After participating in the 1st Oregon Chai Twitter party celebrating the release of their new Chai Tea Latte 10-oz. canister, I was recently given the chance to do a review and giveaway of their chai mix as a part of their "Me Time" campaign. They've enlisted the help of national wellness expert Peggy Hall from PeggyHall.com to help spread the joy of "Me Time" to all Oregon Chai drinkers!
If you're not familiar with Chai Tea Latte, here's the description from the Oregon Chai website that I think does a great job of explaining what it is. "It's a rich, creamy blend of black tea, honey, vanilla and spices. It's a lot like a latte (minus the coffee, of course)." The great thing about the new 10-oz. canister is that you can use as much or as little of the mix as you want without having to worry about leaving behind open packets and wasting it.
Now, I have to admit that I was a bit nervous about doing this review at first because I have NEVER been a chai fan. I must have tried something terrible in the past because my husband loves it, but I never wanted to drink it after I tried it for the first time. After tasting Oregon Chai's mix, however, I am now a believer in the wonderfulness of Chai Tea Lattes! I am not just saying this to be nice or because they gave me a free product but because I really do think they have a great product that I now love!
We had a cold front come in yesterday, so I decided to try some Oregon Chai on what felt like an early fall Colorado night-a perfect time for a warm drink. My husband says the secret to great chai is in using a little milk, but we were out of milk, so I used a little bit of French Vanilla creamer instead. It was the perfect addition! I enjoyed a warm, creamy Chai tea, and I actually wanted to have a 2nd cup but made myself wait because it was so late at night. Now I can't wait to try an iced version since the cool weather won't last long and it's been so hot during the day in Colorado Springs this summer!
Oregon Chai was very generous, and they are giving 2 Ten Talents readers the opportunity to win their very own 10 ounce canister sample (pictured) of their yummy chai and either a double-walled acrylic reusable iced tea cup or an Oregon Chai mega mug! I have to warn you though...if you win and try this for the first time, I think you're going to have to keep buying it for the rest of your life :)
