Think of Trader Joe's Salted Caramel Chai Tea Latte Mix as the drinkable form of the salted caramels you love so much. Or, think of it as the slightly salty, sweetly caramel-y form of your favorite tea drink. Better yet, don't think about it at all. Just drink it.
Trader Joe's Salted Caramel Chai Tea Latte Mix, based on a traditional Indian drink, begins with a blend of black and Darjeeling teas. To that we add a mellifluous mélange of traditional chai spices: cinnamon, anise, clove, cardamom, and ginger. Finally, in addition to the customary spices, Salted Caramel Chai is accentuated by the sweetness of caramel and just enough salt to make you take notice. It's kind of like enjoying a salted caramel candy, only without the chewing.
Depending on your mood (or the weather), you can enjoy Salted Caramel Chai hot or cold. In either case, start with hot water to ensure easy mixing. We've even packed it in a beautifully designed, Indian-inspired container, making it an inspired gift -- or gift-basket inclusion -- for the chai lover on your list. Our price of $3.99 for each 10 ounce canister (that'll make about seven servings) makes it the gift that keeps on giving. You'll find it in our coffee & tea section.
