When quick, sweet, creamy, and spiced are attributes on your agenda, picking up a canister of Trader Joe's Spicy Chai Tea Latte Mix should move to the top of your to-do list. Taking its cues from the more traditional, South Asian masala chai, our Chai Latte Mix is a blend of black tea, sugar & honey, and a spice blend that includes cinnamon, clove, cardamon, anise, and ginger. The tea & the spices bring an element of tradition to the mix, but then, the traditional takes a turn in favor of convenience and versatility.
Spicy Chai Tea Latte Mix includes milk (hence, the "Latte"), so that when combined with hot water, it mixes to a smooth, creamy consistency you don't find in straight tea. It's delicious hot or cold, making it ideal for this time of year that's not quite summer. When serving it cold, it's best to mix it with hot water, then pour it over ice, to ensure that it mixes smoothly. You can also combine it with ice and whirl in your blender to make a chai "smoothie" that will rival any you'd buy at your local coffee or tea shop.
We're selling each 10 ounce canister for $3.49. There are about seven servings in each canister, making your CPL (that's Cost Per Latte) just under 50¢ - a heck of a lot less expensive than any you'd buy at your local coffee or tea shop, too. You'll find Spicy Chai Tea Latte Mix in our coffee & tea section.
