up! I CRAVED this right after caiden was born and the fridge was never without a box. If you're into honey, you are technically suppose to make chai with steamed milk + honey---which is pretty good. I give mine a good twirl with the whisk to whip it up a bit. :)

    *if I saw your bumper sticker, I'd totally honk*
