This particular tea is a blend that Vampyre Tea Co is working on (isn’t available on the site just yet)and they asked me to try it and see what I thought of it. Since I’m not the biggest chai fan I wasn’t really looking forward to trying it but I told them I would. I brewed this up like you would any other chai and tried it and it was ok but that is when I got all sorts of creative.

I make myself overnight oats just about every day for the next morning so instead of adding in the normal amount of almond milk I usually do, I added in some of this chai tea brewed a bit stronger than usual. The next morning I had chai tea overnight oats. It was so good. It reminded me of cinnamon oatmeal with a spiced kick. I’ve had it now the last couple of days and I’m pretty impressed. I think if there is a tea I don’t really care for and is just so-so I’m going to start trying this to see if I can find a way to still use it.

That sounds so good!

It was. I don’t know why I had that spark of inspiration there but I’m going to try it with all my Chai and herbal teas that are just laying around right now. Might be able to make a dent in my tea stash that way.

It makes so much sense to do it, too. I’ve added ground spices found in chai to my oatmeal in the past and it was great, but the overnight method must really create a lot of depth and flavour.

Thanks for the awesome idea! I’ve put matcha in my oatmeal and really enjoyed that, but never thought to brew tea for oatmeal…chai sounds like it would be great!

I’m back and hopefully for good! After a bit of a hiatus, I want to get back in the habit of logging my tea journey for various reasons.

I never know how to start these things. I’m a 40ish tea loving gal who enjoys tea parties, horror movies and polka dots/plaid. I have an amazing supportive husband who has allowed our house to be over run by tea in more ways than one. We have four kiddos between us along with our two furbabies that we love as much as they drive us nuts. Our family truly is our world.

Now on to the tea: I love all kinds. I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos- truly is my arch enemy but I love green rooibos. Beyond that, I’ll try everything once or twice to make sure I didn’t bumble up the steepings. Recently got into puerh and enjoying the adventure. If you are interested in something from me, just holler at me. I’m always up for trying new tea blends or sharing with others!

I’ve also started blending up my own teas at http://www.cuppageekteas.com/ I try to make fun unique blends to brighten someones day with.

I am also the admin behind SororiTea Sisters. If you are interested in reviewing teas for us, let me know!. We are always looking for guest reviewers or contributors: http://sororiteasisters.com/.
