When my family bought our Tassimo Maker (similar to a Keurig, but one that can make Cappuccinos), Dave discovered his true love… the Chai Latte. He will almost never drink coffee at my house, as long as we have a Tassimo Chai discs left.
In all of my time working at Trader Joe’s and shopping at Trader Joe’s, it never occurred to me to buy their Spicy Chai Latte Mix. Honestly, i normally avoid the coffee/tea area because I would buy everything from it… but this time I happened to stumble upon it and thought I had to bring it home for Dave.
I’m so glad I did! This stuff is the best. It is so easy to make, and at $3 for the entire tin, it’s a bargain! All you have to do, is take a scoop (which is included in the tin) of Chai and mix it with hot water. Pour over ice… add milk… and voila! There you have it. Just as good (if not better) than the Starbucks variety. There are also directions to make it into a hot latte if you choose.
Here’s my secret: I added two drops of Vanilla extract to make it just a touch sweeter. 🙂 For the record, the Chai Master loved it and even had two servings in one sitting!
