When the Chai trend came around I was surprised to learn that many of my friends had never had a Chai Latte. Maybe it’s a Russian thing, but growing up we always added milk to our tea. I’ve been a TAZO® fan for a long time, my favorite go to drink had always been the Passion Tea. But the new TAZO® Chai Latte flavors which introduce sweet and spicy to my palette with every sip is really something else. It’s rich and creamy, made from tea leaves, spices and milk!
What is a Chai Latte?
Chai introduces you to a bit of sweet and spicy, the perfect black tea blend. It’s been around for ages, dating back in Indian history to over 5,000 years ago. It’s warm and inviting, comforting and relaxing, just like visiting with an old friend. A Chai Latte adds milk to the combination for a unique creamy and rich flavor.

Sitting down with my hot cup of TAZO® Chai Latte was refreshing, and a beautiful introduction to my senses as I sipped on flavors of sweet cinnamon and spicy ginger, while inhaling the aroma of fragrant cardamom, caramel and vanilla. There was something special about these flavors, something that took me back to my childhood kitchen, sitting with my mama and enjoying quiet conversation over chai lattes. Now I enjoy them when winding down in the evening with a good book in hand.
