    Cinnamon Is Majic

    Almost every morning, I wake up and put on the kettle. Then I steep a Chai Green Tea bad in a mug. Then I remove the tea bag, add cinnamon and some sugar or stevia and finally some rice or soy milk. I think that cinnamon must be magic because I grave it at the most interesting...

    Chai Fanatic

    I have always been an iced-chai type of guy. Until recently, I purchased my Chai Latte from Starbucks... Now I make them at home :) Anyway, the funny part is.. I am home from college visiting my parents and my mom insists that several hours after drinking the Chai tea I was...

    OOOOH Yes I Do!

    I can drink the stuff everyday if I could afford it. I know people bag on Starbucks, but they have my favorite, it's so flavorful and crisp to drink. But on cold mornings I like to sip Oregon Chai when its really hot and just hold it in my mouth as it warms me all over. mmmmmm...

    Chai By the Campfire

    Theres nothing like a nice warm, sweet, and creamy cup of chai tea while sitting by a campfire.  mmmm Ill buy the premade stuff in a can so its easier. You just add water like you would to a cup of hot cocoa. Then you sit back and stare into the fire and relax.

    My Herbal Chai

    When I brew the spices and the tea for my home-made Chai Tea, I usually include a handful of herbs as well. My favorite: a big bunch of fresh mint. This gives the chai tea a refreshing zing - even if I take it hot, it is still such a cooling drink because of the mint essence...

    Yes! ...

    Yes! It's a winter-time treat for me. I'll buy green and red chai tea and sweeten it to my own liking. I'm not fond of the Oregon Chai boxed tea...it's too sweet. But I love chai!

    Chai - Absolutely Delicious

    I adore Chai - in it's tea leaf form, powdered form - ANY form! The best I have ever tasted was from a cafe called "The Jam Shop" on Fairy Meadow, a suburb of Wollongong near Sydney, Australia.  I went there for lunch with a work colleague. They make it according...

    Drinking It Now.

    Someone gave me the idea that I should relax with a cup of tea, so I went and made a chai tea latte. It is delicious, I've thoroughly enjoyed it.  Now I'm alot calmer.  Although, I am contemplating things, and I am afraid of the feelings I am getting

    Yes, I Love Tea In General....

    Yes, I love tea in general. Especially when it's a home-made spice tea. It's always a great blend no matter how you alter it.

    Found A Great Brand!

    Blue Lotus Chai: I like the traditional Masala blend, not too stong, not too weak, perfect with a little milk and very convenient. This one is a finely ground powder so all you have to do is add to hot water. I like it with milk and sugar and it gets spicier with more sugar. It's...

    I Love Chai

    I love Chai. Being of Indian origin, I suppose that is natural. We drink chai all the time.It's amazing to see Chai Tea, as it is called in the West, spread all over, and change so much. I am kind of a purist in some ways, but then again from looking at the history of Chai, even...

    Chai Is Amazing

    I first tried Chai when I started working at Starbucks and I fell in love. I don't so much like the chai tea in the bag as I do the latte kind though. And I almost always drink mine cold. I buy those cartons of Chai concentrate and just put half that, and half cold milk and...

    Random Factoid

    Namaste! In Hindi, the word "chai" means "tea". So....the name of this group is, essentially, I Love Tea Tea. (Not to be confused with I love ***** which many of you, I am aware, do.) What Americans call "chai tea" is actually spiced tea which, in Hindi, is referred to as...
